Choose 8 coordinating fat quarters to make this set of placemats. Each placemat features a band of three log cabin blocks. A traditional log cabin, courthouse steps, half log cabin, and square in a square log cabin are all showcased.
What a great way to learn the full potential of the Creative Grids Log Cabin Trim Tool for 4-inch finished blocks! Since each round is trimmed before the next round is added, any variations due to cutting, pressing, and sewing are corrected before the next round is added so they come out perfect every time!
