    Gotta love quilts that make you catch your breath when you see them. This is definitely one of those! How did you do the lacy parts? I love this!

    Wow! When I first look I don't think "log cabin" but upon further inspection--yup--there it is. So much to look at here! :D I love the move of colors from light to dark--really makes the design sing. What is that fabric that makes it look lacy? Very unique design. I'm not a pink person either, so I can't wait to see it in your next color choices.

    Thank you all for the compliments. I really appreciate them. To answer a few questions -

    I would be glad to share the pattern, but I don't have one. The design is a log cabin built around a diamond shape. My diamonds have a finished height of 2.25". They are 60 degrees at the pointy ends. The strips on one side are 1" and the strips on the other side are .5". All the log cabin blocks are the same size. The 4 corners are just made to square off the big hexagon. It would be a difficult pattern to write up, but not very difficult to sew.

    Several people mentioned a lacy look. I think that is because one of the pink fabrics had some white in it that is much lighter than the white in the other fabrics. I've discovered that when you mix different shades of white you can get a serendipitous result. Or it can be terrible, take your pick.

    I'm thinking about purple, green, and yellow/gold for the next quilt with this design, maybe more scrappy but with those colors.

    Here are some close-ups.
