"Olives in their happy homes"

This month's zany "olive" journal quilt is based on the "glowing hearth" in the centre of log cabin blocks. Traditionally it's red - the very colour of the pimento that stuffs many an olive.

First step - red squares of various sizes, to be used for foundation piecing of thin strips, somewhat randomly -
Several hours and 99 (count 'em) "logs" later, a layout -
Sewn together, layered, backed, quilted, faced, turned, sewn down - hey presto! -
(Too busy...)
