    Log cabin ruler

    I just purchased this ruler and it is awesome. I always had issues with my log cabin blocks, not anymore. Watch the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGOugElr7ds Had to share

    I bought one of those as well, but haven't started a log cabin yet because I want to clear some backlogged ufo's first. Glad to hear it works!

    Enjoy your ruler. Ijust never felt the need what with somewhat limited funds and so many rulers and acryllic templates that I want to have.

    That looks like a great ruler to have. I'm thinking I will get one as well. I like that you can use any width strips/scraps because they get trimmed after. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Wish I had thought of that one, great idea. My log cabin blocks always seem to come out wonky so I am definitely going to check out that ruler. Thanks.

    Where can you purchase the Log Cabin ruler? It would seem to save a lot of mistakes.

    Even stopping to press before trimming on the various steps, it appears to be much faster and accurate then trimming each strip. Thanks for sharing this new ruler.

    Oh that looks like it'd be a great ruler to have. It'd keep those squares squared up.

    Back in the seventies (the brown fabric era) you weren't considered a quilter until you'd completed a Log Cabin Quilt. This ruler might get me there yet!

    Thanks for the tip! I'm putting it on my list of tools to add to my arsenal.

    I liked the ruler but was concerned that she did not close her rotary cutter after she trimmed the square..... a very large no..no.. in our world!

    That seem to be a simple yet helpful tool to have. I'd buy it. I want the Twister tool also now.

    I saw Jean at Quilt Market with the quilts she made using the ruler. I really liked her demo and the ruler.

    Do you know if they have a smaller size? I do a lot of smaller projects.

    I don't think so, but I'm not sure
