It's getting there....log cabin quilt

It takes me a long time to get things going...all I can say is that I have two kids, a dog, cat, and a husband who zap my energy and as much as I love quilting, sometimes the couch or a good book take priority....
It's gone from this...



To this...    All the blocks are complete, and now I have to sew them together into one quilt...it's a baby size.  Each block is 8" .  I'll probably finish it with a white border and a funky binding, and possibly...if I can find it...a soft chenille backing.  

I have no idea who this is for.  If someone has a baby girl, perhaps it will go to her.  Or perhaps I will donate it to someone in the children's stollery who really needs some bright girly cheer...

Will post finished pics as it gets done.

I'm sure I'll get more accomplished this week..  it's been -30c (windchill of -40) the last couple of days, and will be in the next few days.

    Love the colors. Can't wait to see the finished quilt. Do you do the quilting part yourself or do you send it out to have it done?
