Here's a scrappy log cabin made by Pat in Anchorage for Guatemala Bound. Pat used the 1/4 (or 1/2?) log cabin block with strips on only two sides of the "center" square. This is a different layout that creates an intriguing design. To see the beginnings of this quilt, click here.
Below is a photo of a log cabin bed quilt I made for friends last Christmas. The colors are close to the same value, so the design is subtle. I'm really drawn to log cabin quilts. I don't seem to tire of this classic.
