Baker’s Dozen 23

Love this one.

Just a little bit more contrast than ones shown recently!

Old German Design 11

I like this one, and like a return of contrast after a week with little colour contrast.

Logs in the Pale 31, 32, 33, 34, 35

Middle of yet another week, and I thought it would be interesting to keep with the theme of the last week … so I am using my Logs in the Pale file for this weeks Log Cabin designs.

I am tempted to go through my fabric stash and find all the pale washed out fabrics and start playing with them, but there are a few other projects to tackle before that, including some household items, and clothing, and getting my hands dirty in the garden.

I do wonder if using all low contrast would look ok on the bed, or even on the wall, and I guess the only way to find out is to make something, so I definitely will have to make something which looks washed out before I even start cutting. Something else to add to the Must Do list!

Perhaps this is one way to get something that looks like an antique!

That’s all for this week … more Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

A Whiter Shade of Pale 21

Getting the contrast right in any quilt is harder than choosing colours … low contrast would be harder, but I love this design.

White on White Gold 15

I haven’t used anything from the White Out collection of files, so I thought I may as well keep sharing them until mid week!

I like this one!

At first I thought it would be interesting as a whole cloth quilt with cross hatching filling in the areas not filled with quilting motifs rather than applique designs. Then I thought it looked like crochet lace added to a tablecloth … or maybe knitted lace. Or embroidery.

I think I should stay out of the sun for some time!

A Whiter Shade on Antique Gold 17

I think the the outer applique blocks would be a great quilting pattern!

White Quilting 11

I love this, despite the background fabric not being very inspiring. I was looking for something to make the quilting show clearly as a virtual quilt rather than a real quilt.

Textile Inspiration White Out 15

Love this.

I would never have thought of using floral applique block designs without also using colours. I am not sure how I managed to remove all the colours from a quilt top, but I rather liked the effect, and I have one of these on my list of quilts I want to make. Hardest part will be choosing the background colour!

A Whiter Shade on Gold Quilted 12

Interesting idea … low contrast fabrics for quite complex applique designs.

Log Cabin Leaf Central 46, 47, 48, 49, 50

I am not sure how it is the middle of another week … it feels like there has just been a couple of days, but apart from the usual week days we have had a long weekend since the last mid week.

I am not going to pick a favourite this week … I like them all. A very interesting mixture of designs.

The one above is probably my least favourite design, but it is still an interesting design.

Love the fig leaves in this one … perhaps they should all have been fig leaves.

Just checking over the five designs, my favourite is either one of the first two, or one of the last two!

If I ever make one of these it will have fig leaves!

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