Autumn log cabin flimsy finish

I have way more UFO's then I want to admit too!  Luckily I seem to have found the motivation to tackle a few.
I had to find a project to take to sit and sew and stuffed a collection of 2.5" cut log cabin blocks in at the last minute.  Does anyone else do this...take multiple projects and then work on the one you packed "just in case you ran out of work"!  Like that ever happened to me...never, ever!  LOL!
When I opened the project box I found three centres all ready cut, so went ahead and finished making them into blocks.  Then miracles of miracles, that was the perfect number of blocks needed to finish the quilt at a good size 4 x 5 blocks = 48 x 60"!  Even better was the fact I had time to get top sewn together!

So another backing to find and maybe a border?  Not sure if I love this size or not.  Will all depend on whats in the stash. If the stash is found wanting, then it will depend on what suitable yardage I can find in a bargain bin at the nearest quilt shop!  
Happy quilting Sue.
PS I can see one fabric that should have been in the dark pile, but not changing it!


  1. The fabrics all look good to me, no matter what their pile of origin. :)
    This would be a great throw size. I might even border it for a twin size--if you have a place you could use a twin. It looks really warm and inviting--just right for cuddling up on a cool Fall day.

  2. All the colors blend beautifully! I love log cabin quits, and that's one of my favorite arrangements. ---"Love"

  3. Stunning! Log Cabins are always my favourite and your colours are my favourite too.

  4. Lovely! Makes me want to go and start sewing some log cabin blocks.

  5. Hi Sue wow I love your log cabin quilt,hope you can find a bargain for the dashing.

  6. I love the quilt... I must do a log cabin one some day..
