    Red and White Log Cabin

    I had a red and white jelly roll and red and white yardage that I have been collecting. This is what have been trying to work on for a few weeks and finally had time yesterday to finish the blocks. I hope to get the blocks together this afternoon. I think I will do a small black on black border, add a red/white border and bind with the white/red matching fabric. What do you think?

    I just love the red and white fields and furrows setting you have made of the log cabin. It is going to be such a nice quilt to cozy under.

    That is beautiful, the colors you picked for the border would be nice. What I do when I my top done I lay it out next to the borders I want to use to see how it would look before I cut it. But whatever you decide it would still look beautiful. Those colors seems to go together well. Thanks for sharing.

    You could never go wrong with black in the border. Nice frame for a beautiful quilt. Great!

    The small black border sounds wonderful. It will make the whole quilt sing!

    The red and white looks lacy and pretty, will look great with the borders you describe.

    Love red and white quilts! I remember seeing a posting on this board of a woman's personal collection on show of just red and white quilts. It was amazing. I like how the red on white fabrics almost take on a pink tone. I think your border ideas will perfectly frame a beautiful quilt. Great job and layout. Thanks for sharing.

    I love the red & white combination! I think the black/black narrow border would really make it stand out like a matted photo effect, but I agree with Sewfine's comment about laying it all out to see how it goes before cutting. Can't wait to see it finished!
