So when Fons & Porter contacted me and asked me to check out their new eBook, Build Your Best Log Cabin, I was happy to say yes.* Mmm...more log cabin ideas for inspiration!
This 24-page eBook includes photos of eight different quilts, both antique and current, serving up examples in various block styles. I really enjoyed seeing examples of so many different ways to approach this block. My favorite quilt was designed by Ricky Tims, featuring his hand-dyed fabrics, though the antique Courthouse Steps quilt was a close second.

Blog readers typically drawn to quilts made from more contemporary prints in light, airy settings may find the photos a bit dark. I do think that is offset by the number of quilts made from solids, which demonstrate an understanding of what appeals to many of today's quilters (particularly those in the blog world). If you love log cabins and the infinite possibilities this classic block offers, you'll find this eBook to be a useful reference tool, no question. It's worth adding to your e-library. (Do you have one of those yet? I do...it's a folder on my desktop called "quilt pdfs." Original, isn't it?)
And the good news is that this eBook is free, so you can check it out yourself! Click here to access a copy of it, and then save it to your computer for your next log cabin project.
