Monday Meandering and OMG for Sept.

At least, I hope I'm not too late for OMG for September.  I haven't participated in OMG since last year, probably July.  I'm ready to make the plunge.  And, boy howdy, do I have a big project to get working on again. 

 My Goal for September, 2020 is 

to trim all the rebuilt log cabin blocks


to sew them into a top.

This is 35 blocks. I have at least 25 more blocks finished and a couple that need a few rounds. This is going to be a twin size quilt that will be used in my "quilt" bedroom. It used to be used as a bedroom yearly when my quilting buddies would come for the in-house retreat.  But now I'm piling up finished quilts in it! 

Hum, I noticed I do not have all the blocks going the correct way above.  Below are about 25 more blocks. I am hoping to get to 63 blocks in a 7 x 9 setting. I hope I don't have to make any more blocks!  This quilt has been in the works for YEARS!  I can't even tell you how long I've been making these blocks. (Although I will admit it's probably been a year or two since I last work on it.) I can say most of the blocks I've made have been "rebuilt" but they all need to be trimmed up.  There's the two parts of my September one monthly goal. *Yikes, it's already a week into this month! 
Are you impressed, the front cutting table is still pretty well cleared off?  I am! (I'll have to see what is to the right of the yellow mug, which by the way, I've had since HIGH SCHOOL.) 

If you like the idea of this block I got my directions from Elaine Adair Pieces. Click on the Tutorial - Scrappy Rebuilt Log Cabin link under her heading. She gives good directions on the size of strips to use and how to rebuild the resulting log cabin blocks.  

My big news over the past week was getting a new computer to run Ruthie's robotics.  I've used it once with a fairly small quilt and was very happy with it.  I loaded a bigger one on today and will get most of it quilting on it tomorrow.  

Take some time to check out these linky parties.  I'm linking up with my normal ones: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Design Wall Monday and Elm Street Quilts September OMG Goal.  I'm looking forward to seeing what's going on in studios across the Internet. 

Happy Quilting All, Bonnie
