Wishes Quilt Along: Log Cabin Block

Welcome back to the Wishes Quilt Along! Can you believe we are already in month five? This year is flying by! This program benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation and we are so thankful for all of your donations thus far!

You have helped us reach 45% of our $10,000 goal so far, and we know we can push it all the way to 100% with your help. We and Moda Fabrics will be matching up to $10,000 of your contributions, so put us to that challenge!

If you haven't yet, we invite you to join our quilt along and make a difference to the kids of Make-A-Wish. Today is the fifth block in the program, the classic Log Cabin!

Are you ready to get started? Start by downloading the FREE Log Cabin PDF Pattern.

Once you have the pattern downloaded and your fabric cut, watch this video tutorial for a closer look at piecing the Log Cabin block. We absolutely adore log cabin blocks, and we have plenty of tips for building out the block.

After piecing this block, please head to our Wishes Quilt Along Make-A-Wish Donation Page to contribute to our cause.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which will be matched by Moda Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop for a grand total of $20,000. Every dollar helps, so please contribute whatever you can!

We encourage you to donate after downloading each free pattern.

We are all sold out of Quilt Kits using the Wishes collection by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics, but you can download the Fabric Requirements PDF and choose your own fabrics for this quilt!

We hope you enjoy sewing the Log Cabin block! Post your photos and see what everyone else is sewing on the Wishes Quilt Along Flickr Group or on the Wishes Quilt Along Facebook Group. Stop by next month for the debut of the Susannah block!
