Hi Gwen

I can't find the page you refer to, so I'm not sure what pattern you mean, but is it a bit like this?

This is one I made, it is foundation pieced

Hi Gwen

I've found the picture now, it is the same principle as mine above, you just start with the centre on point, and foundation piece the logs in exactly the same way.

EQ6 Tutorial

This is a lesson on how to draw one yourself in EQ6 (you can apply the same rules to paper though)

If you need help, if you tell me what size block and what size centre you want, I could make you a pdf of a template

Hi Katy,

thanks for replying to my quest I have the EQ7 but just looking at the pretty blocks I havent tried to do my own yet.

The log pattern, I am going to use jellyrolls as I have already made a kingsize with them and the finished blocks are 12x12 if you could help me by doing a pdf for me that would be great and as far as the centre, well!! I dont have much of a clue?? I am ok working to a pattern but not clever enough yet to try my own designs yet hence my s.o.s call. So if you could direct me or help in any way I will be your best freind forever.

With regards

Gwen

Here you go Gwen

This is on A2 paper, because it is a 12in block, you won't be able to print it out at home on one page. You can print it at a copy shop if you email it to them, but if you decide that you want it less than 12in I can make it smaller to fit on an a4 sheet

Has anyone read the books by Judy Martin? She is one great lady where log cabin patterns are concerned she has several books out and she has turned me where quilting with logs go.
