Inspired by the design of log cabin quilt blocks, the Courthouse Steps Block has a unique sense of perspective and style that will come together with the right colors. You can make a series of individual quilt blocks and put them together into larger wall quilts or hang just one of these quilt block patterns up to add your own unique approach to quilted decor to your home. Be sure to check out the variations included in the tutorial for even more ways to take log cabin quilting block designs in a new direction.

For beginners For a long time I thought "Courthouse Steps" was the same as "Log Cabin". If you see them side by side, you realize "Courthouse" radiates from the center, and "Log Cabin" spirals around the small block in the middle.
