Two on Two – Two-Block Log Cabin Runner by Jane Patrick

Log Cabin is a favorite block weave among weavers because of its versatility. Since log cabin is a block weave, designs can be developed through the use of profile drafts. Profile drafts are an excellent way to plan successful table runner designs without preparing actual thread-by-thread drawdowns. Any two-block design can be converted to log cabin.  Jane suggests that since the contrast between these two effects is quite subtle, simple designs usually work best for log cabin.
