A sashed version of the string log cabin blocks. Rather than half light and dark, these blocks use mostly medium and dark fabrics and the sashing and border are cut 2.5 inches.

    thank you so much for sharing, I also downloaded the pattern for the
    Patriotic String star, I have alot of those fabrics, and I have pieced
    a few star blocks, but this is way easier and I can really get a few
    tops out thank you so much


  5. Thanks so much for posting these patterns. I just love your log cabin at the top and decided to use up some of my scraps in blue and yellow to make a quilt. It is amazing how quickly they go together.. I have 30 blocks done and have been doing them in increments of 10…. around my 2 toddlers nap times the last week. Thanks again.

    This is great! I have so many strings pilling up in my totes, I never knew that you could make log cabin blocks with strings, I’m printing your intructions off and adding them to my string totes.
