Check the Log Cabin Blocks's Fabric and Seams

  1. Remove the log cabin block from the sewing machine and check placement of the new piece as you did before. Trim the seam, then finger press the new piece in place.

  2. Select a dark strip for piece 5 and place it right side down along the right edges of pieces 1, 2 and 4. Trim excess length if necessary.
