Here is the block image with the cutting measurements (for the old-fashined cut to size method), and an image of Log Cabin Trim Tool to go modern and make your block in half the time and effort.
Making The Quilt
1. Sew the strips around the center square as shown and make a total of 37 blocks as indicated.
2. Sew 24 of the blocks together for the top right section of the quilt as shown.
3. Cut an applique strip 8-1/2" x 48-1/2"and sew to the side of the top right block assembly. Cut an applique strip 8-1/2" x 40-1/2" and sew to the bottom of the top right block assembly to reach across the first applique strip.
4. Use a quarter as the template to cut the large pink berries and a nickel as the template to cut the smaller blue berries. Draw an oval with points at each end for the leaves using the nickle for the center width of the leaf to make your template. Cut the undulating stem 3/8" wide on the bias of the brown fabric. Use the steam-a-seam 2 strips to fuse the vine in place. Use steam a seam fusible web to back the berries and leaves. Fuse the stem, leaves and berries in place. Option, zig-zag stitch with matching color threads or invisible thread to secure the applique pieces.
5. Pay careful attention to the color placement and orientation of the blocks to sew 7 log cabin blocks in a vertical row and join to the right side of the applique strip. Repeat to join the remaining 5 log cabin blocks to the bottom of the quilt.
6. Layer the quilt top, batting and backing. Quilt the layers together. Cut 2-1/4" wide brown binding strips, sew together end-to-end, and fold in half lengthwise to bind the outside edges of the quilt.
