I finished the log cabin blocks so this one is ready to sew together. It will be approximately 45" x 63" before borders.
A couple days ago a "noreply comment blogger" (this means you have a Google account but have not enabled your email address) asked if I used a foundation to piece my blocks. I don't because I like to chain piece at least 4 - 6 at a time.
I do it the old fashioned way, just sewing seams to piece the blocks, not following a printed grid. I add 4 strips around the center and then take it to the iron to press. If you have ever worked with batiks you know you can fingernail press the seams as you go. After each round of 4 strips it goes to the ironing board. I have precut my strips to needed lengths for this quilt.
I am still playing with the bag of cutaway strips. I have 5 groups sorted here, narrow 3/4" - 1" strips, strips less than the full width of the fabric, purple strips, and a group I like together.
