think of each block as a BIG half-square triangle (BHST). look for a block patter you like and use your BHSTs to make BIG "Blocks".

many people will use them to make a star in the center, then one or more frames around the star until all the blocks are used up.

Hopefully, the quilting left a seam allowance. If not, you can add sashings or unsew. I learned the old Georgia Bonesteel way of lap quilting - I'm sure there are others

flip top and back over and trim batting
sew front seams together
pat batting back in place, and sew the back seam by hand.

try www.quilterscache.com[url]

they show a lot of layouts for a 'logs in logs that might be helpful.

what they call 'logs in logs' looks like log cabins to me. what do i know?[url]
