I was just thinking about ordering the log cabin ruler too! I can sew any other block and have it come out perfect but a log cabin block frustrates me every time I make one. Thank goodness we have these kind of tools available to us! Happy sewing with your log blocks!


Glad it worked out for you; this will be another winner for sure.

My husband is on Amazon this morning ordering books for me from your latest reviews!

I love those rulers! I have them all!

What is so hard about making a log cabin, heh?? My blocks always seem to be bigger on one side than the other. I try to make them more precise and I end up with the same results! In my head I blame it on an inaccurate 1/4 inch seam. I said that the next time I make a log cabin, I'll order papers...or maybe I need to try the ruler??
Your quilt will be fabulous, Nicole!

What a lucky find! Just in time to get it finished for fall and Halloween! Good luck!

Great quilt design. That Carrie is so-o talented. Your quilt will be darling in those colors, can't wait to see it.


The only problem with a 4" ruler is that the rotary cutter gets mighty close to the hand holding the ruler! But, yes, little pieces get wonky very easily.....I came across Cabin Skein a few days ago and admired it. I still do!

Too funny about this UFO. We all have these, I'm pretty sure. Start something, know what we're doing, put it aside thinking we'll be back to it right away. And then, years later, no recollection of the project at all and certainly not of what it was going to be! Looks like you have a great plan for a "rescue." I look forward to seeing the results.


The 'new' project will be a nice addition to your Halloween collection! I'm guessing that one of these days when it's finished you'll see a pattern that reminds you what you had originally intended to do with that fabric! Have a great week! Stay well!


a 4" Log Cabin block? YOU.ARE.CRAZY. Okay, it is going to look adorable but that is tiny! ;p

Yes, I have found fabric and blocks and wondered what the heck was I making? I have also gone crazy looking for books or patterns that I KNOW I have somewhere only to find them in containers with the fabric pulled and ready to go. Oy. Quilting is such a crazy hobby.

I can totally relate to this kind of "find" but no memory of it!
Aren't we interesting folks?!? LOL


Love the pattern mixing geese and log cabin blocks.


I like the log cabin trim ruler too, especially for small blocks.

Is there a pool for guessing how many days after this cute new project is done until you discover what you had planned? As one of my teachers used to say, "I laugh with you." because I am sure it's just a matter of time until I find one of these.

So glad that I am not the only one who can not remember what I was planning.


Lol! I wonder what it was supposed to be 😳😂😂. Looks like you found a good replacement 👍🏼


I made Cabin Skein and love it! I made it in similar colors to the original because I loved it so much! Can't wait to see your color interpretation of it.
