Three blocks combined, all constructed exactly the same way, with all dark, all light and half light, half dark.
The colours I have used are not particularly attractive but I was concentrating on finding how many ways I could mix up those three blocks in overall designs.
I have found many times that if the contrast is right, I will admire quilts made with any combination of colours.
Even scraps can be sorted into light, medium and dark so that they make a nice design into a stunning quilt.
The advice I would give if sorting for Log Cabin blocks, sort the fabrics into three piles … light, medium and dark. Put the mediums away for some other project and use the lights and darks … that way you get a good contrast between the light and dark.
So, the lesson for today is to choose fabrics for their contrast in both colour and print. More Log Cabin designs next week, mid week.
