Red and White 2 Block Quilts 101, 102, 103, 104 and 105

Red and White 2 Block Quilts 101

Interesting to see the changes in the first three with minor alterations to the secondary block.

Red and White 2 Block Quilts 104

The one above reminds me of a board game, though I suspect the rules would be hard to follow!

Red and White 2 Block Quilts 105

Not too many designs left in this project file … but heaps of possibilities for a replacement series!

A combination of two colours and five block designs, with lots of open spaces to quilt!

Blocks in Borders 4

Blocks in Borders 4


All I wanted to do when I started this project file was check that all the border blocks had matching corner blocks … and found myself designing medallion quilts.

Cabin Fever 86, 87, 88, 89 and 90

Cabin Fever 86

One of my favourite series of Log Cabin designs … there are a lot of block variations to play with, which means an almost infinite number of possible designs.

Cabin Fever 87

Love that curvy star in the one above, though at first glance I noticed the diamonds at the point of the star.

Cabin Fever 88

Love the one above.

Cabin Fever 89

Like the ring of diamonds … though would prefer the diamonds to be sparkly!

Cabin Fever 90

Another very interesting design.

French Onion Practice 2

French Onion Practice 2

A design I put together on the way to making a real quilt.

The design for the real quilt became a pattern, initially available as a paper pattern, now in PDF form.

Vicki’s Colour Wheel 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10

Vicki's Colour Wheel 6

Most of the quilts I have seen using Vicki’s fabrics are pieced … but I like applique either by itself, or mixed with pieced blocks.

I think the combination of Vicki’s fabrics, pieced blocks and applique blocks is working well.

The next dimension to add to a real quilt is quilting … and quilting will show up really well on hand dyed fabric, and not just in large background areas. Quilted details on both pieced and applique shapes in a design are going to stand out.

Vicki's Colour Wheel 9

I am tempted to order some fabrics, but I want to try some different applique blocks before deciding on a specific design. That sounds like a legitimate excuse to allocate some time to play in Electric Quilt.

Vicki's Colour Wheel 10

Which design would you choose?
