Cabin Fever Christmas Edition 36, 37, 38, 39, 40

Cabin Fever Christmas Edition 36

Most of Australia does not get snow, but it is our best chance of getting a white Christmas, and enjoy a roast turkey dinner, so there are plenty of ways to celebrate Christmas in July in different ways to our usual hot weather with cold turkey!

Cabin Fever Christmas Edition 37

During the next couple of weeks I will share some inspiration for Christmas projects, though it is not often we need quilts on our beds at the end of December.

Cabin Fever Christmas Edition 38

At least Christmas Log Cabin quilts would be both seasonal and useful in the northern hemisphere, while I sometimes take a Christmas quilt to a real life quilt retreat I take part in at the end of July.

Cabin Fever Christmas Edition 39

In real life the Christmas ‘quilt’ on our bed at Christmas doesn’t have wadding, but is at least patchwork.

Cabin Fever Christmas Edition 40

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

Border Beauties 38, 39

Border Beauties 38

Trying something different … joining blocks separated by a solid block, but with a contrast line added to the centre of the plain block. An idea which would work better with different pieced and applique blocks, but interesting!

Border Beauties 39

In this second design the sashing is nearly as wide as the blocks … which makes some odd shaped pieces … do you know how to use paper templates stuck to the wrong side of a clear ruler to cut weird shapes?

Love it!

Floral Wedding OP 27

Are you wondering how many little flowers are used to form the Double Wedding Ring segments in these quilts?

I think it is 420 for the one above, and 526 in the first one!

Love it.

Double Wedding Quilts 14

Love it!

Love using part of a block design as applique, and filling in the missing bits in the quilting.

Lovin’ Spoonful 29, 30

Lovin' Spoonful 29

My favourite project file got missed in the transition to Electric Quilt 8, but was not totally lost thank goodness!

I still find it hard to believe an old spoon could inspire so many blocks and therefore, so many quilts!

Lovin' Spoonful 30

I am going to make one of these designs one day … the hardest part will be choosing which one!

I do know it will not be a whole cloth quilt, but there will be plenty of room for the quilting to shine!

While you look at these two designs I just might have a coffee … which means using the spoon which started all this to add the sugar … though not stir it!

TNT Log Jam 81, 82, 83, 84, 85

TNT Log Jam 81

Middle of the week, which means it is time to share Log Cabin design quilts again.

TNT Log Jam 82

I love twisting and turning blocks just to see what happens. It is rare that I don’t save what happens, though I have to admit that it takes a couple of twists before the save.

TNT Log Jam 83

The best part is that there are always designs waiting to be discovered.

TNT Log Jam 84

I cannot pick an outright favourite today, but like the second one, and the last one, and have a soft spot for the one in the middle too.

TNT Log Jam 85

That is it for this week … but there will be more next week!

Brooksea 8

Love the first …

Brooksea 9

… but love the second more!

My Mum’s favourite colour was purple, and with results like this I can understand why!
