    Karla--How big are these blocks and how big of a quilt are you making? Or are you making more than one quilt with them?? I think they are all beautiful and I can tell you are having a blast making them.

    absolutely gorgeous!! It always amazes me how different types of fabric can make a pattern look so different.

    Wow--thank you for all your kind words. :D :oops:

    The pattern came from a magazine--forgot the title, but it focused on log cabins. It's old. If you're familiar with log cabins, all you need to know is to end with the lights and to cut the darks 1.5" and the lights 1". Most patterns have the darks finish the square.

    The blocks are about 7.75". I don't know how big this quilt will be yet--but I want enough there to really see the design--whatever it is.

    Karla, I REALLY like this layout (and your fabric choices!) on this Irish Chain. One of our charity quilt makers made one (non-charity quilt) using this pattern, but each 'circle' was a different color group of fabrics (purple circle, blue circle, red circle, etc) . Even unquilted, it was one of the most popular tops in our little annual quilt show.

    Wow, Karla, that is going to be beautiful! I LOVE those fabrics!

    As for layouts, there was a link on here a while ago from pittsburg Pam with some unusual log cabing layouts, hang on, I think I saved it...

    scroll down to the bottom for setting ideas! :D

    Kx--thanks for that link. :D I love some of those lay outs. Thankfully, I do have several log cabin books with designs... but the tricky part is my squares are tiny compared to those, (2.5" strips vs. 1-1.5" ones) and mine end with lights--and most end with darks. It changes the design some. I think my Judy Martin book has a ton more options than the E Burns log cabin in a day one... I'll have to dig it out soon.

    Last night I worked on the Black and White Splash... too many projects! Nah. :wink:

    Oh--not quite big enough to share, Terri--but it's pretty cool. :wink: It was amazing how things fit together. I'm very excited about it...

    It's rare I get so much quilting time on a school day... what a treat!!

    Off to the barn--there's snow out there with 20-30 mph winds:shock: ... but I have a doc's appt this morning, so I can dawdle a bit...

    I'm off topic ... but the horses are snuggled in their stalls with warm water, ample hay, and soft straw. It's a cozy place out there. :wink: I'll check them once more before I head to school--clean up and top off waters. Dad is coming at noon to peek too.... but no babies eminent--thank goodness. Let this cold pass first.

    Terri--this doc appt is for my foot--not the other stuff.... :?
