I found that focusing on one color group at a time worked well. Also, chain piecing is the only way to make log cabin blocks. I've done them before one or two at a time for bee blocks and it felt like they took forever, but when I chain pieced and had everything laid out, it certainly felt A LOT faster! (I used this tutorial over at Connecting Threads for the cutting instrucitons.)
I ended up doing most of this in the 45 minutes I have each morning between dropping #2 off at seminary, then #3 off to school. I spent my lazy Sunday afternoons cutting the pieces and laying them out, then when I got a moment during the week, I'd either sew or press as needed.
All laid out. Someday I'll get a design wall, but for now, I get the floor of my sewing area.
I used my bear paw blocks as leaders and enders, so I got a few more of those done, too =)
