I actually like to do that occasionally with my fabrics, especially if a solid color is needed. Some fabrics are just a softer, lighter version of the front on the back side, and because of the way the fabric is printed, some are a solid color on the back ~ so check the back sides of your fabrics out, I've heard the quote that you've paid for both sides, you might as well use both sides. After all, that makes your stash twice as large as you thought!
I used this fabric both front and back to add to the half square triangles in my tree block ~ I wanted a tree block in the center because that's where logs come from :)
Log cabin blocks look great with a scrappy look, so the more variations of fabrics the better (I used all Jo Morton fabrics in this quilt). I surrounded the center tree with 6" log cabin blocks, and just turned them in different directions until I found a pattern that was pleasing to me.
For the corner setting triangles, I kept with the log cabin theme and made two large 18" square log cabin blocks and cut them in half on the diagonal.
I like a traditional log cabin quilt, so I kept this one very traditional looking with the fabrics, and I quilted it in the ditch.
Logs...traditional with just a couple of twists :)
