Curved Cornerstones 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24

Curved Cornerstones 18

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.

Curved Cornerstones 19

Or perhaps it is just tying shapes up in knots.

Curved Cornerstones 20

Whatever it is, it is fun to play with!

Curved Cornerstones 21

All these designs could be made without the cornerstones for a slightly more traditional looking quilt.

Curved Cornerstones 22

Curved Cornerstones 23

Is it any wonder I can sit down for five minutes to play in Electric Quilt and stay for an hour … or two!

Curved Cornerstones 24

I think I saved the best till last today … but I am woman so I may change my mind later.

Love it!

Intricate applique, but plenty of space for quilting to shine.

Logs in the Pale 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Logs in the Pale 1

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.

Logs in the Pale 2

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.

Logs in the Pale 3

The one above immediately got a name as well as the usual number … Earthquake in a Log Cabin.

Logs in the Pale 4

So, for now, the dark fabric stays, and then I played with the colouring of the logs.

Logs in the Pale 5

This colour combination looks a more like a summerhouse that a Log Cabin!

White Quilting 6


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.
