    Here is a baby quilt I made for a friend. It is my first log cabin. My goal with my baby quilts I make for friends is to use up scraps I have lying around. Anyway, I like the way this one turned out. I need suggestions, though. How do you quilt a log cabin? And what is your opinion on how I should quilt this one? Any input is appreciated.

    Very nice job!
    I would either do a meander or stitch in the ditch. I guess you could also
    do a grid if you'd prefer.

    Great Job! :mrgreen:
    I keep wanting to try a log cabin and this appears to be a great way to start! May try this out myself. I agree with desertdebbe - meander or ditch stitch. Thanks for the idea.

    Pretty!! I've stitched in the ditch on the ones I've done--but I've paid a quilter to do a nice overall design.

    Great quilt. I've always quilted in the ditch and it's easy to do by hand, if you've press the seams one way.By machine I doubt it makes as much a difference. I like to stress the design and meandering doesn't as much. Either way, it's looking really nice. I never have enough scraps of one material to carry through out a whole quilt.

    You didnt say if you would hand or machine quilt, but this is how I did mine with hand quilting (if the pictures are clear enough)
