    I think it is going to look Great, remember the log cabing does not look wright until you put it all togeather. There are 50 ways you can put the block togeather when they are done so keep on working on it you are doing great. In reference to the solid black, either put it in the same place on the block or delete it altogeather. The eye goes to the solid black and you do not see the whole block.

    I think they will be stunning! You will have great fun trying to decide on a setting for these blocks - I hope you will post photos when done!

    I am working on my 2nd B&W log cabin and I love them. The first one I arranged into a 4 point star. My son loved it and took it home. The one I'm doing now, I arranged into the Broken Star pattern. Both are so pretty. I don't know how to post pic's, but I know yours will be great. Your squares look so much like mine.

    I think you are doing good! When I look at your blocks and squint, a couple of the fabrics appear to be "mediums", the small floral print in particular. The log cabin block often has higher contrast between the light side and the dark side than what you have. Mediums can be used to good effect. If you want stronger contrast I would add some lighter whites and darker darks to the fabrics you are using but maybe you want low contrast logs.
