Tiny Tuesday - Quarter Log Cabin

What I have for you today isn't so much a block as it is a block starter.  Tomorrow is the day that we will deliver Anna to school in Sarasota.  I've just finished off my sub plans and my students are not at all happy that I'm going to be gone AGAIN already.
Right now, the house is officially all torn apart!  I broke down the quilting frame after finishing a quilt on Sunday.  It is temporarily stashed in Ryan's room.  He didn't exactly clear out when he left and there are lots of reminders of his presence all over the floor of his room. Today was the first day of classes at the University of Florida.  He wasn't exactly impressed with the fundamentals of programming, but it is required and they would not take any of his AP credits to replace it.  Anna was also required to take fundamentals of biology despite her AP credits, but she survived it well enough and was able to move on to more interesting materials soon enough.
The most exciting news though is that I will have official sewing space again very soon.  I think this weekend will be a time for deep down organization and settling in. It will be such a treat to be able to have a dedicated studio again -- its been a while!

Cutting directions

Collect together 1 inch strips of white and bright blue.  To avoid duplication you will need 5 whites and 4 blues.  You will cut these strips into rectangles of regularly increasing lengths.

White 1 = 1 inch
Blue 1 = 1 inch and 1.5 inches
White 2 = 1.5 inches and 2 inches
Blue 2 = 2 inches and 2.5 inches
White 3 = 2.5 and 3 inches
Blue 3 = 3 inches and 3.5 inches
White 4 = 3.5 inches and 4 inches
Blue 4 = 4 inches and 4.5 inches
White 5 = 4.5 inches and 5 inches

Start with the short strips and gradually build your way out.  I'll be back as soon as I can set up my sewing room with some real life photos to illustrate.
