Log Cabin Mixed 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 from Virtual Quilter


Not the sort of thing I normally share on a Thursday, but that is what happens I don’t finish the first coffee on a Wednesday morning … this week’s mid week retreat got misplaced!

The second one is also interesting … this is what happens if you want to make a Curved Log Cabin quilt in the barn raising layout, but make it a bit different because you have some Courthouse Steps blocks you want to use up.

Now i have a Barnraising Curved Log Cabin with four Courthouse Steps blocks.

I am starting to like what is happening ...

Log Cabin Mixed 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

This week’s Log Cabin project file has a collection of different Log Cabin blocks, and the design above is mostly Chimney’s and Cornerstones with and without curves. I like the first design!

Still lots of Chimneys and Cornerstones in the second, but a bit more variety in the Log Cabin variations.

All the ones above have two variations of Courthouse Steps.

Love the one above … my favourite for today!

An interesting design to finish off today.

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

Logs at Lochiel 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 from Virtual Quilter

I decided to try some Log Cabin quilt designs in shades of pink because I have rarely seen pink Log Cabin quilts … or pink logs to build real cabins either.

Pink is not my favourite colour, but it always looks pretty and feminine.

In the three designs so far the small changes are making small improvements to the designs.

I am liking the designs more with each change so far.

The last design for today has a big change, and I like it a lot.

That is all for this week … more Log Cabin quilt designs next week, mid week.

Less Logs in the Cabin 86, 87, 88, 89, 90 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting. Also neat and tidy.

Very interesting.

I have had my mid week retreat. I selected these designs from the project file and had a good look at them during a coffee break. Hope you can do the same.

I like the outer row of blocks … looks like a very solid fence line to me.

My favourite for the day is above!

I have to admit that selecting Log Cabin designs is usually just selecting a project file, and using the next five designs … today I had a coffee break after that part and just studied the selected designs before ...
