Why not make this as a MINI or should I say a mini?
and pulled out the four pink colored strips;
there were 3 of one pink print, 2 of the other pinks.
And I sliced them lengthwise into 1 1/4" strips.
Then I took a Bella White 98 jelly roll
and sliced about 10 of those into
Was I CRAZY?
|The jelly strips were sliced lengthwise into 1 1/4"strips. |
The remaining unused colorways (oranges, blues, and greens) in the jelly roll will have a different life.
|The beginnings of the mini log cabin! |
Not very straight but fairly cute.
|I added each new strip of the log cabin all at once|
(in other words, I did not complete one block before starting the next block.)
|I clearly did not use the correct ruler|
during my initial squaring up efforts because the
centers and first 10 or so strips are wonky.
I later used my fav squaring up ruler:
Elisa's Backporch Designs' Square Me Up
I had smashingly excellent and beautifully square blocks!
|The first finished block! 5 1/2" square|
