The Courthouse Steps Block is a variation of the Log Cabin block, and was introduced to the quilting world during the civil war. I have to admit it is truly one of my favorites.
Using fall colored Kona solids and a newsprint fabric I created a table topper to get a modern look on the very traditional courthouse steps block. Topper measures 19 x 19 inches.
My inspiration came from the book I Love Log Cabins by Karen Burns. I fell in love with so many of the patterns found in the book. I’m sure I will find a way to make smaller versions of each 🙂
As always I love making mug rugs to match my runners. After seeing Wendy’s from Pieceful Thoughts acorn mini quilt blocks and Abbie from Sparkle On pineapple quilt blocks I had to make some for hubby and I.
I prefer my mug rugs to be rectangular in shape so I added a strip to each block, they finished at 6 x 7 inches.
Sew cute don’t you think?!!

Until next time – Happy Sewing!
