NARROW SEAM ALLOWANCES! These are narrow logs. To reduce the bulk and make them easier to press, the seam allowances are slightly narrower than the normal 0.25 inch. Perfect! Another advantage of Inklingo!
A Choice of Methods
Sew by hand while you watch TV, or sew by machine—your choice.
Love the lines. Quilt more!
NOT JUST LOG CABIN! Use these shapes any time you need rectangles!
As usual, these shapes are so versatile that it is difficult to name a collection. Rectangles can be used for many, many designs other than Log Cabin, as described on the blog.
