I finally pulled the blocks out again. Exactly 63. Most log cabin layouts have centered designs which use an even number of blocks. Where was the 64th? However, sixty-three makes a seven-by-nine quilt: off-center but appealing. It just needed a border.
Another year passed until I was ready to piece it. Gwen Marston's liberated variable stars looked like just the ticket to perk up this quilt. They were fun and relaxing to make since you don't worry about the star points. I like this one better than the first one. (Don't tell my son!)

The open spaces in the border gave me room to write the recipients' names, college, graduation year. My favorite is the college yell!
Here are the fabrics I considered for the binding: dark brown, white, tan with dots, dark red, black with white lines, and white on white.
