Stunning … would look great in the kitchen window!
Back to three basic Log Cabin blocks … all light, all dark, and the common half light, half dark.
I started this series in EQ7, shared the first five designs, then it got lost in the clutter. I wonder how many more project files are in hiding?
These designs would be great if you have lots of light fabric, and not a lot of dark fabric, though I am sure that we would always be happy to go shopping for more fabric.
I like this one …
… but I think this one is the favourite for today’s selection.
Though I like the first one too!
More Log Cabin designs next week, mid week.
I think this would look great on a bed … which is the primary reason I make quilts.
Love this one … love the whole series.
As I said … love this one … too.
I love selecting a collection of blocks, then some fabrics, and seeing what happens.
This design uses just applique blocks, but I have used some of the pieced blocks as quilting motifs so they didn’t miss out altogether.
Love this one … another design I think would look great on a bed.
Not much applique, lot’s more piecing.
This series of designs grew like topsy in one project file, and so I split them into four files, and they continue to grow!
I love the pattern created by the two background fabrics.
Something else to play with would be quilting designs for the background … applique and pieced areas in the contrast fabrics would need some outlining, but what to do in the background.
I like it!
I have spent time over the last few months trying to tidy up my block library in Electric Quilt. My plan when I get that under control is to start some new project files of virtual quilts, along with a couple for real quilts. I will share the virtual ones as they happen … but not the real ones until they turn into reality, so don’t hold your breath waiting for them.
Today’s designs are all very similar, with the colour placement being the most noticeable changes.
Middle one is the design which is rather different to the other four.
Love the one above too … the centre could be filled with a special quilting design, an applique, or even an embroidery.
The final one has a pretty full centre!
If this mid week retreat seemed to be too short, go back and study the differences between the designs … but have a coffee break first!
