Today’s designs are either wholecloth Log Cabin or the back of pieced Log Cabin quilts.
More accurately the second and third are Log Cabin designs, the first and the last two are Courthouse Steps.
I have been sitting at a computer and playing with quilt designs for anything from a few minutes to a couple of hours most days over the last 10 years, and I am still amazed at the difference a few twists and turns of blocks make to a favourite traditional quilt.
So far in this project file all I have done is use the Symmetry tool in Electric Quilt to do the twisting and turning … which you will find just to the right of the rotate and Flip tools on the Quilt Worktable.
The Symmetry tool works with asymmetrical blocks, but you will not notice the difference with symmetrical blocks … unless you colour the block to make it appear to be asymmetrical perhaps!
That last bit was just a thought that popped into my head as I was typing, and requires at least one more coffee and a hot day to think about, and I might just be able to organise that, though Mother Nature is expected to provide the hot day … but i have to make the coffee myself. Then I will let my fingers do the playing!
More Log Cabin designs next week … I am about to make that coffee, shut the doors and windows, turn on the air conditioner and hibernate until sunset, and maybe after, as the forecast is for a hot night too.
