Log Cabin Rulers

My Favorite Log Cabin Rulers

Marti Michell Video IconIf you want ease, efficiency and accuracy when cutting Log Cabin strips to exact length , look no further! If you have always cut Log Cabin strips to length after sewing them, we hope you will look carefully at the advantages of our new rulers. You may be as surprised as we were to discover how much more quickly—and accurately—blocks can be sewn by first cutting to the exact length.

Block sizes are determined by strip width and how many strips are used to make a block of a desired size. The wider the strip, the fewer strips needed.

Use Log Cabin Rulers to cut strips to exact lengths for blocks like these (sizes given here are cut with Ruler #8037):


The Log Cabin Rulers are marked with both a letter and the actual length in inches for each strip—just the lines you need, so there’s no distraction, no confusion, no unnecessary information. Finished strip widths are 2:1 on both rulers, so you can cut strips from both sides to make Off-center Log Cabin blocks.

Each ruler comes with instructions for cutting strips the correct width and chain piecing blocks. We think you'll be amazed at how much easier it is to piece Log Cabin blocks from exact-size strips, rather than sewing long strips and cutting off the excess (sometimes crookedly).
