I like barn raising
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
While I like the star, I agree with yonnika as to letting him decide. I've found in talking things over with my daughters, their input on the design has greatly added to their appreciation of the resulting quilt.
i vote for the star.

Definitly the star, it will look awesome and very manly.
Life is like a coin; you can spend it anyway you want, but you can only spend it once.
I like the star best, but maybe you should get your dad's opinion, unless it's going to be a surprise.
so many quilts to make, so little time.
Thanks guys! I'm torn between the star and maybe the diagonal. I don't know. I'll go up and rearrange them one more time. Here's the issue... I wanted to back it with the little red squares that are in the middle of each log cabin. I got the fabric so long ago I can't find it anywhere. I don't even know who makes it. Think it will matter if I back it and bind it with fabric that is similar but completely unrelated?
Without a doubt, the 2nd row, middle...but then its not going to be my quilt. Take into consideration your dad, what type of personality he has and how his home is. If he is a man who likes order, I'd go for the 1st row, far right or 2nd row, middle. If he's artistic or likes things mixed up a bit, I'd go for the 1st row, middle, or the 2nd row, left. Please show us when you finish -- can't wait to see it done!
