Log Cabin Quilt
To make the strips, fold the width of your fabric in half and half again. This makes it easier to cut. The selvedge should be at the top and bottom of your fabric. The selvedge is the finished edges of the fabric. Using your self healing mat, rotary cutter and ruler cut 2 1/2 inches (6.5cm) strips in your chosen fabric. The length will be 44 inches (112cm) when cut. You will need 20 strips for the book shown or usually 40 for other Jelly Roll books on the market.

My strips cut in different designs of the collection
With my strips cut, I'm ready to plan my design. This can sometimes take a while. I usually lay them out on the floor and have a play around. It can take a few goes until you're happy with it. I'm looking forward to updating you with my design. Please get in touch if you have a questions - Helen -
