    I prefer the center in 1 to either of these versions. It has an elegance about the shape, rather than looking just like another twisted log cabin, IMHO.
    A stunning design, whichever way you look at it.

    K3, that is beautiful!!! WOW!

    Looks really wonderful in purples & purple is the complimentary color to my favorite - yellow. I wish I new more about my EQ - don't seem to be able to do anything with it. I only have 5 & since I dont' know much about it, I'm not spending the money on 7. I think I need more time to work on it, but where am I gonna find the time without quitting my job - then it's no more quilting as no more extra $$$. :?

    Anyway, your design is beautiful. When are you going to start working on it???

    I'm not good at visualizing quilts from a sketch.Log Cabins are well received everywhere.I like your quilt, except for the corners. They remind me of an open jaw.....hey,you asked!
    My opinion is, all your work is outstanding & your modern take on a LC will be beautiful.Can't wait to see it & best of luck at the show.

The colours are vague as well and might change once I get in an LQS but I'm thinking batiks... this would be for the contemporary section of the Festival of Quilts, which asked for a modern take on traditional quilting. Does this fit the bill? I thought to regular piece the LCs, PP the twisted, machine applique and FMQ to be decided... any comments gratefully received and when the design is finalised, I'd like to post progress so you can all nag, ermmm, I mean, ENCOURAGE me to finish it in time for August! :lol:

    That will be one gorgeous quilt, especially in batiks.
    I still prefer the first pattern, the centre just seems more interesting somehow. The second one looks like a cartoon mouth lol. But the 3rd design is lighter in the centre and it does make the quilt seem brighter.

    Any of them will be stunning I'm sure.
    I'll make sure that I give you plenty of "encouragement" to get it done by the deadline :mrgreen:

    I just love that twisted log cabin block. Did you create that particular design yourself, or, is that a block that can be found in a book. If you designed it yourself, I'd buy a copy of that block from you!

    Thats kind of on purpose and funny you should pick up on that! I tried it with the points in and thought it looked a bit predictable - this was gave some tension to the design and made it more interesting, I thought. I really value your comments though, thank you. I'm about to head out with the dog but when I get back, I'll post the other version and see what you think :-D

    The person asking for as tute - this is just fiddling about in EQ with the blocks in the library - hours of twisting and turning to get to this point! Did you mean a tute on how to get the design or how to make the actual quilt?
    Predictible yes! That's me though - LOL I think its beautiful.
