Log Cabin Court House Steps quilt

Good morning to you all. Another UFO? Yes. What a long time this quilt was in-the-making. Finally, over a year and a half later, pictured above is a quilt that I made to use-up some fabric stash scraps. This pattern is the traditional Log Cabin, the Court House Steps version. It is a lap quilt, but ended up being quite large at 44"X44" after enlarging the pattern. This pattern was part of a QAL (Scraps N' Orphans) from Pam of: Heartspun Quilts Blog back in 2013. I love the mix of fabric colors and patterns. Do you like the Log Cabin quilt patterns? This quilt top was begun not long after I began learning to quilt. Machine quilting is meandering style. The binding is slate blue, and the backing is solid beige color cotton. 'Want to see two close-up views? Follow the link below my signature.

Here are two close-up views of the Log Cabin Court House Steps quilt. Wow, the choice of homespun for two of the borders was kinda difficult to sew, as it wanted to ravel so much. Still, 'happy with the outcome. This was also an attempt at making my own binding. 'Got it a bit too wide, but decided to just go with it anyway. Have you ever made a Court House Steps quilt, and/or made your own binding?
