    My first Log Cabin pattern. Wall hanging top is done, now to sandwich it and quilt it.
    I may put a border or two on it before I quilt it. Any suggestions for color to use?

    It's also the first quilting project that "Suzy Q" (my new baby , sewing machine)worked on. I had started it on my other machine and finished it on Suzy Q. She works GREAT!

    Love the needle threader feature!

    Looks nice! I think a thin red border, wider blue border and red binding would be great!

    Looks great. I am currently working on my first log cabin, however it will be a little bigger and much much scrappier.
    I like katier's idea!

    I agree. A red border would look great and maybe A wider border with black and the cream together and then red binding. You did a wonderful job on this, I really love the colors too.

    That turned out great. I think a red border would be great. I see Suzy Q is working out great.

    I would go with the lighter color border then a red one in a larger strip.. its very pretty. I have yet to do a log cabin.. did you find it hard? I love your colors. Thanks for showing this one off!

    It wasn't as hard as you may think. Just need to pay attention to the placement of light/dark strips. My first attempt had them going the wrong direction and I had to start over. (Luckily only had three strips done on 4 blocks. If you do them with the running stitching (one right after the other) it goes pretty fast.

    I have always loved the black and white log cabins. Yours is very nice. My favorites I have seen at quilt shows are the borders made with a vining applique around them. It reminds me of the homes of long ago with the vines climbing them and breaks up the linear/ridgid feel a log cabin has to it.
