    Awe, thank you so much Henry, and thank you Cathie, yes the plot does thicken, here is the beginnings of a poem that will go with it, the first verse, i haven't thought of the other verses yet:

    I am a rose that has no stem
    But i am not alone
    Many leaves surround, and care for me
    And protect me from life's storms

    Now, who is the rose? :)

    Anyways, now my machine is messing up again, so i hope i can get through this, will tell more later :) :) :)

    Oh dear, i can really use an opinion now. This will be a wallhanging, the corner squares will be white, and the rest of the centre will be white. I've seen log cabins done to look like stars, and this is my problem. I was hoping to do a star, but, with the roses in the cabins, do the roses detract from the star pattern so that the star is not noticeable, or is the star noticeable enough, and with a star, the roses get turned inward, and im hesitating if they dont look good that way, in the second photo i can make it like a diamond, not quite what i wanted, but a diamond is nice too, but the diamond looks better maybe, goes with centre diamond, and roses are turned outward, and if i did the diamond shape, maybe i would need to make the centre background floral? What does the star look like, and which one is better?

    Thanks Renee. Yes, the more i look at it, even though i wanted a star, i think the roses turned inward looks kinda scrunchy, the diamond one just kind of flows and radiates out. I wonder if i do number two, if i should do the centre background white or floral, maybe floral so the diamond shape doesnt get broke up

    Barb, That is absolutely breath-taking!!!! I have never seen this log cabin variation, but I will not forget it now. Your fabric choices are to die for too--perfect!!!!! I KNOW you will get this finished!!!!

    I am going to make it unanimous for number 2. And use the floral fabric in the center. Stunning!!!!
