When I was approached by Fons and Porter to review one of their ebooks, I was jumping up and down. It was really nice to be asked to review anything, but Log Cabin...! They must have known it was one of my favourite patterns
What an ebook!! It is one of the best I have ever seen. It is chock full of pictures, tips and charts, and contributors include Ricky Tims, Shon McMain and Marti Mitchell.
The three main types of Log Cabin are covered - Traditional, Courthouse Steps and Chevron, and there are examples to make of each of these patterns by the above named quilters. There is something here for everyone - big quilts, small quilts, traditional quilts and modern ones too. I love the pictures of the antique quilts in the collection of Sara Miller. There are some absolute beauties!
 In my opinion, the cutting charts included in the ebook are worth downloading alone, but when you consider you have a mini tutorial on bobbin work with trapunto AND a step-by step picture tutorial on binding with piping, it does not get much better. This ebook has loads of tips and eye candy, and the nice people at Fons and Porter are giving you the opportunity to download it for FREE!!!!!!!! How good is that?
So click HERE to get your very own copy. You will not be disappointed! I will leave you with one more picture. Drool!
Till next time.
