These designs don’t really include the pieced blocks … just the quilting. So, are they wholecloth designs, or the back of a Log Cabin quilt. I think they would work as either, though some would work better as one or … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

Not very inspiring colours, but I have found them useful to play with design for both piecing and quilting layers. Love the one above! Another one I love … simple but effective. Interesting edges! This could be a draft plan … Continue reading

The colours are not the most inspiring I could have used, but they show clearly what I have done with the quilting layer of the design. I have a limited variety of quilting  aimed specifically for Log Cabin quilts … … Continue reading
