Interesting, but I think the border is too wide, and could use some quilting.

Quilted Border Beauties 12

Love this one! Could applique the bigger pieces, embroider leaves and stems, then add quilting!

Log Cabin Quilting 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31

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.

Interesting edges!

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.

Restful … I think I want to curl up underneath this one with a good book, but it will have to be a dream because it is only a virtual quilt.

Annie Clover’s Curved Illusions 18

I wouldn’t mind living with something like this design … though there would be a waiting period while the quilting was completed, and I think I would change the border quilting.

I set out to start quilting two projects recently … one will continue as planned, but the other was going to be by had, decided I could do it by machine, but it is back on the hand list!

PJ 1134 In a Spin 10

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.

Patricia’s Patches Quilted 13

I love using low contrast for some pieces in pieced blocks as I have done in both of the pieced blocks in this design.

Love the peacocks too.

Patch Play 17

I am still sorting pieced block designs, so am really loving looking at an applique.

Aunt Flo’s Quilt 18

I love this!

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!

Logs on the Pile 61, 62, 63, 64, 65

Mid week again already, and as usual some Log Cabin variations to look at.

Some interesting affects in all of the designs.

They don’t come more different to the one above!

That’s the lot this week … more next week, mid week.
