Brandis Street Blocks 6, 7, 8

Not quite as complex as it appears as there are some intricate quilting motifs which look a bit like applique in there!

These designs make me think of some of teh antique designs I have seen.

I love the last one as it has a bit more open space between the applique,

I like the first design for today. It is a combination of two fairly basic 5 Patch blocks, with one more intricate design.

The second design has three more complex designs with one basic … I think this one works too.

Another one with two complex and one basic, and I love the colour change which links the design together.

Very, very interesting, but the middle looks a bit blank!

Not much in the middle, but it is better.

Very feminine!

Not to mention, pretty!

The butterfly fluttering by is pretty too!

Interesting … and likable.

Not many alternative colour placements in the second design, but they make an impact on the overall design.

A lot more all dark blocks in the one above.

I like the design above … much lighter than the previous one.

Much darker again, but I like the last design for today’s Log Cabin retreat.

My favorites are the two on the left of the gallery … what is/are yours?

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

Dainty … in size (with 9 inch blocks) and design.

Interesting sashing, and love the whole thing.

I have brightened up an old project file, and I like the results so far.

I have started modifying some of the blocks too but you will have to wait for the new, more accurate blocks, to appear.

Love the centre of the first design, but I think the Double Wedding Rings in the corners are too dark.

Variation, and the corners are too dark in this one too.

What an amazing world it is after coffee when I have Electric Quilt to play with!

I should have used a lighter, slightly brighter background, but I love the design despite the colouring.

With the lighter brighter background the second design would be a wonderful place to show off some lovely quilting.

The Serendipity tool in Electric Quilt is the tool I use when I want to be surprised by what I design … after I select the tool and the block EQ does the twisting and turning for me. I love the design above, but not excited about the one below.

The second design has the original block in the side borders.

PS I do love that the link colour matches the quilt designs!
