    I think the hardest part of making a log cabin is deciding what layout to use once all those blocks are put together! When I had finished the blocks for DH's log cabin, he was away on a trip. I photographed a bunch of layouts, then posted them to facebook so he could see them and choose his favorite.

    Anyone else have any other layouts? :)

    So many possibilities!

    one of your later photos was my suggestion.

    :) I like the one you picked, too.

    (There are over 1,000 possible layouts of 4 half square patches)

    Fortunately we both came to the same conclusion, regarding a favorite- we both liked the layout in the third from the bottom the best, because it had a lot of movement and we liked the secondary designs. Still like a lot of the other layouts a lot, too, though! :)

    They are all beautiful! I think I agree though, the third from the bottom is the most striking.

    I think the first one is neat. I don't remember seeing that one. I think the log cabin block is beautiful and so easy!

    I really like the fist layout. It's not one you see all the time.

    Very nice work and I love, love, love your colors. I'm sure DH will love it too!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Everyone is lovely!
    There are SO many log cabin layouts. I applaud you for taking the time to layout all of them!! It's a lot of work to flip them around to try all the variations.

    Do you have them sewn together for us to see now? Please? and Thanks!

    It's such a tough decision. Been there, done that! He (and you) picked a good one! Your colors are really nice.

    Each block is the same in size and design but they are all scrappy so each block is different. They do each have a red center, then half the strips on one side are light fabrics, and the other half are dark.

    Oh, my word, it took forever! I got such a workout- up, down, up, down, over and over, lol.

    I do have them all sewn together now, it's actually my avatar photo. I posted it in this link when I'd finished sewing it all together-- http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-134899-1.htm

    Painiacs ... as noted this one, the strips are not all in the same place, as it's a scrappy. Some log cabins are matchy-matchy. What I mean by this is that fabrics are chosen, and then each block will be identical.

    I like that one, too. But it would be a hard choice. Maybe one of the other designs for you next log cabin? :)
