These designs don’t really include the pieced blocks … just the quilting.

So, are they wholecloth designs, or the back of a Log Cabin quilt.

I think they would work as either, though some would work better as one or the other.

I have spent quite a lot of time trying to work out the stitchin sequence for the Log Cabin part of these designs, and have reached the conclusion that I would do them by hand unless there was a machine which could start and stop without the need to tie off or hiding all those loose ends. It ...

Simple Log Cabin Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The Simple Log Cabin Quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Co. Watch the free quilt tutorial today.

Life on the American frontier was hard. There were prairies to tame, trees to fell, and fences to build. There was butter to churn, laundry to scrub, and water to fetch.

Not an intersting setting for a Log Cabin quilt, but an interesting setting to show off some quilting on a Log Cabin quilt.

I like the one above.

Last one for today, and from this project file … and it is my favourite for today.

More Log Cabin designs next ...

Today’s designs are either wholecloth Log Cabin or the back of pieced Log Cabin quilts.

More accurately the second and third are Log Cabin designs, the first and the last two are Courthouse Steps.

I have been sitting at a computer and playing with quilt designs for anything from a few minutes to a couple of hours most days over the last 10 years, and I am still amazed at the difference a few twists and turns of blocks make to a favourite traditional quilt.

So far in this project file all I have done is use the Symmetry ...
