Log Cabin # 2

Here's my progress so far on my second Log Cabin blanket:



This one is for my son. It is done in colors to match his room. I'm not too sure I'm totally happy with the way that it is turning out yet. I don't think the colors mesh together quite the way I wanted. Maybe I have too many colors going on at once? As it gets bigger and there are more repeats of the colors I am liking it more - so we'll see. :)

This is in Elann Sonata again.

I know some people have been keeping the stitches live rather than casting off and picking up. I haven't done that because I really like the "put together" effect you get when you bind off and pick up stitches. I think it mimics the feel of a quilted Log Cabin better.

The LC seems to go well with the leather sofa. Looking good so far! ;o)

I love your log cabin. Believe me, the colors mesy Very well. Keep going. I like the bound off edge better, too. It seems more "log cabiny".
