    Hi, I am getting really frustrated with the "log cabin" variation quilt I am making. I have the top all done and was ready to sandwich and quilt.
    My daughter stopped by the other night and said it looks like I have "swasticas" all over it!!!! She suggested I applique something in the center of the 4 patch block to hide that look. Here are two photos....
    First one is the block consisting of 4 log cabin blocks.
    Second photo I have laid the applique on the center (I don't really like this look) Now what do I do?? I kinda saw the "swastica" too but thought after I did the quilting it wouldn't be so obvious. Please help! :(

    My DH just told me to just go ahead and quilt it as it is.... He said it will be fine. I think that is what I am going to do... stop driving myself crazy over this! If I don't like it when it's done, I will donate it - someone needy will be happy to have it.
    It was supposed to be a wedding gift for my niece next summer, so I still have plenty of time to make another one for her.
    I don't think I have ever struggled with ANY quilt as much as I am with this one! :?

    I don't see that when I look at your quilt. I think it is very nice. If you like it that way, then quilt it as it. You have done a beautiful job. :)

    If you were to put the blocks together with the lite fabric in the center instead of the dark the swastikas would not show. 8-)

    Did you know originally the "swastika" was a religious symbol?? The Nazi's adopted it and perverted it, so in my opinion you are just giving it back a little class!!

    I think it is beautiful. The butterfly can go in random spots just to throw you eyes off but I like them in the small green squares. You did a nice job with this one. :)

    Yes Hitler preverted most everything, as most all true evil will.

    I wouldn't have thought of them either but you brought it up. Most people wouldn't notice unless you tell them.
