Esther is using Sugarcreek by Corey Yoder and the 8" Curvy Log Cabin Ruler for her blocks.
This ruler works the same as the Log Cabin Rulers, the only difference really is that half your strips will be narrow and half will be a wide.
|Blocks rotated so the white is in the center instead of on the outer edge of the block. |
The ruler comes in 3 sizes, 4", 6" and 8" finished. Each ruler has the cutting sizes listed right on the ruler and also comes with printed instructions.
As with the other Log Cabin Blocks you start with a precisely cut center square and work out from there. With the Curvy Ruler it is important that you begin with the wide strips, and the ruler shows you which way to work around the center square. The first round is always the most difficult as you figure out the placement of the strips and after that it is really simple. Just sew, press and trim.
And after 3 rounds of logs you have a super fun block that looks like a lot of work but was really quite easy to make.
Do you have any big plans for the weekend? My new long arm was delivered to my house yesterday so I hope to be able to work on getting that setup, and the exterior of my house could use a wash, so I may have to pull out the pressure washer tomorrow and give the siding and windows a good cleaning.
