Patch Play 35, 36

Love the combination of the centre block and the frame of the Irish Chain blocks.

Simple, but with a more elaborate border to frame the interior and the quilting which could fill the spaces.

My Medallion Too 11, 12

An experiment with a weird colour combination … I like the design, but not the colouring!

Much, much, much better!

Very dainty! Lots of room for some dainty quilting motifs!

The second design is still rather dainty, and there ARE quilting motifs filling the spaces.

I love the sashing in this design. I rarely use sashing in my designs, though in many of the quilts I have made I have used sashing, but not one as interesting as the one shown above.

I like the border on the second design, but am asking myself what if I make some changes of scale of the end elements?

PS I apologize for not posting this earlier, but I had a few other things I wanted to do and forgot, but I did get those other things done!

Brandis Street Blocks 21

I love this collection of blocks which were inspired by an old scrap of linoleum found at the bottom of a drawer.

A lot of the shapes could make rather nice embroidery designs as well as the applique and quilting motifs I have used them for.

Logs on Point + 106, 107, 108, 109, 110

The title of this project file indicates it uses on point settings and the plus sign indicates that the blocks include variations of the basic Log Cabin block.

The first design above uses variations of colouring mostly, but there are some Courthouse Steps blocks amongst them.

The second design is very similar, but with eight Curved Log Cabin blocks.

Four curves in the third, but there are also Chimneys and Cornerstones.

Sixteen Curved Log Cabin variations in the one above, along with some Courthouse Steps, and basic Log Cabin in the border.

I love the last two!

More Log Cabin designs next week, mid week.

Blue and Yellow Album 4, 5, 6

I started this project file with the idea that I would use a colour combination that was far from one of my favourites … the result is a project file I manage to ignore most of the time! My apologies for any blue and yellow fans out there!

The linking blocks made me think of square dancing, and that makes me wonder if anybody still knows how to square dance.

I like the last one in today’s collection.

Blocks are from the Electric Quilt library, with a few modifications by me. Love the first one.

Love the second one too.

Star for Selina 19, 20

Starry, starry night!

Not so many stars in the second design, but it is my favourite for today … I like the empty space waiting for some quilting lines to be added.

Julianne’s Star 9, 10

This project file is based on one block, but with the background fabric used for some of the pieces.

The seam lines between the coloured pieces are used as the quilting motif.

I prefer dark backgrounds for any star block, because I can only see stars at night when the sky is dark, though I do know that there are stars out there when the sun is shining.
