Don’t think I will be tempted to create a fabric version of this one ever!
Love the circle … might play with contrast in the background just in case something exciting might happen.
The five designs today show how a design might progress as you realize the fabric you have won’t quite stretch to fit the original design.
In my case, it is just a sign of curiosity to see what happens when I change a few blocks.
The basic design changes very little, with the nine blocks in the centre and the outer row of blocks remaining exactly the same in all variations.
Having looked at how the design has changed I think I would be very careful to buy the full fabric requirements for the first design … my favourite by far.
More Log Cabin designs next week.
I seem to be playing with dark backgrounds quite a bit. Love how the lighter and brighter colours get a whole new life against the dark.
I think I would quilt more diamond Log Cabin blocks around the coloured pieced diamonds.
My favourite is the subdued one above. Maybe because I am working with those colours at the moment. Don’t get excited, I am making clothes.
Have to admit to getting a bit excited yesterday when I made 42 buttonholes. I have owned my Bernie for over ten years and had made just one buttonhole that I can remember.
Down side of being the master (mistress?) of buttonholes, I now have to sew on a few buttons! Even button collectors have to use some of their buttons sometimes!
I need a sign for my sewing room … saying “I would rather be Quilting”!
At least the dressmaking fabrics will not be taking up much space in there for a while.
