Keeping with the theme of old project files, here are some old Log Cabin designs … … some all light and all dark blocks with traditional half and half blocks. The one above is something you could do if you … Continue reading

  I have shown a lot of pretty, feminine designs lately, so today I am sharing something different, and more suitable for the rough and tumble for a family of boys. Two nearly the same above and below. I suspect that … Continue reading

This project series was an off shoot from one of several which were growing like topsy when I first started sharing Log Cabin designs. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep up the supply of designs for … Continue reading

Oops! I was busy counting virtual quilts and forgot to count the days, and missed the mid-week Log Cabin retreat! This series, along with a few other Log Cabin series, uses rather boring colours, but the contrast is right where … Continue reading

  More designs using basic Log Cabin blocks, with some of those blocks made without the usual contrast. I am always a little disappointed that most Log Cabin quilts use just a handful of designs … and I just love … Continue reading
