Fishing (Log) Cabin 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 … that’s enough!

I discovered this design in a duplicate project file just as I was about to delete the whole file.

Then I thought I saw something moving..

Well, something which could move if it was real and not just a shape on a virtual quilt design.

Not just one, but four of them really.

Don’t know if these fish would be good eating fish, but they could be decorative.

With the space cleared a little there is room for them to move.

There they are, all lined up neatly in a school.

Add a few scattered bubbles and it is a fun design for someone who likes fish or fishing.

Usually my designs get more complex as they develop … this one went in the opposite direction.

If I wanted to make this for a fish lover the next step would be changing the colours, but I think you can see the progression … the water in this designs is a bit murky after heavy rain has washed a lot of sand off the beach. That’s my story anyway.

    Love the morphing. Any of them would be cool quilts to have.


  3. This is a fun progression! :O)

    Ahh, I love the fish with the bubbles!


    • Vicki,

      Yep! The bubbles were the finishing touch. Though the blocks could be smaller so there could be more of them in a large quilt, which would allow room to have them swimming in all directions.

    Cool little fish, Judy. I facebooked it!

    This is a terrific design. Is it available to purchase?


    • Barbara,

      Thank you. Sorry … no pattern at this point, but maybe I will add it to the list!

      However, the blocks are the same as the ones used in the Christmas Rose in the Cabin design which is available as pattern sheets … and its a free download.

    Very creative. I love all of these designs, but the fish with bubbles definitely calls out to me to make it. Inspirational.

    Haven’t explored my EQ7, yet, but this sure inspires me. How do you get your pdf downloads? Or maybe as a log cabin, it’s simple enough to just figure it out on our own? Have never done a log cabin even though I’ve been told it is a basic, easy block. I love the fish with the bubbles. Usually, even if I use a traditional pattern, I like to use it in a slightly different, or wonky, way…this fits the bill for me. I’m adding myself to your blog list…love your sense of design. Keep up the great work.
