Welcome to my day on the BOB Blog Hop! If you regularly visit my blog you might think this is a blog hop about my husband……Builder Bob……wrong. AccuQuilt has designed several dies that will make a complete block and they are known as Block on Board.

The die I chose to work with today is the GO! Log Cabin 12-inch die and here are a couple of things I made.

I have been making bath runners for years and I think everyone in my family has at least one.

I also put some of the log cabin blocks together and appliqued this cute lama in the center. I haven’t decided if this will be a pillow or a small wall hanging so it isn’t finished yet.

I used my GO! Electric cutting machine to make the blocks.

I wanted to show you the different cuts on the log cabin die. I actually lifted the batik fabric from every other cut so you could see it.

This is a big die, it is 10-inches wide by 24-inch long. The finished log cabin blocks are 12-inches square.

Log Cabin Bath Runner

I made smaller log cabin blocks for my bath runner. I just eliminated a couple of the last rows. I quilted a little feather design in the center of the bath runner. You can see that I just used 2 log cabin blocks. It measures 8 x 16 inches.

I made 8 inch blocks but with the die you can make up to 12 inch blocks.

I definitely think this will be a pillow.

I still had some blocks left so I added a couple more rows and will make a couple small table runners that will be 10 inches by 20 inches.
