Lovin’ Spoonfull in the Pink 15, 16

So pretty in pink … maybe a little bit over the top, but I like it.

Almost over the top … needs some colour editing perhaps!

Log Applique Album 26, 27, 28, 29, 30

I don’t usually like blues, but I like this lot of designs … and they are all pale blue with white.

It must have something to do with the applique, as I love applique.

For some reason even the flowers have blue leaves seams to work for me, and no matter how small a flower is in any design I have ever made up I sneak in green leaves.

I like to look at the bigger pictures of the individual designs, but I also enjoy being able to see them in a tight knit group like above. It sometimes helps to be able to pick a favourite, but not today!

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

EQ Dozen Again 15, 16

Two blocks direct from the Electric Quilt library, and I like it.

I love mixing pieced and applique blocks in quilts, as it adds a lot of interest to any design to mix in something a bit different.

Super Sashing OP 23, 24

The blocks are pretty insignificant, but who needs attractive blocks when the sashing is out of teh ordinary?

Love the second design!

Irish log Cabin OP 28, 29, 30

I have a lot of fun mixing unrelated blocks to see what happens.

I usually get carried away by the blocks and just go with whatever fabrics I find first, and promise myself that I will play with colour another day, but that day rarely comes.

In this project file I love the textures created by lots of little squares and rectangles.

Clamshells 13, 14

A very different twist to the traditional clamshell.

I like the addition of String of Beads, another oldy but goody!

I find it is always interesting to try something different with old designs although the chances of me making a real quilt are very slim.

Aussie Floral Inspiration 5, 6

Most of the flora which inspired these designs does not grow with fresh green leaves and with pretty coloured flowers. Our most obvious flora comes in bright reds, yellows and oranges, though hidden away in the bush there are some flowers which come in the prettier colours of flowers in other countries. Those bright colours often appear in the same flowers

I am a gardener, but not a plant breeder, but I thought I would try adding some pretty colours to the shapes of our flowers. Many of them look like foreigners in their new hues!

Bundaleer Logs 46, 47, 48, 49, 50


Four blocks changed, and I like the results.

Bigger change, bigger results.

Four blocks changed again, but this time I prefer the version before the change.

Like the lighter centre … would look good in all the designs.

That’s is all for this week’s mid week mini retreat from whatever is happening around the world.
