    I'm working on a my first log cabin quilt and am *amazed* at all the possibilities when laying out the pieced blocks! I can't decide which I like best, and I am certain there are even more layouts available.

    Would you please share a picture of your favorite LC layout? Thanks!

    I have all the blocks sewn for a log cabin top myself. Can't wait to see the responsed to your question. I have arranged and rearranged too many times to count. If you type log cabin into search, you will find quite a few good ideas.

    Mine are just small wall hangings, so you would have a lot more options with a larger quilt.

    This is one of my many UFOs :oops: WIP sounds so much better, Iknow we'll call it a long term WIP :lol: . Is still in blocks but this is how I intend to assemble it. Will have more blocks than this but this is the overall layout.

    WIP = Work In Progress
    UFO = UnFinished Object

    all references to "the F-Word", by the way, are to the work "finished". around here, that's practically a 1st class cussword. :lol:

    PIG = Project In Grocerysack (as in you've bought the stuff but haven't started the project yet.)

    PIMTWI = Project In My Twisted Imagination

    beautiful quilts cynde! shelleyq, those are some great blocks! can't wait to see the f****ed project!

    Thanks for the inspiration ladies. I have sewn my blocks and will post a picture soon....it's similar to shelley's setting, but a *little* different than any I've seen before. I absolutely love it!

    danna, can't wait to see what you come up with, too!

    Thanks Patrice for the info. I wouldn't want to cuss :D . We were down in your neck of the woods first week of May visiting our sister-in-law in Richmond Hill. Fell in love with Savannah. Didn't get a chance to fabric shop, but had an wonderful low country boil dinner!

    Those blocks are really inspirational.... thank you. They are beautiful
    I am working on a charity quilt using a mock log cabin. I am lost at how to place the blocks..... It has a center square and then only 4 strips around the outside, so they can't be set up like ordinaray log cabin blocks. suggestions would be greatly apprecialted. Quilter 1234
