    I am getting ready to hand quilt a Log Cabin--standard pattern--15" blocks. Need suggestions on how to quilt it.
    Just send me a pm-Marta. Thanks!

    I would do echo quilting on it, 1/4 inch from the seams.

    I am hand quilting a log cabin and I am doing a large heart in each center I am not sure yet how I will Finnish it maybe a smaller one between on the corners. Depending on the design you could do stars, hearts, squares, flowers, anything that fits the theme.
