Stripping again

I cut strips for the Kaffe/Liza log cabin quilt the last 2 evenings. I think I have almost enough cut. I had cut some 2" strips a couple years ago for some other project and had them all together in a bag.
I went through the bag and pulled one strip of each of a bunch more to add into the mix on the dark side of the log cabins.

I mailed my daughter's quilt off to her for her birthday. I sent it by Express Mail so she should get it before noon today. It feels good to be early for a birthday for a change.

Hi, I love your blog/quilts, fantastic. I have been wanting to ask you if I just make long strip sets, cut them to say...6.5". Then, cut them on the diagnal from upper left to lower right and THEN upper right to lower left? I HAVE to make one! I just love the way you use your scraps. Thankyou for any help you have and for keeping this great blog. Amie, Nashville

Great post today. Just thrilling colorful fabrics to say the least.

Your daughter will treasure her quilt forever. Did she know you have been working on it or a surprise ?

love the color selection. I'll be eager to see how it comes together- may be an inspiration for me to do another KF
sally in st. paul- where it is that brown season of the year- leaves are gone, no snow, sky is gray, daylight time is over- good time to stay inside and sew

Hi Wanda,
I just know that quilt is going to be a knockout, both close-up and from afar. It's amazing how you can mix and match Kaffe fabrics and they magically go together.

Your daughter's quilt is amazing ~ I can see why you are so happy with the way it turned out! And I don't mind all the words in that post, I enjoyed reading it enormously.

Now, this new log cabin project - WOW ... I totally understand why you commented each block seemed "ugly" to you until you started putting the blocks together ... I think that has been much of my 'hang up' issue with KF fabrics ... I get stuck before I get far enough and, never having completed a full KF quilt top, I lose faith in my judgment.

Your skills are AMAZING!
