I am a long-time now and then user of this site finally coming on board with a question. I am working on a log cabin afghan. Some of my squares are bigger than others and I'm contemplating how to finish.

I think a border around each square could help me get the squares to match size wise with more or fewer rows of stitches around each square as needed. Another idea I had was using single-color squares inbetween the log cabin squares.

Here are some images I came up with using images of the actual knit log cabin squares and some computer created borders & single-color blocks. What do you think? Any other ideas?

Pic A - Red Border Around Outside Edge Only
Pic B - Red Border Around Each Square & Border
Pic C - Single Color Blocks & Log Cabin Squares w/Red Border

Thanks!

Wow..that is going to beautiful! I actually had a hard time choosing, but I went with Pic B. I do like Pic C as well though..there's something about those squares that is mesmerizing! Aren't they fun?!

I can't pick between B and C. B makes every thing pop and C some how draws you in to look at it.

I like 'C' the best. It gives the eye a better view to appreciate each individual square. Plus, it gives the illusion of 3D to me. :mrgreen:

Wow - that's going to look amazing! I'm having a hard time deciding between B and C - I like the pulled together look of B, but the optical illusion action of C. Either way you can't loose!:mrgreen:

I voted b as well! It'll look stunning! I've seen Jan's log cabin square and was intrigued, now seeing it in a whole blanket, I'm thinking I need to learn this technique! Great job!

I too liked all of them, but B to me is the best one. It's really going to be beautiful! :thumbsup:

Ok. I got a better computer than the one I have at home. And C does have an optical illusion about. I think you should make both B and C. lol

I really like the one with the solids - to me - its not quite as busy - but shows the details of the multi colored squares off. They're all beautiful though - thats just my favorite! Let us know what you choose!

While C was pretty, it was my least favorite. I was going between A and B. Option "B" (with red trim around each square) ended up winning my vote, hands down. HOWEVER you end up doing it though I KNOW it will be beautiful and I can't wait to see the final product.
