    Could log cabin units be done using strip piecing method?

      Once again, I’m confused by Sarah’s numbers
      for each color to make 8 cabins you need to cut
      32 walls
      16 windows, window tops and window bottoms
      8 doors an door tops

        That's what my instructions say. I'm not sure what you're looking at that says anything different than that. The only issue is that there are 4 of the second color so there are a total of 12 doors - 4 and 8. There are also 24 windows - 8 and 16. I just put mine into those piles so each color house had their own stack of windows and doors.

        You are making 12 cabins, 8 are Cabin A and 4 are Cabin B. There are four walls in each cabin, so 8 x 4 for the Cabin A is 32. There are two windows so 2 bottoms and 2 tops. 8 x 2 for Cabin A and 4 x 2 for Cabin B. There is one door per cabin, no math needed there.

      On page 5 I think there are 2 errors? Underneath Diagram 8 the sentence says "Stitch a 1" x 2" cabin wall...." There is no 2" cabin wall. It should be 1.5"
      And
      The sentence giving us the 4.5" x 4.5" cabin dimension should come after the sentence telling us to stitch on the roof

      Such small pieces, but so stinking cute cabins!

        Editing a comment
        I agree Carol. There is a discrepancy between the cutting instructions on page 2 and the sewing instructions on page 5 for the wall of the cabins. on page 2 is states for Cabin A bottom of window 1" X 1 1/2" while on page 5 the sewing for the cabin wall it states " Stitch a 1" x 2" cabin wall piece to the bottom of these strips". There are no 1" x 2" wall pieces.

      • Donna M. commented
        Editing a comment
        I concur. Also, rather than calling every little piece "cabin wall piece" it would be easier to call them top of door, top of window and bottom of window. Suggest you all take a look at Barbara's Blog on making the cabins. She has an excellent diagram of all the parts and how each unit needs to measure. It cleared all this up for me.

      This is for Cabin A, there are 8 of these & they are the same color
      Cabin B has different numbers and there are 4 of these cabins

      I hope this helps

        Thank you, Donna! That is why I put so much time and effort on the blog posts and LIVES for BOM.

          I agree! Without Barbara's Blog and all the useful measurements when sewing the sections of each cabin I would not have been "successful". Thank you Barbara. They were little treasures!

        This isn't a question, but a tip. I remember my longarmer saying when a top has a lot of seams on the outside edge, do a stay-stitch all around the edge. That helps the seams from popping open.
        I am getting ready to sew the month 11 borders on and noticed each corner star on my center did have a popped seam. Too much time on and off the design wall LOL Anyway, I am going to stay-stitch the outside edge of the Month 11 borders.

          This is an excellent tip. You will definitely want to do on the outside of this quilt with the “piano key” style border.

        Carol G, you are correct on both these points.

        If you only knew... How many corrections were needed and still, things slip through the cracks. I feel terrible when something gets by, but, oh, well, I'm sure most everyone has figured that out.

        Thank you for catching these two items.

          Barbara I know from your comments, blog, & FB Lives that you put a ton of work into the BOMs before we ever see month 1. It is so appreciated. I am a methodical quilter & I keep the diagram in front of me when sewing a block...it just didn't work!
