Super Sashing 32

Super Sashing 32

I love it.

We all spend time trying to work out what colour goes with what … this colour scheme solves that problem! Still need contrast, but with just a dark and light, even that is easy.

Curved Cornerstones 31, 32. 33, 34, 35

Curved Cornerstones 31

In the right fabrics the first one might look like something made by a very artistic spider!

Curved Cornerstones 32

Love the second one!

Curved Cornerstones 33

I have been sitting here for five minutes wondering what colours I would use if I was to make a real one of these … I am going through a green phase so possibly the dark would be green, or maybe the light, but what would I use where I have used green in this virtual series of designs.

Curved Cornerstones 34

Love the way the blocks in the centre appear to be framed … which makes me wonder which design I would make if I can make up my mind about a colour scheme!

Curved Cornerstones 35

I think I had better continue to ever so slowly finishing the quilt tops that are in waiting!

That is all for this week’s virtual Log Cabin Quilt retreat … five minutes to study some virtual quilt designs and dream about future real quilts!

As always, more Log Cabin quilt designs mid week, next week.

Tangled Irish Chain Apps 8

Tangled Irish Chain Apps 8

All sorts of wonderful things just might happen if you mix up Single Irish Chain blocks, double Irish Cabin blocks and some applique … and than add a little bit of quilting.

Quilting at Eleven 18

Oh, so restful.

One of the most important features of a quilt, along with cuddly.

I love this series … designed using the engraved design on one of those old fashioned spoons which hung over the sugar bowl.

Selina Pearl 9, 10

Selina Pearl 9

This series of designs is demonstrating what can be done with just one block design by using the background colour for some of the designs pieces. I have left the seam lines there, but in a real quilt I would be able to avoid a lot of seam lines.

Selina Pearl 10

The block in the centre of the second design is the Selina Pearl block with all the contrast pieces showing.

I have forty more quilt designs in the project file to share in the future, but I am thinking that I should start playing with at least one more block to see what happens.
