Wonky Log Cabin Top Is Done

I'm trying to move along with my Q2 FAL projects.  Putting these blocks together was super simple and then putting the top together was yet another super simple step.  So here we are:

 
I'm rather fond of this scrappy spring-y version of this pattern. 
 
As I have mentioned before, I find the quilting step to be a real impediment to my completion of my work.  I found it far more interesting to put this top together rather than to quilt a smaller, older project.  My justification:  I don't have the skill set to quilt this large a quilt, so I should get it ready to go to the long arm quilter for finishing.  Then...I'll...quilt...the...smaller...string quilt top...
 
Hmmmm.  Well, it's what I did, so I might as well get it off to Dee for quilting. 
 
And, fodder for my next blog:  a group of us are going to my house in the Sierra Foothills for a mini-retreat tomorrow.  This is the last mini-retreat I will have in this house because I sold it and it will close in the middle of May.  I live in the Bay Area and have had this vacation home since 2002.  With my family in Reno, it seemed natural to sell this house and focus my free time in Reno. (I recently purchased a home down the street from my kids and grandkids, so I will slowly get use to having a vacation home in Reno!)
 
Photos of the weekend will follow.
 
Good luck with all the pollen in the air.  Stay healthy!
 
Aaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household.

    2. We should plan on getting together for a canning or sewing party. I can host, since you haven't seen the new place yet :)
