WIP Wednesday Week 21 - Log Cabin Layouts




Well I finished late yesterday afternoon all my log cabin blocks. Here they are spread out on Grace's bed. Now is the hard part of choosing which layout! I am really amazed how much impact the centre diamond of the top two stands out. Grace loves them, she wanted to get under them and lie down, I had to tell her, not till they are sewn together.

So which one do you like best??

LOVE those blocks! I like option 1 best.

Kylie said...

I like the second one Helen - maybe you should ask Grace what she thinks she would like to sleep under - is it for her?

Belinda said...

I like No.2 best. Followed by No.1.
I can't believe how quickly you work!!!

Natalie said...

Initially I liked the 2nd option, but after looking a bit longer I actually prefer the 1st one - think the colours blend a little bit better.

Like Kyle said, which one does Grace like? That'd be interesting which one she'd pick.

Suz said...

I like them all! But I'm leaning towards the 1st option, especially if it's to go in that room. It looks great against that paint colour.

Cass said...

I like 1 or 2. I too would ask Grace. I think in one the purple stands out more and in the other the red so I guess it might depend which was her favourite colour. If it was Charlotte it would be purple.

They all have such great impact, but I have to say I like 1 and 2 best. Which more, I don't really know. Not much help.

I like the first one too, followed by the second. They look great!

That is wonderful! I personally like the 1st option, because the warm colors really stand out.

Marie said...

I vote for option 1. They look great.

Hedgehog said...

I think I like option 2 best - but they are all beautiful!

Libby said...

Gorgeous blocks! I agree w/ pretty much everyone else that I like the first two layouts, but not sure which I prefer. I love your work, it is so alive!

Helen said...

Thanks girls! I like 1 the best a little bit more. It is to go against the walls in the pict which are very pink so I think the pink/red in the middle might work better? It has been fun sewing this one. :)

Samantha said...

I like either 1 or 3 best- but those blocks will be stunning no matter how laid out!

I like #1 best because of the purple walls -- this way the reds really stand out -- and provide a nice contrast.

Helen in the UK said...

I like the top picture where the reds make the diamonds, but then red is my favourite colour!!

Austy's Mum said...

The first one! The diamonds stand out for me more on that layout.
