and the quilts I made for our grandsons were planet log cabins.
I really like the precision of the block, once the strips are all cut to size. One hint here, if you are cutting log cabin strips and want them to not stretch when stitching, cut them the length of the fabric and not across with width. There is less stretch to the length and it gives a firmer log cabin - and more accurate. These are the color combinations that I have picked - a light and a dark of each color. I think I'll replace the pinks with ones that have more contrast. I have the beginning strips cuts - 2 1/2" wide - and now to cut the lengths for each block. I am going to hand quilt this quilt - more fun and slow poke - but I love it. What are you working on, slow poke or otherwise?
