Well, finally, I'm back to working on my Log Cabin quilt.  No, these aren't sewn together yet, but at least I have the sashing pinned to the blocks and already to sew together.  Well, except for that top left corner where there are 2 really dark browns close together.  That's easy to fix:  I'll just switch and "end for end" it with the panel below it.  
The unfortunate thing, though that's not going to be a quick to fix is that my sash pieces are about 12 1/2 inches and my blocks are 12 inches.  So I guess I'll just have to seam the middle flying geese on each of the 6 geese strips before I sew them to the blocks.  Oh, well.  A bit of a bother now, but worth it in the long run.

And yes, my block of the month is still on the back burner, but since I'm still ahead a couple months, I'm not going to worry about that.
I must, however, complete that second leg warmer pretty soon.  That's where I'm headed now!
