    Log Cabin! First time :-)

    Boy talk about time consuming, but I like it. Not sure which pattern I like more.

    Well, at least you've narrowed it down to two. There are so many layouts to boggle the mind ;-) Your blocks look clean and crisp.

    Is this for a table runner, or will there be more blocks for a larger piece?

    If a table runner I kinda like the 2nd one only slightly better than the first. Not sure why.

    If it is for a larger piece and more blocks will come, you might want to wait until you've got more blocks to sample other layouts - there are SOOO many possibilities with Log Cabin!!

    Nice blocks!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    One thing about your blocks is that you can do lots more of them and try several different layouts and get a larger view of how it will look and then choose. I love log cabin and all the possibilities there are!

    I love your blocks, the fabric is beautiful. I think I like #2 a little better than #1, I don't think you can miss with a log cabin block.

    I like them all. I guess it depends on how big it will be.

    And only about a 100 more possible layouts to go!
    (of course, dependent on the size you are planning.)

    HAVE FUN!!!

    I love the pattern and the way you arranged the fabrics. I don't recall ever seeing just 2 fabrics used for the each block but I love how it came out. I just made the log cabin blocks with my DSIL for her quilt and it is very laborious.

    I, too, like the second better. However, you may want to wait to sew them together until you have more blocks done. Unless it's going to be a table runner. Love log cabin. Saw one on this board once where it was only two colors and it started as a swirl in the middle and continued out. (One of the middle four was reversed). Log cabin quilts are full of variety just waiting to happen!!! Nice job!
    Go forth and sew!

    How do you want to quilt it? I like the first if I was going to do a madalion in the white space if not I like the other. I want to do one, soon. Beautiful.

    Wait till you have more blocks for more play! That said, I have about 12 log cabin blocks I started with the QAYG method and in the end, I really hated all of them so they are stuffed in a drawer. Yours are nice and neat.

    Love the blocks, it's hard to choose, I'd wait until I had more blocks done to play with. They are lovely.

    Very nice blocks. I like the traditional design #1, especially in the burgundy. They are all nice though.
