Welcome to the Quilting Board!
The barn raising gets my vote. How wonderful your first quilt will go to your father-what an honor for both of you!
top right or bottom left are my faves
Whatever you choose, it will be lovely and a feeling of accomplishment to get it finished.
That's the joy/curse of the log cabin block-so many choices. But, each choice makes a wonderful top. Keep auditioning your layouts and one will finally sing to you. Thanks for sharing.
The bad news is - time flies.
The good news is - you're the pilot!
I like the first. I have seen the others but I have not seen that layout before. That is why I like it.
top right for me too - but whatever you decide on - it will be great ! -you can always number them - place the numbers on folded paper in a bowl and have someone else pick one - and there is the lay out - not what about a border ?? think about a thin red border with black on either side - that worked for me !! (my daughter's guest bedroom) GOOD LUCK
I like the numberone and the number five layouts for a guy
Toss them on the bed, straighten them out and sew em together. It will be great no matter what you do
My first choice is the star, bottom left or the top row, middle one.
