Build Your Best Log Cabin Quilt - Fons' and Porter Review


I was approached quite awhile back during my interim move, dealing with pneumonia to review this ebook and let you my readers know what I think of it.
Sadly, that was way back in December and my humblest apologies go out to Eric over and F & P for taking so long to sit down and spend sometime looking through this book!
I have always loved Log Cabin quilts, they are so beautiful and simplistic at the same time and the patterns in this book are so imaginative and easy to do.
There are 24 pages of amazing tips to help you do everything from adjusting the tension on your bobbin without loosing that tiny little screw to how to make a lumpless binding.  Very good tips especially for people like me who are all thumbs.
I know that I will be making the woven log cabin in the near future and will give you updates on how to do it.
In the mean while, take your time, grap a cupa and sit down and relax with this free Ebook!
