When selecting and sorting colours for Log Cabin quilts, you need to have a good contrast between the light and dark sides …
… but that doesn’t mean you have to use black and white. It is important thing to to keep it consistent all over the quilt.
I love playing with Log Cabin designs, as anyone who visits here mid week, every week … when I share five designs so we can have a couple of quiet minutes of retreat just looking at the designs.
I have to admit that I have never made a Log Cabin quilt, though have made blocks for group made quilts … and worked out that for group quilts the best way to work is for person One to add the first round of strips, person Two adds the second round of strips … this way our slightly different seam allowances are consistent in every block, and all the blocks are the same size. It is also lots of fun sewing with a group of people who share a love of all aspects of quilting.
However, I am wondering how many pale fabrics I have in my stash … I don’t think there are enough, but I could always go shopping!
More virtual Log Cabin designs will come, but not until next year … next week, mid week.
