Finally!  I started this in June for AYOS.  It started out as the Leap Year Schnibble but I got tired of making the 36 patch blocks after 13.  So I thought I would try my hand at a log cabin block-and it measured the same size!  So off I went to make 15 of each.  This is American Jane's Happy Campers line.  I used a honey bun and 2 yards of the brown basket weave.  I'm not sure how much of the landscape fabric I used for the border.  I'm happy to have finished this one!

Border tryout

Hmmmmmmm.  Wondering about this border.  I think I will need to bind this quilt in red.

an evening's work

Here is the finished body of the Leap Year plus Log Cabins quilt.

Below it is shown with a sample of the border fabric.  I wanted to get that done tonight too but I'm too tired to do it properly.

slowly, slowly . . .

I started this quilt in June-the Leap Year Schnibble.  The 36 sq blocks are from that pattern.  I got tired of making those so started the log cabin ones.  I finally finished the 30 blocks that I need yesterday.  After I get them all sewn together I will put on a border of some Happy Campers fabric-my favorite line from American Jane.  The blocks are all made from a Happy Camper Honeybun. I think this quilt will finish somewhere around 55x64.  We'll see!
