Cabin Fever Christmas Edition 1, 2, 3 and 4

Continuing a virtual Mid Week Log Cabin Retreat, and another new series which will continue every Wednesday until Christmas, with some extra colours added to the red and cream used in the Cabin Fever series.

Log Cabin quits are traditionally made with two colours, or scraps divided into light and dark to create the contrast in the blocks.

What if you add more distinctive colours? The colours in this series have been dictated by the time of the year, but the green could have been blue …. or grey …. or change the red to brown, make the gold patches green and the green orange …. or whatever you like!

Graphic design …. room for quilting.

Another layout with room for quilting.

What colours would you use?

Me? I would make a small hole in my stash of autumn colours …. though maybe something soft and dainty to get away from the more usual colour schemes for Log Cabin quilts.

Even in Australia we can have snow at Christmas … if we have a WordPress blog!

    • Cat,

      Owing to the fact that these were designed as full size quilts, I think I would print them onto fabric from Electric Quilt if I wanted them for placemats …. the strips used to make the Log Cabin blocks would be about an eigth of an inch wide! Come to think of it, they would be thin enough to knit!
