Logs on Point 71, 72, 73, 74, 75 from Virtual Quilter

Middle of another week already!

Second design is very interesting.

So is the next design!

Is it a four petal flower, or a propeller?

The one above might work with several colours instead of just two, but what colour combination?

I love the wavy border in the last Log Cabin design for this week.

As I added the deigns I thought the second would be my favourite, then the third, then the fourth … seeing them all together I have decided that that are equal winners.

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

Logs on Point in Purple 56, 57, 58, 59, 60 from Virtual Quilter

I like the green, but it could be replaced with orange, yellow, pink, blue, violet, …. or the purple could be replaced!

I think the second one would look interesting in a straight setting.

Or with the colours reversed and a few blocks changed!

the one above is interesting, but the centre could use a bit of bright!

I like them all, but the last one is my favourite for the day.

That is all for this week, but I will share more Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

Cornerstones + 71, 72, 73, 74, 75 from Virtual Quilter

Don’t see a lot of Cornerstone Log Cabin quilts, which is a pity as they can be very interesting designs.

I like the first one, and the second one …

… and the third one too, but would like it better if the dark and light fabrics were swapped.

The one above is what happens when Cornerstone blocks and Barnraising layout meet, and four blocks are turned around.

Love the last one!

I have to admit that this time last week I was at a retreat with accommodation, workspace etc. housed in an old warehouse. Some stitching was done between conversations ...

Cabin Fever Isolation Area 46, 47, 48, 49, 50 from Virtual Quilter

Middle of the week and there are five Log Cabin designs for you to study over a coffee break.

I like the first one.

All the blocks are Curved Log Cabin blocks, also known as Thick and Thin Log Cabin, some with light one side and dark the other, others are all either light or dark.

I like the one above too …

… but the last one is my pick of the day.

More Log Cabin designs next week … mid 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.

Bundaleer Logs 36, 37, 38, 39, 40 from Virtual Quilter

Middle of the week, time to have a look at some Log Cabin quilt designs.

I like the second one.

I like the third one too.

Like this one more.

Love the last one for this week!

Cornerstones + 66, 67, 68, 69, 70 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting.

Love the second one! I would love it with just plain old Log Cabin blocks too.

The middle design for this week’s five minute retreat from the rest of the world is a nice one.

Interesting! And my coffee cup is empty, so will have to get a refill before I add the last design for today.

Love the last design for today. There will be more next week, mid week.

I should have added four more all dark blocks to my favourite design for this week … the middle one in the top row of the group photo ...

Log Heap 46, 47, 48, 49, 50 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting … and likable.

Not many alternative colour placements in the second design, but they make an impact on the overall design.

A lot more all dark blocks in the one above.

I like the design above … much lighter than the previous one.

Much darker again, but I like the last design for today’s Log Cabin retreat.

My favorites are the two on the left of the gallery … what is/are yours?

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

Logs on Point + 101, 102, 103, 104, 105 from Virtual Quilter

Wednesday already … it is going to be a short week, but someone I spoke to yesterday thought it was Friday, so her week is shorter than mine!

I liked the Curved Log Cabin blocks used in the centre of the borders of the first design, but i like the second design with Log Cabin blocks on point around the second design, because it looks more orderly.

Straight border again, but I think this one would look better with those two Curved Log Cabin blocks in the borders.

Yes, I think it looks much better … how about you?

Something totally different ...

Cornerstones 66, 67, 68, 69, 70 from Virtual Quilter

Not my favourite colours, but I like the design.

I like the second one too. I love playing with contrast and design … colour is a more personal choice.

The middle one of today’s designs is OK, but doesn’t excite me.

Another one I like!

The last design for the day is probably the weakest link for me.

If I ever feel compelled to make a Log Cabin quilt I might choose the second one, but I would make a couple of modifications!

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week so you can have a very short retreat ...

Cabin Fever 116, 117, 118, 119, 120 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting design to start this weeks collection of Log Cabin Quilt designs.

Another interesting design … love the little waves along the diagonal.

The waves are still there, but a very different centre in the one above.

I think the one above is my favourite for today.

Well, I thought the fourth design was my favourite, but I am a woman, and I have changed my mind!

One thing I won’t change my mind about is that I love being able to see all five designs together after seeing each one separately.

Log Jam 96, 97, 98, 99, 100 from Virtual Quilter

Mid week again already, so time to share some Log Cabin designs.

I like the on point square in the centre of the first design for this week.

The second one has an interesting centre, but I don’t like it a lot.

The design above looks like couple of Band-Aids covering a wound … or is it just that I need another coffee?

Not too sure what the one above now looks like. I do know that it is probably one of the few that I would not encourage anybody to make.

The last one for this week is much ...

Beetaloo Logs 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 from Virtual Quilter

Just Log Cabin blocks in this project file, no colour variations, but still plenty of ways to twist and turn them around.

So far all the designs I have in this project file are basically Barn Raising design with some twists.

Perhaps the builders raising these barns were doing a barn dance in their meal breaks!

I enjoy playing in Electric Quilt with basic blocks like these to see what can happen, but I don’t think I would enjoy making all the blocks!

That is all for this week’s mid week retreat, but there will be more Log ...

TNT Logs + 91, 92, 93, 94, 95 from Virtual Quilter

I love the first design today!

Not too wrapped in the second,…

… but change four blocks and I like it better.

Corners look tidier with less light .

Last design for today is interesting, so that is the lot for this week’s mid week mini retreat to look at some Log Cabin quilt designs.

More Log Cabin quilt designs mid week, next week.

Bundaleer Logs 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 plus Challenge from Virtual Quilter

How many ways can you arrange a collection of Log Cabin blocks with some traditional half light, half dark, some all dark, some all light?

As you can see by the numbers in the title, today’s selection from this project file the number will reach 35variations, which is about half way through the designs I have saved so far.

The Challenge part of the title today is usually reserved for a weekend, but I have been away and will be busy for the first two weekends of this month.

So this months your challenge is to play with Log ...

Log Cabin Plus 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 from Virtual Quilter

This project file features the traditional Log Cabin block in the usual dark and light colours, plus blocks with all dark or all light fabrics.

The project file hasn’t been opened for years, and it is time to start dusting off the 150 designs in there that have not been seen since I was playing with those three colour variations of the block up to mid 2018.

With such a limited number of block designs it always amazes me how many designs are possible, and being Log Cabin blocks they are one of the most basic blocks designs to ...

Curved Cornerstones + 96, 97, 98, 99, 100 from Virtual Quilter

Middle of the week so time to spend a few minutes looking at Log Cabin quilt designs.

Like the first design.

Second one is interesting, but room for improvement …

… better, but still more room for improvement.

Getting better all the time!

I think that is about as far as I can go to improve this project file so the file will be placed in the filing cabinet for future reference if required, but will not be active in the foreseeable future.

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

Logs on Point in Purple 51, 52, 53, 54, 55 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting …

… but more interesting to see what happens if the centre is modified …

… then modified again.

I like the last of the modifications.

Love the one above …

… and like the last one for this weeks mid week Log Cabin retreat.

And while you are taking time out from whatever you should be doing, here is something else to look at.

Cornerstones + 61, 62, 63, 64, 65 from Virtual Quilter

Time to look at some Log Cabin variations.

Yep, the middle of another week already!

Interesting, but the fabric choice could be improved … a project for another day when I am bored and there is nothing else attracting my attention.

The one above would work well with Log Cabin blocks instead of Chimney and Cornerstones blocks.

Love the one above!

I like the last design for this week too.

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 ...
