Adding the cornerstones to the log cabin block gives it a totally different look. If you don’t want to make the whole Log Cabin Sampler Quilt, but you love the look of the cornerstone block, these optional cornerstone log cabin layouts will give you lots of ideas to get started.
Barrage of Arrows
From a distance, this quilt reminds me of a stream of arrows coming in from the top corner. It’s actually just a bunch of cornerstone log cabin blocks lined up nicely.
Changing the orientation on every other block gives diagonal stripes.
This is the same as the barn raising layout, but with a lot more going on.
Sweater or socks? Does it really matter?
On point, these blocks are reminiscent of the flower basket block.
Remember that colour changes everything, so you never know what you’ll discover as you play with the blocks.
