    I like log cabins-but I will not cut all of my fabric into these strips-nice to have options.

    Just asking here, doesn't the log cabin block use 2 inch strips instead of 2 1/2 inch. Come to think of it you can make your strips any size. Just thinking out loud here. Have a good time sewing.

    Wow, so nice and neat! I just the other day put a bunch of strips I had cut onto a hanger, and hung it in my closet.

    Beautiful fabric. How neat you are. Love it when you can just go pick out your fabric and sew. BrendaK

    Good for you to use your time so wisely. Now you have so many pretty fabrics cut and ready to sew up. You have been so busy lately.

    Good for you! Kudos for making what could have been "down time" into "productive time." Thanks for inspiring and sharing.

    You have done an awesome job. I bet your sewing room is so neat and in order. I need help with my organizational skills in my sewing room. Great job!

    Wow, I can say that your organizational skills are much better than mine. I am intrigued by the variety of colors/patterns you have.

    That is the neatest stacking of strips I have ever seen. I am working on cutting my scraps but it is very slow going because of severe arthritis and inflammation in the wrists. I hope when I get through mine look that neat. I have found a couple of strip quilts that are really nice. I like your fabrics also. Great job.
