Abstract Log Cabins

Leave it to Katie Pasquini Masopust to come up with another masterful way to make art quilts. In her new book Artful Log Cabin Quilts, Katie leads you through her ingenious method of making abstract log cabin quilts by starting starting with a photograph or other inspirational image. 

Katie explains how to choose an inspirational image by showing examples of what’s good, what’s not good, and how to improve them.

Creating grids to place over the inspirational image provides the structure for making log cabin blocks that interpret the colors, values, and shapes, allowing you to create an abstract version of your original inspiration.
