    Like the log cabin pattern, my daughter has choosen that pattern for her grandmother to make her for her wedding quilt when she gets married--not soon. Her grandmother will make it this fall -- in shades of blue -plaine colors no prints, my daughters choice. My mother has only two grandchildern, my son has choosen a double wedding ring in colors of beige and purple-plain and prints, for his grandma to make for his wedding gift-when he gets married.

    yes, the center block is usually red, the meaning is for the heart of the home. At least that is what I was told. Lace

    Dear MN, I love the log cabin pattern, and haven't seen one I don't like either, but I think your daughter chose the easiest pattern for grandmother to make. If grandmother wants a quick and easy way to make a beautiful wedding ring quilt, give her this address and let her order the book and acrylic template. This is what I used and loved it. Book is "Rings That Bind" by Cheryl Phillips of Phillips Fiber Art, Box 173 Fruita, Col. 81521. email is [email protected] or www.phillipsfiberart.com This is an easy way to make a double wedding ring, you make strips and cut with the arc template.

    I think that I will not be having sashing, although a nice rich rusty brown would be a great border. I will be concentrating on the blocks first, and then when they are together, I will think how big I would like a border and what type.

    Nice! I'd love to see the finished quilt also when you complete it. Ironically, I have been building a stash of brown and beige fabric because I want to try a log cabin quilt. I'm even more enthused now.

    Yes, it was. He loved it. The funny thing is that he is loathe to use the quilts that I make him. He is worried about wrecking them. I keep telling him that they are not meant to be pristine forever. I have to practically make him use them.
