Marti Michell Log Cabin Ruler ½" & 1"

Marti Michell Log Cabin Ruler

My Favourite Log Cabin
by Marti Michell
For widths ½" or 1" Finished

Two things contribute to making "square" Log Cabin blocks, and our Log Cabin rulers serve perfectly:

1. Cutting strips on lengthwise grain, so there is little to no stretch of the fabric as you sew.

2. Cutting strips to exact length, so every strip fits, every time.

All of our Log Cabin Rulers are used in the same way. Each ruler cuts 2 strip widths with a ratio of 2:1. The strip widths and strip lengths vary from ruler to ruler.

BONUS! The 2:1 ratio means you can also use these rulers to cut pieces for "curved" Log Cabin blocks, where one side of the block is composed of strips that are X-wide and the other side of the block has strips twice that wide. The 2:1 ratio gives a great "curved" look. When many blocks are sewn together, the gentle steps appear to make a curved line across the surface of the quilt. Curved Log Cabin details are in Marti's book Log Cabin ABCs.
