Log Cabin Three Ways with Catherine-Marie Longtin

  • Make a Selection

Maximum Class Size: 6 Students

Join inspirational textile artist and quilter Catherine-Marie Longtin to talk about her work and explore log cabins - her favourite piecing technique.

A log cabin block traditionally consists of strips of fabric (the logs) arranged around a square. It has been used since the middle of the 19th century, and its popularity as a piecing technique in quilting is no doubt due to its versatility, both within the block and in the arrangement of multiple blocks together. It can be endlessly refreshed and renewed.
In this class, we will focus on the single block, and you will learn how to create three different log cabins using linen: the double line, foundation pieced and herringbone linen log cabin.

Techniques covered in class:

  • Cut and handle linen for patchwork.

  • Double line log cabin.

  • Foundation pieced log cabin.

  • Herringbone linen log cabin variations.

  • Presenting your work: quilted cushion or artwork stretched on canvas frame.

Level: You will need to be reasonably confident with a sewing machine to attend this class.
Materials: All tools and materials are included. We will be using plain linen fabric. If you would prefer to bring your own fabric along to the class please do so.
