Welcome to the first Block of our Pot Holder Quilt-a-long!

Block 1 is a modified Log Cabin block. I love the simplicity of this block. It makes your pretty fabric shine.

You start your block with the small square and build onto it by adding strips. In a traditional Log Cabin block you would add strips to all four sides of your square. In this block we are only adding strips onto two of the sides. I love how quick and easily this block goes together. The design looks great when adding a loop to the corner.
