I started by adding the first log on the right side (3 o’clock position) of the center square. Then I added the remaining logs counterclockwise.
You can add the logs clockwise. The goal is to follow the same direction when adding the logs. So add all the logs in a clockwise direction. Or, counterclockwise.

Quilt Block Assembly Diagram cool to pillow
Take a look at this quilt block assembly diagram. It shows the order of sewing the logs to and around the center square. (In the diagram below, the center may not look like a square, but it started out as a square.)
The center square is labeled ‘center’. The logs are numbered 1 through 12. Think of the sides of the center square as the 3 o’clock (right side), 6 o’clock (bottom), 9 o’clock (left side) and 12 o’clock (top) in a clock position.
For this log block, sew the first log (1) to the center at the 3 o’clock position. Then proceed counterclockwise around the center. Refer to this diagram as needed while assembling the block. Quilt Block Measurements In this tutorial, I am aiming for a 12-inch wonky log cabin.
To get the block to the desired size, you continue adding logs around the center in what are called rounds. After adding each round, use a square ruler to check the size of the block.
Add rounds until the block is 1 or 2 inches larger than the size you want. Then trim the block using a rotating square cutting ruler (you’ll see this being used when we get to this step).
