Instant coffee this morning, and it worked almost instantly.
While I was uploading the quilt designs from the Cabin Fever project file I wanted to change some of the designs … I wanted less Cornerstones in some places … and I wanted Cornerstones where I had curves … and wanted to keep the curves.
So I drew the blocks above.
Then I tried each of them in the Barnraising setting.
I really like the curves outlined in a contrast colour.
The one above could be improved by making the contrast stronger.
More like the two above!
I really did not think I would be adding more blocks to my Log Cabin collection unless I borrowed some variations from Judy Martin.
(By the way, Judy has a new book of Extraordinary Log Cabin Quilts due to be released in November.)
Next week’s Log Cabin Mid Week Retreat will feature the other half of the introduction, and the first of the Curved Cornerstone designs where they get mixed around a bit!
Now, I am hoping another coffee will get me through playtime with the new blocks in the Cabin Fever project file … but am a little concerned it might kick my butt in the direction of the cleaning which needs to be done.
