Log Cabin Quilt

This is a quick log cabin quilt that my friend Margaret hooked me up with. What I like about this quilt is that it quilts as you build the blocks, which make the process quicker than the normal hand quilting. Pick dark's and lights when choosing material. I used some of my scraps, and added to it. This quilt is for my grandson Robert he is a Raider fan. My friend is so amazing she surprised me with a piece of Raider material.

Cut all strips.

Back side of blanket.

Low loft  polyester batting.

Top material muslin fold in half iron, and fold in half again. This is done to find the center of the square.

With black material on bottom, batting on top of that, and white muslin on the top. Sew first 2 1/2 inch square through all 3 layers. Make sure to pin the square in the center using the iron marks to center the square. Pin the out side of the layers of materials or the square will shift.
Place the next piece right sides together, sew one side only finger press back as shown in the photo.
Build up the next layer right sides together.

Finger press back.
Continue until you have build the whole square. Repeat 20 times.

Here you can see the layers.

This is the back of the quilt which will be sewn by hand.
