    I was thinking 1.5 inch strips would be the way to go. The 1 inch strips look nice, but my quilting foot is wider than the 1/2 inch of fabric that isn't stitched on by about 1/16 of an inch. It would slightly hang up making a very small wave in the stitching. It was frustrating for a perfectionist.

    Nicely done!! Perhaps tell hubby that a king-sized quilt made with such small strips would be pretty heavy!

    nice!!!! what are the cutting instructions for the small logs????
    When making a quilt block or quilt there are no mistakes only opportunities to be creative****Think unique instead of flawed if your block or quilt is wonky!!!!

    Love the colors! You can make a bigger quilt, just use bigger logs to get a bigger block.

    its a scale/ proportion. A King size quilt would be great in a little wider strips... other wise it may get very heavy.

    This quilt used 1 inch strips. The one I'm making now calls for 1.5 inch strips. I definitely perfer the 1.5 inch strips!!

    I agree! I'm making a double sized log cabin quilt and am uning 1.5 inch strips - that is a perfect size for a double.

    Yes agreed, if you used bigger strips the quilt would go twice as fast.... I work in a quilt shop, and have access daily to fabric, can't imagine being 100 miles away, and only having access occasionally... Thanks for posting, and your quilt is beautiful. Auntie B.
