If you used the Potholder Method to construct your quilt 
you are ready to join everything together. I use a Ladder Stitch to
 join my rows. This is a really good tutorial if you need a refresher.

If you decided not to use the potholder method your finished 
quilt will come out looking a little different. Here is what you 
will need to put your quilt together. Use 1" cut strips to join
your rows and top and bottom borders together. Add another
1" strip along the right side of the quilt top and then add the 
Log Cabin side border. Quilt as desired and bind. 

I have some fun and simple Christmas gift giving ideas
planned for you. I will be back with the next issue of
the TQC Journal on October 3rd.
