Half-log-cabin Baby quilt

Finished the quilt. And thus my quest for the "perfect" pattern for a baby quilt pattern rolls on.
Last night as I was sewing on the binding, I had a mishap. I was watching that TV show "Lie to Me'" and they just got to the point where they say "We saw that vicious scowl on your face, and because of that, we know that you're the murderer! You're the one who knew the victim was allergic to peanuts, and you slipped some hot peanut butter into his chili!" And instead of the accused saying "Are you nuts? Where's the evidence--I'm calling my lawyer from the law firm of Dewey, Cheatum, and Howe!" He says, "Well, you got me now--I'm the one who did the dirty deed." It reminds me of an old Perry Mason show--where Perry has a woman on the witness stand, and asks her, "On the night of February 30th, did you go to the home of your husband's mistress' boyfriend and stab him to death?" And she starts crying, "Oh, Mr. Mason, you asked me question after question--I can't take it anymore! Yes, I killed the guy. He was ruining all my husband's fun!"
Anyhow, at that pointed point, I stabbed my finger with the point of the needle. Luckily, no Bad Fairy had cast a spell on me, so I didn't fall asleep for a hundred years. I hurried to the bathroom and used a white towel and some peroxide to get the blood spot off of the quilt.

Great job on the quilt. Did you know that your own saliva will get out your own blood? So, in case you prick your finger again you can wet a clean towel and dab the quilt and it should come off. Only works with your own, however, it's an enzyme thing I think.

Ooo, I really like this quilt! What a great way to use up some novelty prints and strips. What size are the squares you started with for these blocks?

I've been watching Lie to Me, too -- it's interesting and fun, but I am always shocked that they really expect us to believe they could catch criminals that way! Love that baby quilt -- it's a great pattern to use a bit novelty print and then fabrics with smaller designs.
