    BattleAxe, The picture you posted of the furrows log cabin sampler looks like it's the Marti Mitchell sampler I did a couple of years ago. The pattern utilized her acrylic templates, but I just used the paper templates that were on the pattern sheet for each block. I didn't set the sampler blocks the way you found on Pinterest-- I just made those same blocks. :-) My LQS was offering the sampler as a BOM using Kansas Troubles fabrics, and their completed example was set that way though. Small world. :-)

    The Log Cabin Sampler that Battle Axe likes is the pattern Rambling Rose Meets Jamestown by Marti Mitchell http://www.frommarti.com/showRRMJT.shtml

    Marcia, that fabric line is really nice. I can't wait to see your quilt set together. I know it will be beautiful, however you set it together.

Size:  430.3 KBHere is the Autumn Evenings with sashing. Now I am fighting the setting and corner blocks. Since I put 2 inches of purple sashing, I need to make these blocks two or more inches bigger. Thought there was a book in my library on setting things on point. Of course I had to make 18 blocks instead of the 13 that Debbie had us do. The good news is that I feel I have made a dent in my left over Fresh Lilacs fabric bin. For the extra blocks I scrounged some ruined things from other quilts and just remade them.

    Beautiful quilt top, Battle Axe! I usually put my setting triangles on at either end of each row. Then when I sew the rows, they are there and it only took straight seaming, no corner fitting (Y seams). That works easiest for me with on point settings.

    Generally if you press the seam toward the darker fabric it is helpful. Reduce bulk in the seams by cutting 'dog ears' and 'twirling' intersections that are at right angles.

    I was snooping around and saw your beautiful quilt. You do know that Fons and Porter have a ruler that does these angles so easily. My mom bought it for me a few years ago and it works wonderfully for this. Also, even though you have the 2" sashing, you still cut for the 12" block.
