Not very inspiring colours, but I have found them useful to play with design for both piecing and quilting layers.
Love the one above!
Another one I love … simple but effective.
This could be a draft plan for a formal garden!
An extra design to end this week’s mid week retreat so take time for an extra coffee, and I will contemplate about a new colour scheme to continue this series, as there are no designs left to share! Not very often I stop with so few designs saved up!
More Log Cabin designs next week so be prepared for a short coffee break.
Spent some time looking through Patchwork Jigsaws late yesterday … and tried to pick one to share. Settled on his one because I like the border, which is just a recolouring of the blocks making up the rest of the design.
I worked out a number system to keep track of the blocks … the ones with 16 squares made up of two pieces. I am now thinking that the more complex, and interesting, designs would be easier using just one of the 16 pieces, so that each piece can be twisted and turned individually, and then recoloured individually too.
That is how I designed a quilt with pencil and paper many moons ago, before I bought Electric Quilt 5, and I have done a couple of smallish quilts in EQ, but not for a long time.
Though I have to admit that there is too much piecing involved. I have spent the last week sorting out pieced blocks in my Electric Quilt library, and I have barely scratched the surface. One series of designs I originally called Whit’s Whimsies, but it has been renamed to Whit’s End … I was at my wit’s end trying to get get them in some sort of order!
