Here Kitty Kitty Quilt Tutorial ~ Log Cabin Block


"Kitty in the Cabin" Quilt ~ Log Cabin Block


Here are the cutting instructions to pre-cut
 log cabin strips to size.
  
That said,  I used my preferred method ...


I cut WOF strips ... 


... and sewed and trimmed as I went along.


I fussy cut 3.5" center squares


I set the squares on he strips and sewed. 


Press


Trim


Repeat


 Continue this for each addition. 


I always trim and square my blocks after each strip is added.


I would do this even if I had precut my strips to size to keep my block square

My pressing preference is to press all seams inward.

Block measures 12.5 square unfinished.
