I haven't had time to get another quilt on the machine but I have been piecing.  I finally finished this top.  Now I need to design the applique for it.  It is paper pieced and my own design.  The log cabin block is 2.2" ...yes you read that right!   The center of the quilt is 18".  I will put applique in the outside 4 corners and I made sure to leave room for quilting.  This was a lot of fun and I love the colors.  I dyed most of the fabrics for this one.  I think one is a batik that was the right shade I needed.  The pieces in the blocks were very small.  I think most were 3/4" x 1 - 2".  LOL

Thanks everybody it is a work in progress.  I've decided the green border, 1" currently, is too large and will reduce it to 1/2".  I think I'm on the right track for the applique.  It is very tricky to figure out the right applique to keep it delicate yet pull in the inside star to the outside.  I'll get there.
