Log Cabin Mixed 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

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.

About Virtual Quilter

I am a quilter who designs many more quilts than I will ever make, and I am sharing one quilt design every day in Virtual Quilter. I also share my completed projects in Stuff-Ups, and Christmas decorations in Christmas Everyday of the Year.

    LOL it is funny how what is one persons zen zone is another’s purgatory. I love piecing quilts. I really like the first design today. As I have said before purple is my daughter’s favorite color.


    • Cindy,

      It is nice to have people in our lives who love what we love, but it is also nice to have people who love different things.

      And about colour, I wasn’t a fan of purple until I made a quilt for my parents, and Mum chose the colour … purple! By the time I finished that quilt I liked purple.
