Format: Paperback
Need a fast gift for the baby shower or just a fast introduction to patchwork? Eleanor Burns is there for you, with great illustrations, easy to understand instructions, and delicious photos of finished projects. An added bonus: detailed info on fabric quantities for various sizes of finished quilt (wall hanging, crib, twin, etc.) You don't have to struggle with the math! In fact, your only real challenge will be picking colors. She classifies "Log Cabin" as an "easy" project. Don't be misled; the finished projects can dazzle, despite the relatively simple construction methods. You can probably turn out that baby shower quilt in about 2 evenings. A king-size quilt obviously takes longer, but that's because of the time you'll spend wrestling with the greater amount of finished piecework in the machine quilting stage. Although you'll find the basic instructions for log cabin blocks in any number of quilting books, "Log Cabin Patterns" rates a place on any quilter's bookshelf.

Format: Paperback
Eleanor Burns does an excellent job of making quilting simple for beginners. Every step, *every* one, is clearly photographed, so that you know what to do. She works hard to simplify the task of making a quilt, and I think she succeeds. If this had been the first quilting book I picked up, I would have approached my initial projects with a lot more confidence -- and with fewer mistakes.

However, the book has been valuable for me even though I'm... well, I'm not sure of the "intermediate" label, yet, but I'm far from a rank beginner. One reason is the clarity of her instructions. I had attempted to make a log cabin quilt as one of my earliest projects, and I made two boo-boos that Burns would have warned me against. (They were dumb enough, in retrospect, that she should have slapped me. That quilt top is hidden in a drawer, because I'd be too embarrassed to give it away.)

Also -- and the reason I picked up this book in the first place -- the instructions are given for every size quilt imaginable, from a wall hanging to crib quilt to extra-large king. Most quilt books give instructions for just one size of quilt; if you want to make another (such as a king instead of a double), you have to figure out the fabric requirements on your own. This book tells you exactly how much you'll need for each size; even better, it reassures you about the fabric usage during construction ("at this point, you should be able to sew three blocks for each strip").

I'm almost done with a crib quilt (a gift for an expectant niece), and I'm quite pleased with the results. It's a pretty quilt, and for the first time my blocks require no trimming! I'm also happy with the speed of construction; this really has been very easy and swift.

This book's step by step instructions on how to cut and speed piece this type of quilt makes it easy for beginners. I had not done quilting before and my first project, a baby quilt, turned out absolutely gorgeous! Don't let the title fool you, you probably cannot finish the quilt in one day unless you spent a good 10-12 hours straigt working on it, but you can get one finished quite fast with this method. I definately recommend this book if you want to create a beautiful quilt that looks like you spent months piecing it together. The directions are clear and pictures, especially the variety of designs you can create, are very helpful. I'll be making other quilts using this book. If you want to learn to quilt with good results the first time, get this book.

I never cared for the log cabin design until I saw this book. The colors and the different ways you can put the log cabin design together to acquire different effects is excellent. This books explains everything from measuring, fabric choice, yardage needed and cutting, sewing the blocks, putting the quilt together, borders and backing, to binding and finishing the quit. This book explains all the tools needed and how to use them. The best illustrations I've ever seen and so clear and easy to follow. This book is a must for beginners, as well as for people like me who taught myself and picked up some bad habbits.

Thank you Eleanor! I knew next to nothing about quilting before purchasing this book. As a beginner, I needed something quick & easy to give me confidence and get me started. This book is superbly written for the beginner; simple, clear, & precise directions with color photos. From the shopping list to the 1,2,3 directions, this book a beginners must have. Even though I don't think a beginner can make this quilt in a day, I made my very first quilt (Lap Robe size) in two days.

I was extremely pleased with this book. Ms.Burns made this so simple. I have onlly made a few quilts and thought that a log cabin was out of my league, but after some encouragement from my husband I decided to try it out. I am still in awe that I actually made something so beautiful. This would be an excellent book for a beginner, because there is only straight line sewing. It also teaches you how to "birth" a quilt, which is very helpful.
