Middle of another week already … must remember to get my hair cut.
This series started when I thought I had too many designs in a project file. This project file has 263 designs waiting for their day on view.
I wish I had changed the fabric choices, but there are too many designs to go through now, and if I did go through them I would finish up with way too many designs in the project file. I will keep them as they are and bring some of them out occasionally to remind me, and you, just what you can do with just three differently coloured Log Cabin blocks.
The three blocks are a traditional coloured block with half of the strips light, half dark, so there are two triangles joined with a jagged edge, one with just the light fabrics, one with just the dark fabrics.
I don’t think the world of quilters have any other block which can be used in an endless collection of designs … then we can change the colours, and even where we place the colours in the blocks, then we have Courthouse Steps which is pieced in a slightly different order, and Curved Log Cabins.
I have to admit that with all the possible designs out there I still love Barnraising, but will never make one. There are too many possible designs to limit my choice to one while still making a very traditional style quilt.
