    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)

    Press open

    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:

    Just as I was looking for some inspiration for my next quilt, along came this tute. What a beautiful quilt that is. I've never tried a log cabin before, but, you certainly make is seem do-able, even for me. Thank you.

    That is gorgeous fabric!!! Where did you get it? Thank you so much for the tut, I'm so new to quilting I have water dripping from behind my ears and I'm just itching to try a log cabin block. I just bought a new sewing machine and am still learning to use it. Thanks again for the tut.

    Thank you for the tute. It makes it so much easier seeing it done rather than reading.
