    DH s log cabin

    I started this quilt in november 2011 and i am now fixing to put the borders on there will be 5 borders in graduating widths from 2.5 to 6.5. picture one is the original planned quilt (to be a suprise for Christmas 11) then I got so tired of do it the way I was taught I got some one else to show me another way and have finished the inside. the border will be mitered ( I hope) I have my strips cut and ready to stitch together. this was all a first for me. After I missed the Christmas deadline I finished the squares and told him what I had in mind and told him if he wanted to do another design have at it. the second pic is the design he made. and the third one is of the borders I am using,

    It's going to be wonderful! I think I would save the red for the binding for that little pop of colour at the edge. It will be great when finished no matter what you decide to do.

    the blue pattern is messy looking to me. Love the way the red one is set together.
