I vote for the Double Wedding Ring also. I think it is so beautiful. I would also love to learn to do a Mariner's Compass quilt, I think it is such a beautiful pattern.

Well, since I've only done the 9 patch, I'm pretty open for anything but I would really like to make a Log Cabin quilt. I have all the instructions but it looks like such an awesome undertaking and so time consuming that I just haven't started it yet.

I don't think I anywhere near ready for the Double Wedding Ring. I love the look of the 2nd Seven Sisters. I'd love to make that one.:D

Melissa, I would like to make a biscuit quilt too. I would like one for DD's bed. CJ, have you made one and if so was it difficult?

That is a beautiful example of the Mariner's Compass. I love the colors that they used.

LOL CJ. Thank you for the link. I had no idea there could be so many variations. Now I have MORE to think about. I thought it just went one way and that was it.

I like the idea of putting red in each center as a symbol for the hearth of the home.

Dolphin, a log cabin always had either a red or yellow centre. Also the log cabin quilt was one of the quilts that was often used for the underground railroad. When one was hanging in an upstairs window, it meant it was a safe house. Just a tidbit for you.
