Continuing our year of 6 by 9 inch rectangle blocks, we're making this log cabin variation for the March Block Lotto.
The color guidelines are to use white + gray + your choice of color.
The construction is like the Court House steps style log cabin, with "logs" added in pairs, on opposite sides. The fabric placement makes is similar to a square traditional block called White House Steps.
I always say it, but I do think this has lots of quilt design/setting possibilities. If you'd like to play with some of those possibilities, my directions are here:
Steps Block Pattern
The pattern includes directions for making the block, a coloring sheet, a foundation for paper foundation piecing, and the virtual quilt made from block photos from the Block Lotto.
