Wonderful New Ideas for the Log Cabin Block! — Review by Patty Martin
Overall Rating
Having a Math Degree, I loved reading about Robert's process on how he originally came up with these unique log cabin designs. It made me feel like I could easily design quilts like these as well. You certainly don't need a Math degree to make one of these beautiful patterns in the book though. They are all comprised of the simple log cabin block. Anyone can make them. My biggest problem will be deciding which of the stunning patterns I'd like to try first! (Posted on 1/2/14)
Hill & Valley Log Cabins — Review by Christine Brown
Creating the visual illusion of curves with only straight-line sewing has fascinated quilters and designers for centuries. This book offers lots of creative ways to do exactly that using variations of the classic Log Cabin block. I found every one of the 13 projects to be fresh and appealing, and I think this is one of the best Log Cabin design books I’ve seen in many years. Highly recommended. (Posted on 2/28/13)
