    If your batting doesn't require close quilting, why not design a scene? Have a log cabin for the dark side of the block and a wandering path with a tree for the light side of the block. It would be a nice relief from Stitch in the Ditch and meandering which is usually done on log cabin.

    something that will highlight the diagional contrast. maybe a feather down the length of each diagional?

    This is a beautiful quilt. Log cabin is one of my favorites.

    often log-cabins are quilted with wide- meandering, swoops, a flowing all over design- you could do feathers down the lightside, there are tons of (options) it often helps to look through books, magazines, web galleries at other quilts for inspiration...and it depends on if you want (traditional- what is often done) or something unique. it is beautiful!

    Such a pretty quilt....with the design flowing in one direction, I would find a quilting pattern that flows as well....feathers are very pretty, but overdone (JMHO).....maybe a design like a panto would work

    Maybe some beautiful flowing feathers following the white paths. One type of feather in one path and another style of feather in the next white path. Alternate the to different feathers, or however many different feathers you'd like. I just love your top beautiful job.

    I've considered alternating a cable border design diagonally across each length of light and dark.

    Since it's set in the furrow pattern, I think I'd do a vine with leaves down the strips. (plants growing in the furrows?) Maybe the curving lines of ferns down the strips instead of feathers. Long rows of flowing feathers would be pretty also.
