    Some of you asked how I did this. Pictures aren't the best. But you will get the idea.
    I cut my strips 2 inches wide. You can use whatever size you want, just be consistant.

    Pick the two strips you want for the foundation square.

    Sew those two strips together

    cut them into two inch segments (if using two inch strips)

    Choose next strip and sew these segments to it

    Cut into segments

    Press, add next strip

    To cut into segments line up your ruler on the bottom and the side

    continue adding strips until you get the block the size you want.

    I like that idea! I have so many strips left from making my uneven log cabin, I might just use them to make a 'quick' log cabin with, thanks for the tute :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
