WIP Wednesday - Week 23. More Log Cabins

Well once again I can't post a pict or any news about this weeks WIP as its for the latest EB Sewing Girls swap.... Nearly finished, well in time to make the due date of the 29th! Yahh! One to cross off my list when its posted.

So in the meantime, I have discovered this amazing site, Craftster, I'm hooked! Has the byline of Loves to Make Stuff, Hates Potpourri! Yep, thats me! The Quilting section is just WOW! I posted a thread up asking for opinions on my log cabin blocks as I am just so undecided on which layout! 5 pages of opinions later..... I'll have to make a sub tally! But they gave me some more ideas of layouts. So I have just laid all the blocks out on Grace's bed and had a play with some more possibilities!

I like this one the best! See the pinwheel pattern? And I am fond of pinwheels at the moment!

Strippey one. Hmmm.....

One purple diamond and two purple half tiangles...

One red diamond and two red half tiangles...

This is the first log cabin quilt I have made and I am a bit gobsmacked with all the possibilities!

Welcome to craftster :0) I still love these blocks - wish I could help you decide on the layout, but I love them all! I'm actually having the same problem with some blocks right now :-P But mine aren't NEARLY as nice as yours!

Well, I am loving your log cabin. And I cannot believe it is your first. It looks really great!

I still love the red triangles -- whether you do them whole or with the 1/2s. The nice thing about the log cabin layouts -- you can always make another one with yet another layout!

Last time you asked for opinions I really liked the red diamonds meeting in the middle, but I must say, I DO like this new pinwheel effect. The pinwheels suit Gracie's personality. Love MV from MG xxx
