What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try to cut 1" selvage strips. This is not always possible but the pattern is quite forgiving and you can just add more strips until the log-cabin block is the right size. If saving selvage edges remember to include a seam allowance when cutting them off the end of the fabric.

Thank you. When you trim your selvages remember to cut them 1/4" wider than the selvage.
