Log cabin blocks can be set in many different ways. My personal favorite is the zig zag/streak 'o' lightening set.
I make lots of charity quilts in bright colors and don't ever get to see the recipients with their quilts. My friend sent me a picture of her daughter all snuggled up in her new quilt. She kept looking at all the different fabrics, she thought Miss Sharon was very nice to put all those different ones in the quilt.
