The nice people at Fons and Porter approached me and asked if I would review one of their e-books.
Build your Best Log Cabin Quilts
you may have already seen a review or two on this, but then again maybe not!
I found this little e-book very informative, with historical reference, as well as clear and concise instructions, though they do assume an element of competence in cutting skills, having said that, the tables for cutting instructions are very well presented, giving plenty of alternatives for different size blocks on each sample quilt.
this book covers 3 basic log cabin patterns, traditional, courthouse steps and chevron, with visual examples of both historical and modern made quilts giving the reader plenty of alternatives and creative scope in the decision making progress.
if I were to have any criticism of this book , it would be the modern versions of the quilts made are all very traditional in their use of fabrics, which, whilst beautiful, may not help someone with a more modern fresh outlook and stash to see the potential this traditional block can have.
Thanks to Fons and Porter for asking me, and for the e-book too, I do love a good reference book and this will be added to my collection.
You too can have your own copy by heading on over here!
now, back to some last minute makes :)
