ardis, it is hard to help with a log cabin, because the color choices are pretty personal.    you separate the light and dark fabrics or if you are using two colors, for instance you would separate the yellow and blues.    you start with a center block, i would use 2 1/2 inch square because your strips are tw and 1/2 inches.  then you start your rounds.   the first two logs will be light,  the second two will be dark, the next two will be light, the next two will be dark, continue until you get the size block you want.  

you can start with the dark and do the light second.  if you are doing two colors do the first two logs in one color and the second two in the other color, and continue around.  

   is this what you are asking help with?  you can also just put the logs randomly, but you won't end up with the light/dark layouts to play with.

Ardis, the only log cabin I have done was from Pam & Nicky Lintott's book Jelly Roll Quilts. It had stars in it but I think that was to get enough yardage to make the blocks work. I used up almost ALL of the jelly roll so I think to make one without the stars, you'd have to have TWO of the same jelly rolls. My quilt turned out great or at least in the eyes of my son who received it for Christmas.
