My Bright Blocks 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

Not so basic piecing, with sharp points, curved seams and set in corners … something I would do by hand, along with the applique.

Second design is back to basics, but I prefer the first one.

Red and White Quilts 45, 46 from Virtual Quilter

The first design today features four examples of how sometimes putting four blocks together creates a whole new block. I didn’t know it would happen, and it only worked because the four blocks together are separated by background fabric.

I wonder if there are other blocks which would work together in the same way?

I love the second design too.

Log Jam 101, 102, 103, 104, 105 from Virtual Quilter

Middle of another week already!

Every week I show some Log Cabin designs, and pretty much every week I think of something different I should try. This week I am thinking that I really should start a new file with just the basic Log Cabin blocks but with the dark fabrics on the opposite side of the block.

So you can guess what I will be doing during at least on coffee break today.

But first, I have to concentrate on today’s post for you to enjoy during your coffee break.

I think I like the last one best ...

X marks the spot!

Love the second design!

Note that the block used to create the designs in the centre is featured in the border of the last design. Easy to pick it in the last design, but well hidden in the other two.

9 Patch Night Vision 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

Intricate and interesting!

Also intricate and interesting, and on point too, but I like the first one better.

Vivienne’s Star Quilt 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

One block design, but using the background fabric to hide some pieces of the full design.

I am not a fan of quilting in the ditch, but it would work for me in this sort of design.

I like the first design, but love the second one!

Just one block can be so versatile!

Curved Cornerstones 46, 47, 48, 49, 50 from Virtual Quilter

My favourite for the day is the first.

I love playing with these blocks as it is always interesting to see what happens with the light coloured blocks with the curved lines of little squares or rectangles. With all light fabrics those squares would look like little banners tangled up in spider webs. Could work well with all dark fabrics with white … it might look like webs!

Very interesting …

…. better with a dark centre.

Dark centre works better in the second designs too!

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

Hi 5s OP 23, 24 from Virtual Quilter

Very interesting start for the day …

… but I love the second design.

Designs like this make me wonder why so many quilts are made using just one block design, when mixing up some blocks creates some stunning designs, and it is not a boring slog like making somewhere between 12 and 50 identical blocks for a quilt.

New Quilt Pattern: Fair and Square, A Scrap Quilt from Selvage Blog


Scrap quilts are perfect for sheltering in place because you already have the ingredients in your stash. That was so smart of us to stock up on fabrics over the years for a time like this! I've been wanting to make a quilt using my collection of "low volume" prints. This pattern is easier than it looks. 
Here's a link to the pattern in my Etsy shop: Fair and Square quilt pattern

The pattern is available for download at the moment of purchase by clicking on "Find Files." 
Start creating now!

Dear, Dear, Dear 39, 40 from Virtual Quilter

Small blocks in these designs, so there are a lot of them in large quilts.

I think I prefer the first one, but it is a close contest between these two!

Piecing Playtime 4, 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

I like lots of things about today’s designs … but not the colour.

I like the large print used in some of the blocks and the border, and the contrast is OK.

I especially like the dark, light, large print, light, dark combination of strips which make up the border.

Virtual Quilts: Viewing, Studying and Enjoying Them in New Ways from Repro Quilt Lover

If you belong to a quilt guild, visit quilt exhibits, participate in workshops, take classes, or study quilt history, you have likely had an event canceled or postponed. If you are anything like me it’s been a lot more than one. This has left me wondering how I can fulfill my desire to view quilts and, equally important, to socialize and learn from other quilters. I miss my people! How can I get my quilt fix when everything I used to do is canceled or on hold?

Fortunately, I didn’t have to create the opportunities, I just needed ...

Super 7s OP 21, 22 from Virtual Quilter

Very interesting!

Another interesting design.

I would usually say that the second, with the applique, was my favourite of the two, but both these designs are something a bit different to the average quilt designs I cannot pick a favourite.

TNT Logs + 86, 87, 88, 89, 90 from Virtual Quilter

I like it!


A little change, and I like it.

Another little change, and I like it more.

Yet another little change, and I love it!

It is always interesting to see the designs in a group photo when there are minor changes between them. Now I can see them all at once I have changed my mind … if I had to choose one to make I would choose the one on the left in the bottom row, not the last one. Or maybe the first one!

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week!

Julianne’s Star 3, 4 from Virtual Quilter

One block design, the one in the centre, modified many times.

The quilting design is the same as the pieced block, simply following the unused seam lines.

Silly Sadie 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

I have found that Serendipity is fun, but there are a lot of designs which I haven’t saved during the play times I have had. However, sometimes a design just has to be saved, like the one above.

The second one was much improved by playing with the amount of contrast … and I love how it turned out!

Hi 5s Highlights 3, 4, 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

Two versions of the same design with a slight change in the placement of the light background.

The one above is interesting.

Love the last!

Nan's Nine Patches 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

The first design today is a bit busy for my taste, but I do like it!

I love the second one, and I must try to turn those linked star blocks inside out, but I think there may be a problem with the corners!
