Marathon Quilter

My pictures are a tad fuzzy, but progress is moving ahead on this project at warp speed. Before my kiddos awoke, I did 8 more of the 10" log squares using different blues than the ones I did yesterday. At nap time (and I use that term very loosely with the 4 year old wild thing), I assembled the center medallion. My vision was a little different, but what I did will manage OK. With different color fabrics, the intertwined look of the star would have been better.
Here's the overall layout. I have 4 log blocks still to make, and I am contemplating doing another 8 to make it bigger. I may choose to do a 4" border instead. This pattern requires even numbers of blocks to look right, and another 2 rows is really larger than I want to make it. Ideas?
The download from my camera is acting funny today, so maybe tomorrow I can show a closer up picture of the pieces. Today I haven't the patience to figure out the problem.

You are on fire Margaret! It's looking good. I'd go for a big fat border. It's a pretty busy quilt, so could do with another resting place in addition to the star. Looking forward to seeing where you go with this one...and all those UFOs LOL!
