Here is how to use the tool for a finished 8" block:
1. Cut a precise 2-1/2" square for the block center.
2. Cut the logs any width as long as they are at least 1-1/2" wide. Logs must be rotary cut on one long edge for a straight cut. The ends and opposite side don't need to be rotary cut, they can be ripped, wavy or angled. They will be trimmed after sewing each round using the Log Cabin Trim Tool. Cut all longs slightly longer and slightly wider than needed if you are cutting them from yardage. You can finger press the logs as you sew each round, but take care to press each round with an iron before trimming with the tool. Look for the bonus pattern next week, after finishing the Sunbonnet Sleuth Mystery.
