8227 | 1/2 and 1 inch Log Cabin Ruler
You will be contacted regarding actual shipping cost.
Many of our customers asked for a Log Cabin Ruler for 1/2- and 1-inch finished strip widths, so we have added a fourth ruler to the Log Cabin series. Two things contribute to making "square" Log Cabin blocks, and our Log Cabin rulers serve perfectly:
Cutting strips on lengthwise grain, so there is little to no stretch of the fabric as you sew.
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.
They are PERFECT for: • Rotary cutters–Cut multiple layers at one time • Shapes and sizes–Specific-size 1/8-inch thick acrylic pieces. No guessing which line to use on a ruler • 1/4-inch seam allowances already added • Laser cut accuracy on every piece • Corners–Not just blunt but revolutionary double blunt corners engineered for perfect alignment • Permanent identification system • Companion tools for strip cutting and piecing techniques.
Our template sets for rotary cutting feature special engineered corners that automatically reduce bulk. This revolutionary corner concept means cutting pieces that match perfectly–
• No pinning or guessing required • No more "dog ears" ensnared by the throat plate • No shadowing through light fabrics • No going back after sewing to trim excess bulk ~ it's trimmed away at the same time the pieces are cut.• The thick acrylic templates mean you can rotary-cut multiple layers of fabric at one time.
