The Log Cabin bag is one of the easiest pattern I share on this blog and it won’t take you long to finish it, for beginners it might require more time but for advanced quilters it will require one or two hours of sewing to finish it.
Bags made with applique and hand quilting will require to work more on them and for this reason it will take longer to finish them.
