Hearts for Felicity 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Two very similar designs today … I thought this one was too busy in the corners, so tried to simplify the corners.

I prefer how it was to start with!

How about you?

Inside the Logs 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Inside the logs are appliques and quilting motifs based on those appliques.

Some of the appliques are on plain blocks, some are on light coloured Log Cabin blocks.

Love the one above!

What about a bit of contrast in the background? I like it.

I like the last one … more contrasting background, not a lot of piecing as I don’t enjoy piecing much, and lots of places for quilting without seams!

That’s all the Log Cabin designs for this week’s five minute retreat for quilters, but there will be more next week, mid week!

Love the first design today!

All blocks are from Electric Quilt library, with a few tweaks from me.

My Medallion Too 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Looks old fashioned, and I like it.

Different colours, still old fashioned, but I like this one better even if it looks as if it is missing the binding.

Sometimes I like the colours in this project file. Sometimes I don’t like them.

Today I do like them

I also like both designs.

9 Patch ā€˜nā€™ Apps Centered 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

Nice layout, but I think I would much rather have an applique in the large centre.

Ah, much more to my taste!

Bright Life 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

Dark backgrounds really make bright colours shine.

Love the second design.

I am trying to work out what colour I would paint the walls in a bedroom with this on the bed!

Brooksea at Christmas 4, 5,6 from Virtual Quilter

It is looking a bit like Christmas!

Nothing like red, white and green to bring out the Christmas spirit for me.

I thought the first one was my favourite for today, but maybe it is the last one.

EQ Dozen + Quilting 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first design. Only thing missing is a quilting design for the border.

No border quilting again, but I like the rest of the design.

EQ Dozen Again 10, 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

Simple setting for 9 applique blocks, leaving room for quilting.

More applique, but still a nice setting for them.

I like the idea of using simple pieced blocks between applique blocks … much more interesting than using sashing. The simplest combination would be simply alternating a variety of appliques with just one pieced block design.

And this one! Three out of three ain’t bad.

Log Applique Album 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 from Virtual Quilter

Found an old project file which had few designs by comparison to most, and those that were there needed attention, so saved five for today, then retired the project.

I like the challenge of trying to find suitable applique to use with, and on, Log Cabin blocks, and intend trying different colours, and different appliques in the future.

Love the one above … one of the reasons I had to use this project file one more time.

Like the one above too.

I love the last … the one which made me want to share a handful of the last 8 designs ...
