Festival Garden 3

Definitely a quilt design which will remain a design … though I have been thinking about techniques for that border fence. I think I would buy in a good supply of permanent markers.

Another thought … I wonder how many markers it would take to colour a whole quilt?

Log Jam 46, 47, 48, 49 and 50

Log Jam 46


This series features just three block designs, or more accurately, three colour variations of the same block … the traditional half light, half dark Log Cabin, plus the same block constructed with all light or all dark fabrics.

Log Jam 47

Then I just did a little twisting and turning each time I moved the three variations of the block around.

Log Jam 48


The only thing to keep in mind when making Log Cabin blocks is to make sure you have a distinct difference between light and dark.

Log Jam 49

I like the one above, and the one below.

Log Jam 50


More Log Cabin variations next week.

I opened up this project file to start playing with the quilting layer … then I decided to leave this one alone. There are a lot of interesting designs which leave just a little room for filler quilting designs.

However, the block designs would make interesting quilting designs, so maybe one day I will use this series as inspiration for a wholecloth series of designs

Beaded Blocks and Borders 16

Beaded Blocks and Borders 16

Love  it … and with the knowledge I have gained over the last week or so, I would use a zigzag machine stitch … or do buttonhole by hand.

The quilt top which taught me this lesson should be bordered for show and tell sometime next week. Pity it is not as pretty as this one.
