Log cabins - first lot of machine quilting

I've done the basics just deciding what else to do

I think some hand quilting is order as I need some sewing to take away with me in a couple of weeks. I'm thinking of mirroring the flowers on the backing fabric in pink. The flower is a little small for the bare squares so I'll have to scael it up to make a template.

The edging is a straight copy from Mrs Moen's fat border that she did on her beautiful heart quilt. The back of this quilt is an antique cream table cloth so I want it to show on the front. I marked its exact centre with marking stitches so the top should match the back (crosses fingers but it looks ok up till now)

I'll post back pics tomorrow.
