Looks like something to have in a quiet, peaceful bedroom.

Same blocks, same fabrics as yesterday’s virtual quilt, but much more feminine.

By the way, those little smudgy bits are meant to be a low contrast fabric!

Pretty florals, but still rather a masculine quilt.

Log Jam 76, 77, 78, 79, 80

Log Jam 80

It is mid week again, which means time for a very short retreat from the world at large to look at some Log Cabin designs.

Log Jam 79

I like the windmill in the centre of the one above.

Log Jam 78

All the blocks are basic Log Cabin blocks, with a few made with all light or all dark fabrics.

Log Jam 77

We are now living at the southern end of the Flinders Ranges, which is a very old range worn down by time, and one of the features of the flora of the area is the Flinders Range wattles, and this is the time of year when the yellow/gold of the wattle joins the dull greens of the natural flora, and the bright greens of wheat, barley, oat, pea crops, which also include canola … a green crop which turns bright yellow in the near future.

Then there are the soursobs, imported from South Africa and making themselves very much at home … we passed a stunning roadside patch of them a couple of days ago!

Log Jam 76

Very few log cabins in the area to live it, as most of the older houses are stone, but there are several quilt shops and quilt groups, so of course there are a variety of Log Cabin quilts made in this area.

 

That’s it for this week … more Log Cabin designs next week, mid week.

I like it, and even the fiddly bits would be worth the effort to make this real instead of just virtual.

Pretty and dainty.

Needs some soft, feminine quilting design.

By the way, this is the first time I have scheduled less than a week ahead for the last month or so.

I rarely blog ‘live’, as I like each virtual quilt to go out to the waiting world at the same time every day, but during the shifting and initial unpacking I scheduled way ahead, but now I am back nearly live blogging again!

The house is now functional, though it still looks like a disaster area most of the time. We can carry out most of the things we need to do day to day, but the fun stuff is still in boxes. The sewing room has furniture in place, but not any materials to work with, and minimal tools. At least I can virtually make quilts in here as my desk is installed in the sewing room for the first time.

The lounge room needs attention, so does the spare room … then the real unpacking starts!

Love it … one from my favourite project file.

Still love the spoon that started the series, and it is now installed in the kitchen in our new residence!
