I came up with this plan and if I use it, I can make 3 QOVs from the 24 blocks I have here.
Changing the center a bit . . I think I like this version better.
My friend, Judy, says it’s not too ugly so I’m going with this plan! And, I could use up a whole bunch of red fabric! 🙂
LOL – I saw this topic and thought ”wow, they are gonna build a log cabin now too?!!!” hehe.
Aw, no log cabin, it will be a great quilt though 🙂

If it turns out ugly, I will take the blame. 😉
I like both versions. You should do a version 3 and make one of each. Get busy!!! 🙂
I think I might like the first layout better, but that may be due to “first impression.” My thought was that it looks like a Navajo blanket.
I sure do like your framed rectangles! (First round outside log cabins) It’s sort of a “Judy theme.”
I think those will be very nice QOV.
I like both of the layouts. I would gladly take the quilt off your hands when you are finish making it. 🙂
Nice layout. That’s a LOT of sewing to use 12 orphan blocks.

Great plans, both of them! I just posted to our Guild, and those here might be interested, QOV has a documentary airing on PBS with lots of quilters we know. They are showing 3 people making quilts. It is sponsored in part by Martingale. They sent the e-mail with the info. I have made several but really didn’t realize it was a local ( Anacortes, WA) Mom who started it!! OK local as in 50 or so miles away…that is local to a truck driver :). I digress…This is about the show and making the quilts…Just FYI…Vickie
very nice! I think both will look great but I like the second layout just a bit more. 🙂
I thought sure the chickens were getting a log cabin !!!!

What a great way to use your log cabin blocks. I like BOTH of the designs.
You are a very kind soul, Judy.
how would it look if the second quilt had the bar going across like the first?
You never seize to amaze me with your designs and your generosity! Whatever you end up doing with be just great!
Vicki W says
I like that. Have you tried it with 9 patches or 16 patches in that checkerboard border instead of the 25 patch block? It seems a little small in comparison to the center and the middle pieced border….and it would be less work!

I, too, thought you were building a LOG CABIN – hopefully for your quilter friends to come stay in when they visit. LOL.
LOVE THE QUILTS, JUDY!

I like TWO, TOO.
Do you think you could send some of your brain power this way please? You *see* things so beautifully!! Love the use of those blocks!!
Love the quilt pattern, I do love the log cabins unfortunately due to my move I haven’t had time to set up my sewing room and machine. Soon I hope 🙁
The first one looks like a kind of oriental rug with the “medallion” in the center.
Bev in MI says
I like both versions, but I would probably opt for nine or 16 patch sections in the border too. I actually spent way too much time on this yesterday looking for the 24 blocks. This morning I went back and saw you’re making three quilts. Counting problem solved.
Well, if you will make three quilts you can make one of one design and two of the other. Or you can come up with a third variation. Whatever you choose, I think it’s a terrific way to use the blocks!

I really like them both!
