Super Sashing 29

Super Sashing 29

I have never considered making a real black and white quilt, but this sort of design would make it tempting.

Please note, the sashing is half as wide as the blocks!

TNT Logs + 51, 52, 53, 54, 55

TNT Logs + 51

Interesting start for a mid week Log Cabin Retreat.

TNT Logs + 52

Love the one above!

TNT Logs + 53

Slight variation, but I prefer the original!TNT Logs + 54

I have made a decision that if we get some weather which is too wet and miserable to spend time in the garden, I am going to spend time playing with virtual Log Cabin quilts by adding more colour variations. For example, the design above could have lower contrast fabrics in the outer blocks … so could the one below.

TNT Logs + 55

I need several hours in the Electric Quilt 7 fabric library selecting fabrics!

Unfortunately, the wet and wintry weather will soon be gone, but here’s hoping for for at least a few hours when it is too miserable to do anything apart from play in EQ7.

That’s it for this week … more Log Cabin Quilt designs next week!

Plenty of applique, some spaces which have quilting added … what is not to like!

Looks like something to have in a quiet, peaceful bedroom.

EQ Mods OP 7

Same blocks, same fabrics as yesterday’s virtual quilt, but much more feminine.

By the way, those little smudgy bits are meant to be a low contrast fabric!

Pretty florals, but still rather a masculine quilt.

Log Jam 76, 77, 78, 79, 80

Log Jam 80

It is mid week again, which means time for a very short retreat from the world at large to look at some Log Cabin designs.

Log Jam 79

I like the windmill in the centre of the one above.

Log Jam 78

All the blocks are basic Log Cabin blocks, with a few made with all light or all dark fabrics.

Log Jam 77

We are now living at the southern end of the Flinders Ranges, which is a very old range worn down by time, and one of the features of the flora of the area is the Flinders Range wattles, and this is the time of year when the yellow/gold of the wattle joins the dull greens of the natural flora, and the bright greens of wheat, barley, oat, pea crops, which also include canola … a green crop which turns bright yellow in the near future.

Then there are the soursobs, imported from South Africa and making themselves very much at home … we passed a stunning roadside patch of them a couple of days ago!

Log Jam 76

Very few log cabins in the area to live it, as most of the older houses are stone, but there are several quilt shops and quilt groups, so of course there are a variety of Log Cabin quilts made in this area.


That’s it for this week … more Log Cabin designs next week, mid week.
