    I have had these green and neutral noodles for a while now and knew that I wanted to use them for a log cabin lap quilt for out living room. I had to go and buy a few more greens and neautrals today b/c I did not want to duplicate the same material in the same square. It measures 30X59.5". It is top only. Will work on completing it later this week.

    not a great angle, will post when complete

    I love it and I've never seen the small strips used either. Is that your idea? It's cool!

    Thank you all for the compliments. Yes the small strips are my idea. was going to make a gult just using the thin strips which are 1 1/4 inches but I thought it would take too long and use up all my strips before being the size I wanted so I thought I would mix it up a little bit.

    Well, it is unanimous---everyone loves you wide and narrow strips---and so do I!!! I think you are on to something here. A terrific log cabin variation. This is going to be a stunning quilt. Cannot wait to see it finished.

    Wow--that's a new way to make a log cabin! Just look at all those strips! It's going to be beautiful. The colors are very calming.

    Wow......your log cabin squares are really fascinating~ 53 pieces of fabric in one square is amazing. Will be excited to see when you post the final picture. Thanks for sharing.

    kyia that looks really good. Like photo frames, or something beautiful enough to be hung on the wall instead of sat on upon the couch. ;) Your work is as beautiful as it is precise!

    Thank you all for the kind words. I am liking the look also of the different size strips. I am going to make some log cabin table runnerwith the scraps. I saw one on this site that I liked and will see if I can figure it out at another time.

    Thanks again!

    Wow! What a beautiful throw that will make. Am I seeing it correctly? Two blocks and that's the entire quilt? SWEET!!

    My log cabin blocks are often a bit "wonky" so I paper piece them! Yours is so straight and pretty!

    Lovely!


    PS... What a great use of a pool table!!!
