Just as I caught myself thinking that December was moving along nice and slow.. here we are in the middle, and another TGIFF! party is upon us. I finished the binding on this baby last night as I momentarily set aside a pile of grading to catch up on some netflix TV (re-watching season 2 of Glee, loving every minute!), and figured I might as well finish this one off and get it in the mail before Christmas.
Actually, in the beginning I chain pieced a bunch of centers onto random sized strips and then cut them apart, pressing, trimming, and repeating for the next log. I had no plan for the blocks and no idea how large I wanted to make them. I though I'd just keep going til they looked big enough, then measure to find the size most of them ended up being, and go from there. In the end I trimmed them down to 11" square. Some blocks have 3 rings of logs on all sides, some have only 2 rings on the white sides. Whatever. I was really not worried about anything with this quilt, and let it grow into its own.
I hope it keeps its new family warm..
