I am probably dealing with mostly fat quarters, so I doubt that "cut of a width of the fabric" will work...
Although I do believe that I have a GREAT mix of fabrics from light red, to burgundy. I tried to avoid aggressive pieces that did not feel monochromatic, like bold prints.
I don't have "big" issues with piecing the logs - or with inserting other bits to make the logs big enough...
Any other ideas?
I've cut the 2.5 (some times bigger, because I did not clean the edge as I went - thinking that I can do that later - since I need to press most of them anyway.) inch strips for the red quilt that uses red on whites in addition to the monochromatic reds.
