Queen sized Log Cabin -- ready to quilt

I started with some Moda charm squares from the Recess line and the Happy Camper line, plus a Happy Camper Honey bun. Then I started adding in a wide array of strips from my stash. The first photo is the blocks with just 2 "logs" -- it felt sparse to me, so I added another round.

Second photo is the queen sized pieced top, ready to be quilted. The arrangement is one that I've seen called crosses and losses, with the predominately red blocks forming crosses, and the yellow blocks creating a box. None of that was planned particularly -- I just played around with the blocks on my design wall until they seemed pretty balanced.

Now to figure out how to quilt it. I'll probably do a loose stipple, but I often get bored with that, and burst into random feathers and flowery things, which I'm not sure will be the best on this quilt. I don't like doing straight line quilting on such a big quilt. Quandry . . .

Do you have a favorite quilting treatment for log cabin blocks? Care to share?

I love how you've rearranged the blocks. It's amazing how much a change that made! :thumbup: I have no clue on the quilting design, but I'm sure it'll be great! Thank you for showing us your quilt.

When I saw the first pic, I said, "um, no too plain needs something".

Then I saw the second pic and what a difference. Nice job.
