Hi,

:roll: I forgot to change to the inch sewing foot, shame on me; I will simply add another round and cheat a little bit with the background fabric.

Sounds like a plan! :D

Hi all,
I just sewed the log cabin and mine is only 4 1/2x 4 1/2 when I follow the instructions. The middle square is 1 1/2x 1 1/2 and the stripes are all 1 wide, so with 4 on each side it does not get bigger.

Is any one else having this problem, or do I have a mistake in my block?

Thx for your answers, Michaela
The center square should measure 1" after the strips are sewn around it, and the strips should each measure 1/2" finished. If you have 4 strips on each side, that should come out to 5 1/2", or 5" finished. As Rita suggested, check your seam allowance and the size you cut the strips.

Hi Michaela, Is it possible that your seam allowance is too big? I used a paper piecing method (got a template from about.com and just left out the last row of logs to finish at 5.5") which was much easier.
