    I agree too, tan border, then red & binding in blue. Just a beautiful quilt. Good luck with the fund raiser. St Jude is a wonderful organization for children & their families.

    I think it needs the extra 4 inches. a 2 inch border on the edge is hard to quilt and keep straight and square. beautiful quilt.

    I agree with this idea...tan border, but not too wide, and then finished off with a nice binding. Please post when you're done!
    Bless, O Lord, the works of my hands....

    Tan- tastic! It finishes the top perfectly. I also like the idea of a scrappy binding.

    Seems unanimous everyone love the tan border next to the red. To me that just makes the blue colors more prominent. I'll fight Rebecca for it, just in case it needs a home! LOL It's wonderful.

    I like your idea with the wide tan border and then bind it in a dark blue! It looks great!

    What a gorgeous Log Cabin (one of my favorite). I would also put a tan border on it. Please show us when you have it done. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree - the tan border plus a blue-scrappy binding would really make this EXTRA-special. GREAT JOB on this quilt - love the pop of red as an inner border. PLEASE post when this is finished!
