What a wonderful and cherished quilt this will be! What size are your blocks?

More than a decade ago, our guild made a Log Cabin raffle quilt so had a sew-in to get the blocks made. I'd been quilting for about 5 years then and had made two Log Cabin quilts so thought I knew all there was to know about that block. Nope! The quilter who was supervising those of us sewing strips on, said when four strips are on, square up, every round, every block, so the quilt will be easy to put together. Using our rulers we did just that. No special ruler needed tho it looks like the Log Cabin Trim Tool would make it much easier!

It's going to be beautiful! Looking forward to the tips post - I purchased one of these trim tools but haven't used it yet!


Love the block it's great! Truth be told I've never made a Log Cabin quilt it's just too boring for me. Perhaps I should make one this year?

Looks great, Nicole. Today seems like the morning of coincidences. I ordered Zen Chic fabric to make my son a grey, white and orange log cabin quilt, but in an irregular log cabin type block. I am going to start it when I am done my 1930 Farmer's Wife. Happy sewing!

Well that's a clever ruler. Where do you find these things Nicole? It is so important to keep this particular block square and this would really make it fast! Looking forward to seeing the quilt. Have a great day.



beautiful! love the idea of that ruler, too!


I feel like a ruler hoarder already…now you go & tempt me with this little must-have! Guess we know what I'll be ordering in the morning! haha!!

I am your outer strip going to be narrower? It looks like you may have cut off your 1/4" seam allowance. I ask because I am planning to do a low volume log cabin quilt with all the lights being in script fabric.
