Log Cabin and EZ's inspirational Force

I did debate on whether or not this was an original enough variation on EZ's tomten as published in Knitting Workshop. I decided that all the work I did in figuring out the sizing for such a wide range allowed me to have a small claim on this version.

This jacket uses Log Cabin blocks as the
foundation to build a tomten jacket, a
sweater formula originally created by Elizabeth
Zimmerman. This project flatters many figures
and uses fun techniques that rely on on very little
finishing for the completed garment.

To Fit Bust Sizes: 30 (32, 34, 38, 40, 42, 44,
46, 48, 50 , 52, 54)

Gauge: 4sts/in in garter st.

For ¾ length sleeves: 8 (8, 8, 9, 9, 10, 10, 11,
11, 12, 12, 13, 13) balls of Noro Silk Garden,
110 yds (100 m) ea
For full length sleeves: 9 (9, 9, 10, 10, 11, 11,
13, 13, 14, 14, 15, 15) balls of Noro Silk Garden,
110 yds (100 m) ea
5 stitch holders (or waste yarn), 16” and 24”
US8 circular needle (or size needle to achieve
gauge), US8 straight needle (optional), stitch
markers: 1 ring and 6 locking, 6 buttons

Anne, I'm so excited to get started on this right away and was wondering if I can do the 4 Log Cabin motifs before class starts on the 19th?
If so, how far do I knit for ONE motif?
Up to "Bottom Section 3, DO CUT A TAIL"?
