Log Cabin Twist is the Block of the Month for July!
This block uses up lots of scraps – all those thin strips of fabric that are too small for much else… you know those ones you’ve been saving because you can’t bear to waste a scrap? (…or is that just me?)
I’m calling it an ‘improv’ (no paper) pieced block. This block is typically put together as a paper pieced block but with a little patience and extra measure (meaning…. measure measure measure – THEN cut!) you’ll really enjoy watching this block unfold. Get creative with the placement of your colors and come up with an entirely different look to this block. Look at these similar paper pieced blocks on Craftsy that have different color placement.
When making this improv block I prefer to use a square ruler like the omnigrid to help with measuring and cutting – The one I used is 9.5″ square. You could use another size and then switch to a regular long quilters ruler if/when the square starts to get to short for your measures and cuts. Good Luck and have fun with it!
