This series is showing what a Log Cabin quilt might look like on the back.
The Log Cabin blocks have been quilted in or near the ditch on the dark side, maybe almost all over, but sometimes a motif is used, usually on the light side of the block.
The design above even has some space left for some boring filler design, which always helps the motifs to stand out.
I am still very much experimenting with quilting designs for Log Cabin quilts, particularly combining the fabric filled versions with the quilting lines … without one hiding the other.
This series is a compromise … but to be honest, I think they would be great wholecloth quilts, and would be OK done with both regular quilting threads matching or contrasting with the fabric … or using heavy thread and bigger stitches.
By the way, if you were wondering about what sort of time I had at the retreat last weekend … it was fun from start to finish. I even worked on some real quilts!
Real friends, real quilts … winning combination!
