    Went and looked at the picture again, a good solution might be 3 little corner stones going to that corner, hope this helps.

    Absolutely gorgeous! But, I agree with the others that the solid red cornerstones should be softer... I love the last big red border, though... You did a beautiful job on this quilt... Red and white is so vibrant...

    Love the log cabin blocks, the reds and whites go so well together. I also find the red cornerstones take away something from the quilt, maybe white or red print cornerstones would add more to the quilt and then the red print border to finish it off beautifully.

    The quilt is beautiful and I love the red and white fabric choices. Only you know what will be pleasing to your eye so the final decision is all up to you. Thanks for including us though!

    I am in the minority as I like the red cornerstones. However, two "fixes" could be:

    1) Heavy quilting in the cornerstones with white thread
    2) make 9-patch corner stones, using the opposite configuration of the white/red/white stripes. The nine patch would be -

    red/white/red
    white/red/white
    red/white/red

    I love the addition of the final border, too.

    I like the cornerstones and the red print border.
