Log Cabin layout

   I'm feeling a bit indecisive on this one.   I won't say how many layouts I tried..... here are 2 I liked.

Here's the block.....a quarter log cabin.

Two layouts for the quilt.
   Offset barn raising layout.  Distinct rounds of light and dark areas.

   An "X' variation.  This one reminds me of a formal garden maze.

   I tried a zig zag which left me dizzy.  I moved things around to get the flying geese pattern, which did not make me happy.  I created a star, yet it wasn't what I wanted. Finally,  these are the two that I narrowed it down to.....viewing the photos on the computer helps in the decision making.

 Oops....I hit publish before I was finished!  And now I forgot what I was going to add.    Oh, yes.....I plan a border for this one  and the barn raising one will probably work out the best for what I envision.  If and when I get that far.  I need to finish up the string project....I got past all that sashing mess.  It needs a good press and pinning.  With the end of the month quickly approaching, I probably won't get it finished.  But it is next on the agenda.  Happy stitching.

Offset barn raising settings have really caught my eye lately, so that is the one that is speaking to me! : )

I like the barn raising, it's soothing, the other one has my eyes traveling all over the place, LOL.

I agree with the herd - oops, ladies - the barn raising is much more eye appealing.

I like the offset barn raising too. Log cabin is such a great block! Too many choices.

I'll cast my personal preference with the barn raising as well. I like where it takes my eye around the quilt. Very lovely!!! Enjoy your perfectly wonderful day!

I like the X - it's unusual. It is your quilt, and your vision, so share it with us.
