I need a nice, quiet week … it is not going to happen in real life, so I will share some nice subdued designs here so that at least my virtual world is cool, calm and collected!

Log Cabin Blues 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34

Log Cabin Blues 29

Sixty four Log Cabin blocks … size of blocks optional … just the layout varies in six designs today.

Log Cabin Blues 30

I like the first one, and the second …

Log Cabin Blues 31

… and the third. I can’t pick a favourite yet.

Log Cabin Blues 32

Another interesting design above …

Log Cabin Blues 33

… and another interesting one.

Log Cabin Blues 34

All interesting designs, all from exactly the same blocks, with a slight modification of colours in the last.

So choose your colours, use your favourite Log Cabin block pattern, in any size you wish … and then play with the blocks until you get a design you like.

That is the lot for this mid week Log Cabin Retreat, but there will be another next week, mid week.

Interesting.

Most interesting bit is that space which needs some quilting.

It has been awhile since I have opened some of the project files of pieced designs.

In this one I added an applique border and corner blocks in the outer pieced border.

Cabin Fever Quilting 16, 17, 18, 19, 20

Cabin Fever Quilting 16

I rather like the idea of making a heap of rather bland Log Cabin blocks.

Just add quilting in a strong contrast thread and it would make a reasonable impression!

Cabin Fever Quilting 17

Mind you, adding some blocks with strong contrast in the fabrics still leaves room for the quilting to shine.

Cabin Fever Quilting 18

Perhaps it would be fun to make a pieced back … that way you could get the best of both.

Lining up the back and front would be painstaking though. I think I could manage well enough for the quilting design below, but getting the straight lines perfect is the problem.

Cabin Fever Quilting 19

I rather like that quilting design!

Cabin Fever Quilting 20

At the moment the daily grind is making each day very long, but it still feels like the weeks are flying. The man of the house is retiring within three months, and then we move. My sewing room is closed for quilting, but I still hope to get some mending, alterations, and dressmaking done before it closes completely with everything in boxes … so when I unpack I will be able to quilt, not that other boring stuff.

The best part of shifting will be setting up my full width quilting frame for the first time in over ten years! Quilting in a hoop on a stand is OK, but working at a full width frame is what dreams are made of for this hand quilter!

When that happens every day will be a quilters retreat for me, not just Wednesday, though there are no Log Cabin UFOs in boxes, but I will still have virtual mid week retreats every week as well as the other real quilt retreats!

More Log Cabin designs next week, mid week.
