I wondered if Log Cabin would work with washed out colours … like a quilt which has been washed many times.
When I tried the first design I thought I might look for less contrast for the darkest fabric.
I started playing, and sort of liked the definition the dark outer log in each block added.
The darker log mapped out some interesting designs.
The one above immediately got a name as well as the usual number … Earthquake in a Log Cabin.
So, for now, the dark fabric stays, and then I played with the colouring of the logs.
This colour combination looks a more like a summerhouse that a Log Cabin!
