Cutting Log Cabin Strips

I like the way this Log Cabin block came out so much, that I'm making some more.  

First, I had an ironing board disaster.  The metal part of my ironing board was so old that it actually snapped in half.  I was pretty surprised - I didn't know that could happen.  My husband offered to weld it, but I opted to just get a new one.  The new one has a bright blue and white chevron pattern on the cover (see above).  That is quite a change from my old stained and torn muslin cover.  I wonder how long it will look this pretty.

I had just enough time to cut strips for four more blocks.  I sorted them by size and value into little zip lock baggies. This should help to keep them from getting mixed up.  I have a few other projects in the works, so it could be a while before I find time to sew the blocks. 

Here's one of the fabrics, cut into a strip.  Isn't it an interesting pattern?  These fabrics all came from a jelly roll, so they coordinate nicely.  I hope to finish writing the tutorial for this block and post it soon.

Have you sewn any Log Cabin quilts?  Leave a comment below.

Have a wonderful day!
