    Re: Make a "Rick Rack" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    I like this one but, again, I think she could have picked some nicer looking fabric because really she has a whole wide world of fabric right there for the picking, for free lol! Shermur I like your block alot better than Jenny's!!

      With all of the ways you can place log cabin blocks, I think I would choose a different layout
      .

        You are right, I printed it out then watched the video again. I paused it when necessary and made notes on my print out. I also wrote the date on it so if I decide to use the pattern I can easily find the video again.

          I would have liked her to lay out the blocks in a few different ways, to show us the various ways it could look. I apparently can't make that switch in my brain. After all, I'm from Missouri. You have to "show me." But I like the overall look of the quilt.

            Check out Donna Jordan's layouts with log cabin quilts, to give you some ideas of how different layout would work.

                So, Joy, I do have a printer and when I clicked on the pdf it only gave me the yardage and materials I would need. No pattern or measurements. Am I not seeing something . I didn't bother to print it because I didn't see any information there.

More recently, I've been using the Snip-it tool to get a picture of the block diagram, which I print out on a Word doc. You can make the block a larger size & put measurements & notes on that page, too. If I hadn't done that with the Antique Lace block, I never would have got the pieces properly placed. Do you have a printer? Do you have the Snip-it tool? It's a free download.

                  Terry ~ For one block using jelly roll strips, pair a colored/print strip with a background strip and cut 6- 2 1/2" squares first to make the five HST and the 2 solid squares for the 4 patch. Then cut one 4.5, 6.5, & 8.5" segment from those strips.
                  In the pic below, the strips are 2.5" wide and there are 5 on each side.
                  [(Width of strip - 1/2") x 5] + 1/2" = size of unfinished block
                  [(2.5 - 1/2") x 5] + 1/2" = (2 x 5) + 1/2" = 10.5" unfinished block.
                  The length of the strip segments is determined by the width of the strip in order to have a square block.

                    Thank you so much. This is exactly what I wanted in writing. I will work on this soon with all those left over jelly roll strips that are still in the box.

                      I'm cutting it out now. I made a trial block, and had a heck of a time getting the HST facing in the correct position, but I'm thinking if I make another block it will be easier. Can't wait to get sewing on it.
                      Thanks to all for your ideas.
