    I just completed quite a few scrappy log cabin blocks....not perfect, but I like the colors together. What should I do next? Should I extend the top and bottom with more blocks and then add a border?
    What color border/borders would you suggest? I was thinking a thin red border and then a wider border and then maybe smaller log cabin blocks as another border. I'm not sure how big I want to make this because I think it will be tricky to quilt.
    Any advice from people who have done log cabins?

    My first attempt at log cabin blocks

    A red border would pull out the traditional square color of the quilt and I think it would look great. It's a gorgeous quilt and it goes so well with your wall color! :lol:

    I'd probably make it a rectangle rather than a square. But that's just me. Love your blocks. And I'm also admiring your design wall. :)

    Not tricky to quilt if you use an all over design, or quilt each block with a motif that covers the whole block. Anyway, probably make it longer with another row so that it can cover a bed.

    I like the colors, too!!

    I love that quilt! It's beautiful and I agree that a thin red border would be wonderful, followed by another. I think it would look great just like that, but if you want it bigger, then go with the smaller LC blocks if you're so inclined. I see a few said they would make it more rectangular. I, personally, see nothing wrong with it being square, but it depends on how you want to use it. If it's to be a bedcover, you might need to "rectangularize" it.

    Very nice. And, the other posters are right...the blue from the wall color does something for your quilt. It would look good as a border fabric.

    I love it. How about a small bright red border with the bright blue larger all around. I think it will be stunning. Is it going in that room you are in? I also think you might want to add some blocks to the quilt where it needs to be a lot longer. But it is a keeper.

    I suggest a narrow 1" border all around in probably red and then do a piano key border. I've done several log cabins this way and it looks very nice and scrappy.
