Log Cabins the Hexagon Way!
|Hexagon Log Cabin Block (yes, I got the date stamp wrong!)|
The beauty of this tool is that you don't have to cut the exact size strips. The ruler trims them for you after you've sewn an entire round of strips. I decided to make one this week to see if I could do it (what? are you kidding? this ruler is for everyone from beginner to advanced).
I decided to "square it up" so that I can join other blocks without using a y-seam. How did I do that?
