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
attachment-169237.jpe

cut them into two inch segments (if using two inch strips)
attachment-169238.jpe

Press open
attachment-169239.jpe

Choose next strip and sew these segments to it
attachment-169240.jpe

Cut into segments
attachment-169241.jpe

Press, add next strip
attachment-169242.jpe

To cut into segments line up your ruler on the bottom and the side
attachment-169243.jpe

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:
