Here you can see all the different 1.5" strips cut and hanging from my giant quilt hoop waiting to be added to a block... there's also a sneak peek of the layout there on that paper beside it. The basic layout is from the book "Log Cabin Quilts Unlimited" although that one is done in black & white.
Here are the 1st quarter of the eventual 64 log cabin blocks as they basically will appear in the finished quilt top... log cabin is really very simple, but it's very time-consuming, since you have to press and square up after each individual strip is added to a block. And each block has 16 strips. I love how all the different reds are "playing" together.
