This design is also known as a Spiral Log Cabin.
|This wall quilt is 20 inches square|
|Dots, checks and stripes|
Using my colored drawing, I picked the focus fabric. Because this focus fabric would have to serve as the last log, (22" long) and because fat quarters are cut 18" by 22" long, I decided to cut the strips 2" wide and also folded each fat quarter in half along the 22" edge, prior to cutting.

|2" wide strips|
|1st 4 logs are sewn|
|Sewn block is placed on strip|
What I noticed was that, beginning with the 5th log, the log that comprised the same fabric as the new strip always appeared in the top right hand corner.
