Big Blue Logs – February 2012 UFO Challenge

Quilt # 77


One more UFO completed!
Big Blue Logs
This was my #1 in the UFO Challenge 2012 for February. A challenge issued by Judy Laquidara at Patchwork Times. Click the orange 2012 UFO Challenge button at right for more info.

This was my challenge:



1 – Blue Log Cabin

This has been around a long, long time and I just want to get it done. It is king size and it will be long arm quilted. I have to prepare a back, have it quilted, label and bind it. Measures 106” x 106”.
1/4 of a log cabin
I'm so happy it's done and out of the closet where it has been since probably the mid-nineties.



It is made up of 36 – 14” blocks, each “log” is finished at 2”. The navy blue that looks like lattice is actually the last 2 strips on the dark side of the block.

not lattice
There are 3 borders, 1”, 3½” and 5½”.

The long arm quilting was done by Marnie Mascioli from Calico Cat.

And here's a photo showing the label, binding and quilting.
