    Before I get too carried away, what do you folks think?
    Should I continue with the border, that you see on the left or should I just put in another RED (one that is in the heart) and call it good?
    Right now, WITHOUT the border, it's 48x48.
    If I put the Log Cabin Block border all the way around, it would make it 60x60, and then maybe an 8" red around that to make it a total of 76x76 (if my addition is correct, someone correct me if I am wrong).
    I didn't design it to be for a bed OR a lap, I guess it could go for either.
    So, what do ya'll think?
    I'm open to any and all suggestions.
    In the middle of the heart, I am embroidering "My heart belongs to my Sailor". I had it started, but my little girl cat decided she needed a comfy place to sleep, so she curled up on the top while it was embroidering and the lettering didn't come out too well. 3 hours later, I got the embroidery taken out. UGH!
    ( I love my cat, I love my cat, I love my cat)

    I think if you continue the border and then just added the red as binding it would set everything off nicely!!! but all I can tell you for sure is that is one pretty quilt!!!

    I like it with just the red border. It really sets off the heart. It's a really eye-catching quilt :D

    I'm thinking the same, but I'm starting to get bored making the Log Cabin squares.

    I think I'd put the 8 inch red border instead of the log cabin border, but either way, it's wonderful!
