Recess quilt--check

The entire time I was working on this quilt, it was reminding me of my best friend. I think it was the ruler fabric that did it. Regardless, I decided that I will give it to her next time that I'm in town. I thought about waiting until Christmas, but I'd rather give her a present for no reason because everyone likes a present for no reason, right?

I quilted and bound it in a few hours yesterday. It's so fun & easy to quilt a small quilt. This one is only 36x60" so it just flew by. I took the time the baste, baste, baste and I got no crinkles on the back for the first time ever. I don't think I said one bad word--it's a miracle!

Your color-cooridination really makes this quilt. Would you quickly explain how you made the blocks? Did you make quarter log cabins or full and then cut them into quarters? Thank you!
