20+ Log Cabin Quilt Patterns

Log cabin quilts are timeless. Find over 20 log cabin quilt patterns to make your own. I've created a section of free log cabin quilt patterns as well as patterns you can purchase.

Classic log cabin blocks date back to the civil war and are still used widely today. It is said that a black center indicated a safehouse on the underground railroad.

Log cabin blocks are a great way to use up those jelly roll strips you have laying around. (Are you like me and just have to buy them, but don't really have a plan yet to use them?) Strips of fabric are sewn around a square center block. 

Make your own log cabin quilt using one of these patterns.

10+ T-Shirt Quilt Patterns and Tutorials

A t-shirt quilt (or memory quilt) is a quilt made of old t-shirts that have special meaning. The end result will bring back memories of sports played, events attended and enjoyed activities. It should reflect the personality of the recipient. 

I have a son graduating from high school next week. Have I made him a t-shirt quilt? Nope. I'll be honest, T-shirt quilts intimidate me a little bit.

So I decided to start by researching. I  found several in depth tutorials on a few different ways to make them. I also found patterns to buy that take the guess work out of t-shirt quilts.
