Log Cabin Quilt Block Settings

This weekend turned out to be perfect for sewing.  On Saturday morning, Mr. Main Street cleaned the filter on the furnace in the basement.  After cleaning, the furnace refused to come back on.  Our call to the repair guy has not yet been returned.  It is now 48 degrees on the first floor of our house.  Fortunately, the second floor is served by a second furnace, located in the attic.  So I spent most of my weekend on the second floor, where the sewing room is located. 

I made 10 more blocks then tried the blocks out in other log cabin settings.  My original setting of concentric rings is called Barn Raising (I think).

 
I tried diagonal lines.  I think this setting is called Streaks of Lightening.

 
 
I don't know the name of this setting.  I've seen it before with regular log cabin blocks and courthouse steps blocks.  I don't care for it so much with the curved log cabin blocks.
 


I think I'll stick with the barn raising setting.  I sure hope the furnace repair guy comes early on Monday!

I think the Barn Raising is my favorite too! Shows the curved shape nicely. Pretty sure you couldn't go wrong with any of those setting, though! Fabrics are so pretty!

I hope you don't mind if I shameslessly copy you on this quilt. Love the pattern and Fig Tree fabrics are perfect for it. I have my own personal inventory closet of FT hoard to use up some day. I'll hopefully remember your comments on the size error!

Yikes -- not the time of year to be without a furnace! I hope it's been fixed by now. And I'm with you, I like your first arrangement of quilt blocks best -- very pretty!
