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!

Logs on the Road 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 from Virtual Quilter

I like the first design for this weeks 5 minute retreat from the world around us.

Interesting design above, but I think there is something missing. Too much space for quilting, even for me!

Like the middle design for today … just a slight alteration to the second!

Another interesting one.

I have just spent about twenty minutes playing with designs in this project file, and have saved about twenty new designs. I think I just might have to make another coffee, and then add some more!

That is all for this week, but there will be more Log Cabin design ...

Cabin Fever Quilting 41, 42, 43, 44, 45 from Virtual Quilter

The first two designs this week are exactly the same …

… except for the quilting. I like the middle of the first, but like the way the quilting emphasizes the diagonal border effect.

I like the centre of the third one as well.

Another middle bit to add to my list of favourites!

I love the way that most of the quilting is simply lines following the seam lines, though I would put that line just to one side of the pieced line, with a few curly lines to make use of the light parts of the Log Cabin blocks.

This ...

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.

Cabin Fever Isolation Area 41, 42, 43, 44, 45 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting.

Very interesting.

It is going to be hard for me to pick a favourite today … maybe the one above.

Another interesting one!

How about seeing them all together.

I think I will settle for the first one as my favourite for the day, but might have to have several mini retreats during the day to confirm that decision. I might also play with the designs to see what happens when I turn the blocks inside out. I might still be playing until next weeks mid week retreat!
