Log Cabin Book Review and Free Download

I was asked to review the new Fons and Porter E-book called Build Your Best Log Cabin Quilt. I've always loved Fons & Porter's magazine so I was more than happy to review their new e-book. 



This book contains 24 pages of information and patterns filled with beautiful illustrations. There's a log cabin history, instructions on how to build your blocks, machine quilting ideas and trapunto quilting. 
There are three different log cabin blocks. Traditional, courthouse step and chevron style.


Traditional 

 Chevron

 Courthouse Step

Each style has a sample and a chart for making various block sizes from 4 1/2" to 13 1/2". There's even tips along the way to make piecing your blocks a breeze.
This log cabin book is very well done. The quilts are beautiful, instructions are easy to understand and I love the many options available to create my own quilt.
This e-book is available as a free download. You'll be making these beautiful quilts in no time. I already want to make the woven courthouse step quilt. Love the use of the solid colors against the black background.
