    You and I had the same problem today, and the same answer. Only difference is...I don't have NEAR that many strips!
    If you feel like you're special...it's 'cause you are!

    Thanks, I think I get it, I will stop flipping through quilt pattern magazines and cut..... Great way to accomplish something, besides dog earing magazines...
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.

    Love the box filled with strips!!! How cool! Log cabin quilts are my favorite. But I have never tried to make a bed sized quilt. In my dreams I have a green, orange, and brown log cabin quilt on my bed.... maybe one day :-)

    Aren't you the clever one? We all get bored sometime but you didn't just waste time saying Oh, I'm so bored over and over again. You worked your way out of the bored state by cutting lots of strips and now you have the makings of a very colorful log cabin quilt.

    Your strips look great. I don't think I would be able to do that much rotary cutting all at once.
