Tipsy Log Cabin - to be quilted, this is only the quilt top. I love it, what do you think?

Rolling Log Cabin
I am sewing everyday making quilts for my new Jelly Roll book. It will be released in late fall. It is so much fun figuring out the math (did I really say that?) to use the strips to best advantage rather than just cutting them up to sew traditional quilt blocks. Here is one I just finished. It is a "wonky" log cabin. Wonky being a new word for crazy in quilt making. A hundred years ago this would have been called a Crazy Log Cabin Quilt. I am calling the quilt Tipsy Log Cabin. I used a Moda jelly roll called "Twirl" and a fabric called Ziggy Candy by Timeless Treasures for the borders. And, oops, I broke my rule not to ever do another mitered corner on borders.
