We had so much fun...the lesson was on the proper way to make the Log Cabin block. Now, my first thought was, I made those blocks, they are easy. But, I learned real quick, with the proper ruler, they are sooo much easier.
This ruler does all the calculating for you. It not only will make the proper width you want but gives you the measurements for each strip.
There were only 6 of us so you know we got a lot covered . We each got a book and ruler. The book was "Log Cabin ABC's" by Marti Mitchell.
It is a great book with lots of ideas, patterns, and complete easy to read instructions.
Linda (our instructor) started by going over the first part of the book. Where the log Cabin block originated and how the center block is usually red (representing fire or heat inside your cabin), then picking fabrics.
Next, we all picked our fabrics and after being showed how to use the ruler, we cut the pieces out:

After we cut them out, we sewed them together. So many ways to place them:
