    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]

    Are you asking how to attach them? If so, I found 3 sets of instructions that included how to attach them together. Hope this helps.

    Sorry no help as to the procedure, but I can make you feel better about the fact that it is 7 yrs old. I am about to start quilting one of mine that has been waiting for 8 years.
