Log Cabin Baby Blocks 61, 62, 63, 64, 65 from Virtual Quilter

Middle of yet another week so time for a collection of Log Cabin designs, so if possible, retreat from whatever the world is handing you for a few minutes.

I like the first design, but the colours in the second look happy … due to the yellow I guess.

Subtitle for the above could be Ring-a-ring a Posy … or should that be Ring-a-ring a diamond.

All these designs feature stars, but I like the extra star in the centre of the one above.

The last one has a star within a star.

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

Hi 5s Highlights 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

I like at least some applique in quilts, along with room to show off some quilting. The first design today lacks applique, but I love it. Perhaps I would applique those pointy stars, and I know I would at least applique the centre circle.

Another very interesting design. The white highlights really add some sparkle to these designs.

Star for Selina OP 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

The same block as yesterday, but on point, with sashing … so I could add sashing squares.

Love both of these!

Red, Black and White 10, 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter


Love the second.

Love the third, but I would look for a black fabric with more subdued print … or none at all.

Beetaloo Logs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

New series … 144 Log Cabin blocks, no modifications.

In the group collection above the last one, Barn Raising, is my favourite traditional

Log Cabin design.

However, I started this file to see if I could come up with some interesting layouts with a large number of Log Cabin blocks.

The green influence is probably related to the plants I am planting out, digging up, dividing, replanting or potting up at the moment.

I am never too sure how a project like this will work out, but I was pleased to have this design after just a few twists and turns ...

My 8 Blocks 44, 45, 46 from Virtual Quilter

This series was one of the early ones using original design blocks, and before I really got into modifying blocks … but there are a few modifications in the designs.

The second one does have a modification …

… the third one has two modifications of one block.

I think I need to play with the colouring a bit, but I can see potential for a very interesting quilt in this one.

Red and White Quilts 43, 44 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting, and all those blocks are made with simple, straight seams.

Another interesting design, and though I am not a fan of red and white even if they are the local sporting colours, I really like it! Room for quilting os a bonus.

Silly Sadie 12 from Virtual Quilter

Serendipity is a feature found in Electric quilt which twists, bends and mutilates blocks more than I do, and I have rarely played with it, but have to admit it can be fun … and I have tried to find a block which produces designs I might make into a real quilt, but despite some interesting designs, nothing appeals to me yet, but I will keep trying every now and then.
