A traditional log cabin block has 4 sides of fabric strips and usually, two sides will be in a dark color or print and two will be white or a contrasting fabric.
Now what we are going to do is sew one strip right sides together to one side of your starting hexagon using a standard 1/4″ seam allowance. I started with my white fabric.
Trim up the ends of the strip on your first seam to prepare for your next seam. Use your ruler to line up with the next side of the hexagon you will join a strip to.
Repeat the process of sewing strips of any width to the next side of the hexagon – going clockwise.
