If you liked the Corner Block from the log cabin sampler quilt, you can make some nice quilts using only that block. Here are a few suggested layouts to try.
Hop and a Step
This option uses corner blocks exactly like in the sampler quilt, using light, medium and dark fabrics. The alternating placement gives a staircase effect.
Changing the orientation of some of the blocks makes a square of medium fabrics appear. The light and dark alternating gives a shadow effect.
Fans in a Row
This option uses only one colour way of corner block – light square and dark outer corner. By turning the blocks on point and alternating with plain blocks, a row of fans appears. This would be a great option to showcase free motion quilting.
Every Which Way
This is the same layout as Hop and a Step, but the blocks are oriented randomly. I wanted to call it drunkard’s path, since it has that same feeling as staggering about randomly, but drunkard’s path is such a well-known pattern I couldn’t use that name.
If you use your imagination and maybe graph paper and crayons, you can come up with your own great quilt layouts. Remember that changing colours makes a big difference too!
