I made the first test block for the Target Log Cabin from Kaffe's book (shown in this post). I am using Philip Jacobs and Martha Negley fabric too in this quilt.
I found the sheet of paper with my calculations on it and I was correct in figuring 3 strips for one fabric (dark in this block) and 2 strips of the other. The 2 strips at the bottom of the photo are leftover and are supposed to be used in the stripped sashing.
When I went out to fill the bird feeders I found my red weigela bush in bloom.
I cut this bush down to about 18" in the fall of 2009. I'll have to trim it again this year.
