    That's what I was thinking and that's why I ordered it.

    Well, I HAVE paper pieced a pineapple (which is very similar to a log cabin, just more pieces), and it was MUCH easier than squaring up after every single dang row. Geez, that sounds like so much extra work! And I never had to rip anything, because I don't sew through the paper.

    I love this ruler! I hated doing Log Cabin blocks until I got it.

    Good luck with your new ruler. Peckish your quilt is beautiful.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    That is an absolutely beautiful quilt. I can certainly see why you paper pieced it. It is stunning.

    Your quilt is gorgeous. I've tried paper piecing and liked my blocks, but it would be much easier not to have to sew thru the paper - how do you do it?

    Beautiful pineapple quilt. I just bought a pineapple quilt book. It wants a "pineapple ruler." The ruler looks very complicated.

    Karen, I ordered this ruler and have to say how much I love it. It has made making the log cabin block a breeze! Just be sure to look at the website and follow the 'oh-so-easy' tutorial. You will master it in moments and love the results. I paid about $15 including shipping for mine and I'd do it again for such great results!
