I am tickled pink to announce that the log cabin blocks are already assembled into a quilt top. I have gone ahead and added the first border because the edges of the quilt need to be stabilized before the paper-removal begins.
As you can see, the paper removal process is going to take time and be a bit messy. However, it is a great t.v. project, as well as a good thing to putz along on when the kids are doing their bookwork for school.
Once the paper is all removed, I'll toss the whole thing in the dryer with a damp wash cloth to freshen and remove any accumulated dust and paper debris before pressing and adding the final borders.
Then I'll schedule some time at my church to use their tables to spread out and pin-baste this behemoth, in preparation for quilting. I haven't quite settled on a quilting pattern yet. I may have to do some experimenting on a couple spare blocks before settling on a pattern.
