Log cabin quilt design
I am looking for recommendations of what edge to edge design to use, with a long arm, on a king size log cabin quilt. Thank you!

I just finished a King LC and I had the LA'er quilt flowers with leaves and vines. Was so happy with it! I'll see if I can find it in pictures. It was just a couple of weeks ago.

Here it is. I don't know how well you can see the quilting but it's really nice.

I usually try and find an idea from the fabrics if the person who owns the quilt doesn't have idea. Most log cabins are very busy and any all over will give really good texture to the quilt. If there are leaves in the fabric some leaf panto will work. Florals area easy too. If for a man, I try swirls or boxes or linear designs.

I would use almost any design that is swirly, or cloud looking or maybe even waves. If you search for Pantographs for long arms and go to some of the sites, the options are endless. Because there are so many seams in a log cabin, I prefer a pattern that doesn't leave a lot of open space.....3 or more inches with no quilting in it. It's amazing how much stress is put on a quilt seam when you are moving it or pulling it up in the bed. That's where I find my seams have broken. These are just a couple of websites that I like. There are more.


I wouldn't do anything that had straight lines in it. It's amazing how you can make your piecing look terrible by trying to do ruler lines. Nice, gentle, not too far apart, but not too close either. I do like the idea of following a theme of some fabrics in the quilt.
