What are you most proud of? My edges! Deborah has some amazing advice about how to keep track of the shuttles looping around each other. Edge thread up - shuttle goes up. Edge thread down - shuttle goes down. It's perfect. And I love that Log Cabin really works! Look at those blocks changing direction!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I decided to make my own warp plan instead of following the table runner plan and ended up with 4 dark threads instead of 2 at half of the direction changes. I think I know what I did now and I guess it is all part of the learning process. I'm calling it a design feature!

lol! Thanks! =) I can't quite stop myself from mentioning it to people when I show it off though. But hopefully that will wear off. I like the extra bold stripes.

Gorgeous log cabin! It is really neat how this design looks like the blocks are changing direction. :)

VERY nicly done!! I think your warp threading adds a bit of interest to the design. you can leave out the fact that you ooppssed some warp threads. it was meant to be like that. be proud!

Yes, Yes, Yes! I really love your design feature! It really shows off the rectangles. I hope you don't mind, but I might just try this out for myself. I think you should keep experimenting. Don't point out the mistakes to everyone. If you must, just say I planned it that way!!! HeHee :)
