Time for a mid week break and a couple of Log Cabin blocks. Got your coffee? (You are welcome to have tea or milo if you prefer. I will keep the kettle topped up all day today!)
I started a series of Log Cabin Plus designs a while ago ….. then deleted the project file. Over the Christmas break I filled in a few hours playing with Log Cabin designs, and now have new project files replacing the dleted files.
They are not a reacreations of the files I deleted …… my memory for quilt designs is quite good, but not that good!. In the deleted file I used both all light and all dark blocks to replace some of the more usual half light/half dark blocks. This time I worked through with just the all light blocks, then started another file and added all dark blocks.
This week I am introducing the new Log Cabin + series with two designs. The one above uses eight all light blocks and fifty six half light/half dark blocks.
Swap another twelve half and half blocks for all light blocks and look at how the designs jumps out from the background. (24 light, 40 half and halfblocks required.)
And I love the way those centre squares in the all light blocks add their own design element to the overall quilt.
Something else for you to look at today ……
the 70s Log Cabin series now has it’s very own album page,
and you will always be able to find it over on the right hand side of this blog under Extra Pages,
or as you are here, you can just click
That is show and tell over for this week’s midweek retreat , so when you have finished your coffee, tea or milo it is back to work until next Wednesday.
