Just Released!

At last, it is time for the big reveal. This is my new ruler, the 8" Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool. You can see that the strips on two adjacent sides are narrow and the other two sides are wide so you can create the visual illusion of a circle or a diamond. Creative Grids will be introducing the 8" Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool next week at the Quilt Market in Pittsburgh. The Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool and five patterns are available on my website www.jeanannquilts.com or ask for them at your local quilt shop.

I have designed 5 projects to go with the new Curvy Log Cabin. They are available as Cut Loose Patterns on my website or at your local quilt shop. The Hopscotch pattern shows how sets of four blocks sewn together can make a circle or a diamond. The quilt has a total of 24 blocks and took a week to make from start to finish.

Here is the most popular of the patterns alternating light and dark diamond shapes. It is called Carousel.

Two more patterns..... I Love America and Texas Two Step. The heart quilt uses 12 of the 8" Curvy Log Cabin blocks to make the big red heart. The original 8" Log Cabin Trim Toll was used to make the blue and white borders at the top and bottom of the quilt for a finished quilt measurinf 32" x 40". The modern Texas Two Step quilt was made using Courthouse Step blocks in two color groupings and then turned the blocks on end and sidewise to make the quilt design. This one took 2 days to make. The quilt measures 40" x 48". I took the photo at a funky little park in Marietta that has a 10' high plaster boot trimmed out with Texas motifs giving the quilt its name.

And for your table, the Zen Table Runners.....you make 12 blocks, sew them together in sets of four and then arrange them in circles or diamonds.
