I love it.
I love it.
Log Cabin blocks are constructed with squares and rectangles … no curves … but with a bit of a twist to some of the variations of the basic design we can make spiderwebs.
Or perhaps it is just tying shapes up in knots.
Whatever it is, it is fun to play with!
All these designs could be made without the cornerstones for a slightly more traditional looking quilt.
Is it any wonder I can sit down for five minutes to play in Electric Quilt and stay for an hour … or two!
I think I saved the best till last today … but I am woman so I may change my mind later.
Love the colours, love the applique, love the quilting.
Intricate applique, but plenty of space for quilting to shine.
Love this series, not just this design.
I love the way straight lines can create curves.
I like it … specially like the quilting has been added already.
I wondered if Log Cabin would work with washed out colours … like a quilt which has been washed many times.
When I tried the first design I thought I might look for less contrast for the darkest fabric.
I started playing, and sort of liked the definition the dark outer log in each block added.
The darker log mapped out some interesting designs.
The one above immediately got a name as well as the usual number … Earthquake in a Log Cabin.
So, for now, the dark fabric stays, and then I played with the colouring of the logs.
This colour combination looks a more like a summerhouse that a Log Cabin!
A little bit of applique leaves lots of space for quilting.
I would add a little bit of boring background filler in a thread to match the background fabric. I wonder if using a heavy perle thread for the quilting feature quilting designs would look OK.
