    Borders looks so innocent--but dang--these took me over two hours to put on. I'm too careful I guess. :?

    I couldn't decide on a width for the first one--3" too narrow, 3.5" close, 4" too wide... so I cut 4.25" for a finished 3.75" Good grief. :roll: The second border was easier on me-it's cut at 2". Binding is cut--it'll be the green.

    Measures 84" square and man, this baby is square--the corners matched perfectly when I folded it up.
    Overall, I'm pleased.

    That's got to be one of the most beautiful log cabin quilts I've seen! You did a great job picking the colors and piecing it! :)

    That is beautiful. I'm now inspired to make another log cabin, but this time using those different sized logs to make the curves. Great work!
