Another New Project

Our guild's BOM is a black/white and red log cabin . I love log cabins but I never seem to get a nice straight seam :( So I decided to make a paper piecing pattern in EQ yesterday. I made 4 for the lotto of blocks for Friday's meeting. But I need to switch out a couple of the wall hangings from Christmas to winter. Or something different. So I have 8 made and 8 more in progress....I started playing with layouts. We have this one:

Or maybe this way :

I really need to get them all finished to get the "full effect"

Christmas is all packed away except the Nativity and 2 wall hangings. Every year it seems like more and more work. I need to dig out some snowman patterns and make at least one of those soon too......

I love your colors Kim. My Mom, 80 years young now, and still does alot of quilting, told me once she only paper pieces log cabins-only way to be accurate.

Hello Kim,
Your quilt will be lovely when finished. Personally I prefer the second design. I am a total beginner and being already quilt bug bitten by such wonderful work shown.
I also love the pic of your Moose.

Funny, I love your log cabins, I just don't care to do them. LOL
I like the first one best.
You know, there are other ways to lay them out....
