I use my regular 6x24 inch ruler for most of my rotary cutting. I'm on my second one because I find after cutting so much fabric, the edge is no longer straight. It takes a curve from the rotary cutter wearing at it. Am I doing something wrong when I rotary cut? Like you said, these rulers are pricey.

This easy log cabin quilt block pattern demonstrates how easy it is to sew traditionally designed blocks that finish at 14" square. Jelly rolls are bundled rolls that are formed from pre-cut strips of coordinated fabric. The block illustrated was sewn with retro-look fabrics but strips are available in any color and fabric type you desire. This traditional log cabin design is sewn by adding patches in a clockwise direction around a center square. Patches on one side of the block are lighter than the other, creating a diagonal division in the finished block.
Like I said before, I love this project. Press OPEN the seams. This will help keep your seams straighter. Your finished big piece will be approx. These should be the same size.
