One of the things that's so much fun with a log cabin quilt is deciding how to set the blocks together. I think I like the diamond set the best, but the diagonal is very tempting. I'll just make a bunch more blocks (bunch is a mathematical term) and then decide at the last minute.
I just got my copies of Gwen Marston's books "Ideas and Inspirations, Abstract Quilts in Solids" and "Freddy and Gwen Collaborate Again." My eyes are dazzled and I never need another quilt book again (I must own about thirty or forty quilt books, anyhow) unless Gwen writes another one!
