TUTORIAL | Scrappy Log Cabin Block

I love making blocks with my scrap fabrics.

There’s something about mixing un-coordinated fabrics together to make a block look coordinated that strangely appeals to me.

(I hope that makes sense?)

I think it’s also the thrill of pairing fabrics you’ve used in separate projects and fusing them together into one little patchwork square – ahh, the memories!

(It’s the simple pleasures, right?!)

In my opinion, the Log Cabin block has to be one of the best stash-busting blocks you can make.

It’s quick, easy, super simple and can be so visually affective you swoon at the sight of it everyday!

So here I present to you a little video tutorial of how I make a very free and easy Scrappy Log Cabin Block!

If you’ve watched this and have any questions, post a comment here or on my YouTube channel and I’ll be more than happy to answer them.

Do you have any other blocks you would like me to demonstrate? Pop your suggestions in a comment and I’ll take them on board!

Happy Sewing Friends! xx

  1. Hi Amanda, I’m back home in Scotland and came home in Dec after a happy three months holiday in Sydney. Loved it!. Your tutorial is so sweet and I am advising the new sewers in my craft class to watch and learn from an expert in simple instruction. Keep it up. Thanks.


    1. Oh wow, thank you so much for your lovely comment!
      In my opinion, Sydney has to be one of the best cities in the world – I’m glad you had a wonderful holiday here!
      Thanks for sharing my tutorial! πŸ™‚


  2. This is a very cute tutorial. I really liked the quilt you made in your background. You have nice taste in fabrics and I guess they have nice choices in Australia. Very pretty.

    Thanks for making this tutorial! Sharon


    1. You’re more than welcome!
      I’m always making mistakes – I think it’s only fair to show through the bloopers how imperfect I can be in front of the camera!
      I’m glad you enjoy watching. All my hard work is paid off with lovely comments like yours πŸ˜€
