Dustin asked us to make four traditional Log Cabin blocks for him. He wanted the center and each of the surrounding logs to be cut to 1" - meaning tiny strips. I love working with tiny pieces so this was right up my alley. Each block should end up around 6.5" unfinished.
The coolest thing about these blocks is the way he wanted us to play with color. Dustin asked for two brown blocks, one brown / blue and one brown / black or gray but he wanted us to set the contrasting colors on the diagonal. I'll admit I was a little confused by what he wanted from the brown on brown block, but another member of our group posted hers with a contrasting dark brown / light brown or cream combo and Dustin commented that they were perfect so I followed suit.
They actually finish over 6.5" but I wanted to give Dustin a little more to play with just in case. They were a lot of fun and my iron got a workout making these. Hope you like them Dustin!
