    certainly depends on whom you may be giving the quilt. 2 laps would be awesome and you can share the wealth. beautiful colors

    I'd google log cabin images and see all the wonderful ways they can be arranged and go with the arrangement I like best. I love the "outside the box" arrangement myself, but there are lots of neat possibilites.

    I'd do queen size so you can enjoy all the blocks together -- those are lovely!

    I would also make them into a queen sized quilt. These are wonderful blocks and they are gonna be great set into a quilt top.

    I love to re-arrange Log Cabin blocks! So many neat patterns to choose from and I would decide on the size to complete my pattern. Have fun!

    I would make the queen size because I tend to think bed quilts are more useful, but what the others said about looking at different layouts really makes more sense. Who knows what layout you will find out there that will inspire you?

    Whatever you decide, they will be great. Very pretty fabric.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    It really depends on what works for you. Why 61? I would think 63, so you would have the option of going 7x9

    I would say a bed size, twin, double or queen. Those blocks are really wonderful, they have to stay together.

    I laughed out loud to this response...so cute...and I agree with her; lap quilts - one for you and one for someone else.

    Love the B & W!
    If it will go to a LAQ, I'd go for the gusto, but if it's to be quilted on a DSM I'd either QAYG or stick with a smaller size than queen. I'm just finishing up the binding on a floral log cabin that measures 86" X 108". I did it all on my DSM and I tell you, I should have stuck with my original plan to QAYG! lol
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I just love black and white quilts in any design. The red just sets it off.
