    I played all Easter morning--just trying all sorts of things. I really like some of these...others I'd have to tweak. Some are ruled out already. But--a few asked me to post these lay outs....so here you go!

    Remember--I'm not paying any attention to flowers/colors yet. :wink: The big sunflowers do seem to stop the flow in places--so I may decide to leave those out.

    I'll repost the first ones so you don't have to hunt them up--but not #3 since it was so close to #1.

    Boy--the sun really makes a difference in the color.

    #2 I like this one, but not the corners, so I could make corners like are in #6. :D

    #10 I can see a need for a few adjustments here--to round off two areas facing the center--see what I mean?

    #11 I just switched the four center blocks for the these one.

    I really like #2, it almost looks like a big flower in the center. #5 is pretty cool too! I havent seen alot of these layouts before.

    #6 reminds me of a pebble dropped in a puddle--well, let's make it a lake. :D :lol:

    Melissa--I've always used El Burns Log Cabin books for lay out options, but the Judy Martin Log Cabin book had many many more. And I've only tried a few.

    Layout #10 was my final choice, but 6,8, and 9 were close. I'm not sure if I could stick to one choice!

    Those are all great, I've never seen some of them. I like #5 too. Is there a link to all these layouts? I have plans for a LC in pastels for spring for my bedroom.

    I love log cabins they are so versitile and simple to make. All of your layouts would make a lovely quilt. I'm glad I don't have to make the decision. I just might have to make one now.

    Yup! Too hard to decide. Looks like you need to make more blocks so you can do them ALL! :lol:

    I really am amazed at how many of them I like. I think number 2 is my favorite of all though.

    I kind of like the sunflowers in there. Even though it breaks things up, it gives it a little umph that is cool.

    You have some beautiful layouts there. I love the colors!!

    I like2,5, and6---#2 is my fav. I think the sunflowers would be nice in #2 if you put a few more blocks with SFs in the bottom of the swirly circle part and in the corners of the quilt top,----and maybe? one in each side--- but maybe leave them out of the 4 center blocks.Clear as mud???


    Whatever you decide, it's going to be a wonderful quilt.Looking forward to seeing the finished project.

    i think your first instincts were right. i like all of the first ones more than any of this batch, but it's hard to tell what they look like in person.

    if you don't have a cat or dog to make the decision for you, borrow one.

    I agree with butterflywing - I think I still prefer the layouts from the first post you did BUT I do like 2 and I think like you say with different corners, it could be great!

    I think you're right about leaving the sunflowers out. Maybe, they're just not proportioned to the other printed flowers. I would leave the other yellow flower print in though. Whatever you decide it will be quite lovely.

    Oh Karla...you do like to make the hard decisions don't you??? I like lots of these and I'm not sure you can really go "wrong". I like the thought of wandering aimlessly through a garden, so I think I like #2.

    Whichever one you decide will be gorgeous and I'm thinking you'll just have to make a second one to try another of those pretty layouts!
