I started this project file day while staying in a motel by finding or drafting variations of the Log Cabin block, then finding some fabrics in the EQ Library.
It then got forgotten for nearly two years, until I found it yesterday when I started playing with the blocks.
I find that once I get a collection of blocks together, with fabrics added, the quilt designs flow pretty easily.
It would be interesting to see an exhibition of a large collection of Log Cabin quilts, all different designs, maybe with groups of five to ten using the same fabrics.
It would show just how versatile these blocks are.
It is a pity that I prefer doing applique, and designing virtual quilts, along with gardening, and anything else which doesn’t involve machine piecing!
That is all for this week’s Log Cabin retreat, but there will be more designs mid week, next week.
Wondering now if some background deigns could be added by using low contrast fabrics in the all light or all dark areas of a quilt top.
