    I hadn't thought of doing a log cabin with different widths. That quilt is spectacular, Bitty!

    Does anyone know where I could find a pattern for this quilt? Even basic dimensions would help -- block size, center square size, strip widths.

    It looks like an artist drew it with a brush on canvas. It is excellent. A true work of art. Very pretty.

    I have always used 1 1/2" strips because it gives more movement to your quilt. but I have never tried different sizes in the same block---are the darks cut 1 2/2" and the
    lights cut 2" ? that quilt sings ! and it is singing my song ! you always get the neatest,most precise log cabin blocks by cutting each log to size---but that is a horrible job when you start cutting boxes of strips you have carefully stacked through the years. I quickly decided to do the strip method and just be really careful with the sewing. I don't think I have ever saw an ugly log cabin !

    you were probably thinking "I ever saw" and forgot that you'd written a "have."
