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

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! Mind you, adding some blocks with strong contrast in the … Continue reading

Irish log Cabin OP 17, 18, 19, 20

Love it. In fact I love all of these. Even though I know I mixed up Log Cabin and assorted Irish Chain blocks for this series, I have to look hard to see how … though perhaps that is because the … Continue reading

Irish Log Cabin 6

One of the great things about blogging on WordPress is that you can schedule ahead. One of the worst things about that is that I miss significant dates, because they are a week or more away from the time I … Continue reading

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

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 … Continue reading

Logs in the Pale 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

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 … Continue reading

City Courthouse 66, 67, 68, 69, 70

Courthouse Steps is a variation of the Log Cabin block … the difference between the two is that to piece a Log Cabin block, you work around the centre square, to piece a Courthouse Steps block you work on opposite … Continue reading

Cornerstone + Blues 86, 87, 88, 89 90

Yes, it is the middle of the week again. Sometimes I get the feeling the middle gets here so quickly that we must be missing some of the other days of the week! Love the first two … so completely different … Continue reading

Framed by Logs OP 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

When I first thought of playing with Log Cabin borders I didn’t intend to put very much inside the borders. That thought held for a very short time! I had to put something in the middle … and it grew … Continue reading

Logs on Point + 61, 62, 63, 64, 65

Very interesting design. Interesting, but I like the first ones more than this one. More interest, specifically the straight zigzag lines which give a fleeting impression of blocks set straight … until you focus on the logs in the blocks. … Continue reading
