    finished the diamond log cabin top

    just thought you would like to see how my diamond log cabin (dunsters pattern) turned out, I'm not quilt finished yet, desiding whether to square it up with pale grey or just leave it, suggestion would be appreciated

    It is very beautiful as it is, but I think the gray would be pretty also. Sorry I'm not much help! LOL

    Same here! Got it when she first started selling it and here it sits. Shame on me! Yours is beautiful, maybe I'll get up the courage to try!

    That is really beautiful. I was given the pattern in a swap as a challenge. I keep getting it out and then chicken out. Maybe this summer I will get the courage to start. : )
    Happy Quilting.

    It's beautiful! It would depend on what I wanted to use it for if I added the triangles to square it up. If I wanted it for my bed and I have a solid matching colour bedspread, I might leave it the way it is and center it on the bed. If I wanted it for conpetition, I might leave it the way it is because it looks so perfect now. If I wanted it for my main bed quilt I would probably squared the edges.

    Carol, you did a fantastic job! I am so happy when I see one of these quilts finished. I think that pale grey would look great on the corners, but if you like the hexagon shape then leave it as it is.

    To those looking for the pattern - pm me and I'll give you the details.

    If you square it up with the grey, I'll bet this will almost look 3D on the bed. WOW.

    I think gray borders would be nice. You did a wonderful job. I've got to get my pattern out and get on it too. I'd forgotten how beautiful is. Thanks for sharing!!
