I could not resist playing with the combination of Log Cabin border around applique blocks after seeing the possibility yesterday while picking designs for the mid week Log Cabin retreat.
So today here is an extra opportunity to have a short break, but only the walls are up in these Log Cabin designs.
In the first one the corners of the border looked a bit blunt, so introduced Courthouse Steps for the corners.
What if I change the colour of some of the background blocks? That could work.
This new project file has opened up a whole new lot of possibilities.
I am not sure that I like the light coloured Log Cabin blocks instead of solid blocks of the applique background fabric, but now I am wondering if the applique could go onto an all light Log Cabin block. It wouldn’t be the first time pieced blocks have been used for applique backgrounds. Something else to try, but I am still changing the borders so will leave pieced background blocks for another day.
So far, four variations of the Log Cabin borders, and more possibilities to explore … and I think I would like the borders to be a bit lighter overall!
