Log Cabin Quilt

Today I put the final border on my Log Cabin Quilt.  I've been working on it for about 3 years when we are in our 5th Wheel.  This has been my take-along project.  The blocks are tiny 3" squares with 17 pieces in each block.  There are 502 of these blocks! When I do the math on this, it adds up to 8534 pieces. 

I really enjoy looking at the fabrics because they remind me of the many friends who have given me little pieces of fabric to put into it. Only the inside border was made from yardage.  Everything else was made from pieces that were intended to be thrown away.  This photo below gives a good perspective of how small the pieces are in comparison to the quarter.
