70s Log Cabin 46, 47, 48, 49, 50

70s Log Cabin 46

This was named for the style of fabrics used … the ones I used in dressmaking BQ … Before Quilting.

70s Log Cabin 47

I hope I never have to use those fabrics for clothing again, but would love to have some scraps to use in quilts!

70s Log Cabin 48

I thought the one above would be my favourite for the day …

70s Log Cabin 49

… but changed my mind when I saw the one above.

70s Log Cabin 50

And then changed again.

That is the lot for this week … more Log Cabin designs next week, mid week.

    I like this selection. No real favorite today either. If the colours are from the 70’s, then I see what you mean. Not my cup of tea, but I’m sure a modern selection of colours would make a big difference. Counting down the weeks to our Retreat now!


    • Marie,

      Thank you.

      Those seventies fabrics were so modern back then, and I wonder how long before the current modern combinations are old hat. I have already noticed that some old fabric styles are finding their way into the shops again, with some new reproduction style in shops now.

      I am starting to put things together for retreat … not actually packing yet, but getting a pile!

    I agree that I have no real favorite either. I think some of these fabrics would really be great in a scrap quilt but I also would not wear them these days. Very 70s style.


    • Cindy,

      Very seventies! They were fun to live through, but do not want to go back to the fashions of that era!

      When my grandmother died my Mum wanted me to take all her 70s fabrics … I wanted her to keep them. We eventually found somebody else who would use them on the backs of charity quilts.
