20 Cabins

logs1

logsclose2

Here are the logs + 20 blocks. I had to lay it out in a different room then usual because it's already so big! When I finish the last 24 or so blocks I'm not even going to be able to lay it out... Anyway, the particular room in question does not have nearly as much light as the room where I usually take my pics, so the colors here are a bit off, but you get the idea. I hope to cut the rest of the blocks in another marathon 1 or 2 day rotary cutting session (woo-hoo!) and after that the sewing goes rather fast.

I know that things have been fairly quiet around here. The reason is that I haven't been getting much done!! I'm facing an impending move that will probably be "finally official" within the next couple of days (and no report here till it's final, remember!!) So I'm spending a lot of time getting organized and cleaning house - you know, literally. And in the quilt department I've been basting some things and hand quilting the Trip Around the World quilt that wouldn't die (or wouldn't get finished), but not doing anything terribly photogenic (except the 20 log cabin blocks, of course). Sad to say that, like most bloggers who move, moving will probably send me into a bit of blog hibernation (both reading and writing, sadly), so thanks in advance to those who stick with me!

This is going to be such a neat quilt. Your friend is going to be very lucky to receive it.

The quilt looks great! And please, the last thing you need to worry about when you're moving is keeping up with blogs. Good luck!

Looking great and your blocks are so neat. My log cabins always end up a bit wonky at the edges. We'll all still be your friends after you move - lol ! Good luck..

This quilt is really great. Of all the log cabin quilts I have made I have never done the alternating values on every other round of strips. When I look at antique ones those are the first to grab my attention. Great value choices in your blocks.

I'll be checking you out even if you have a small "vacation" from blogging.

Wow! It looks great. Is this the semi-final arrangement, or are you going to try a few more layouts before it's done?

Good luck with your moving. Such a lot of work. Your choice of color and value for the log cabin is so peaceful. A true accomplishment.
