Star for Selina 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

The Star for Selina block is in full colour in the centre of the design above, and all the other blocks are the same block designs with some pieces left out. Look closely and you can see where the seam lines should be … I would use those lines as quilting lines.

I like stars on a dark background … after all, we cannot see stars during the day when the sun is shining.

Tangled Irish Chain Blues 35, 36 from Virtual Quilter

I should have used green for Irish, but Tangled Irish Chain Blues had a better ring to it … and I was trying to make myself use blue in my designs.

This is one of many of my project files nearing it’s use by date … which means I will have to create some new virtual quilt projects. I am going to have lots of fun!

Red and White in Reverse 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38 from Virtual Quilter

From red on white, to white on red …

… in three steps

But wait … there’s more.

I thought I would play a little longer to see what would happen, and liked what I found enough to share the results.

I like all of the last three … no one favourite today!

10 Plus Mods 6, 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first of today’s designs. It is just familiar blocks with colours arranged a bit differently to normal.

I like the second one as well. I have to admit that I would only ever use these colours for quilts to give away, but they work for me in these designs.

Another interesting one.

Cabin Fever 106, 107, 108, 109, 110 from Virtual Quilter

I should have visited this project file about a month ago! Let’s hope I don’t need to update it too often!

This project has an almost unlimited supply of Log Cabin blocks which have only one thing in common … they are squares constructed with a a few squares and plenty of strips!

I wonder how many designs are possible with so many block variations? I think I would eliminate those with blocks placed randomly to limit the number to one which would fit written down around a football oval in small numerals.

I like the one above.

However ...

Bundaleer Logs 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 from Virtual Quilter

Mid week again … I am sure the weeks are getting shorter, but I like having a look at Log Cabin quilt designs on a regular basis, so I can live with that!

I love the first of today’s designs.

All four of the others could be made smaller by removing the outer row of blocks, though I think I would put a small light border before the two coloured borders.

I like the one above!

Interesting. I can see changes I should test … which happens most days, so I will never run out of designs to share!

That is ...

Finish – Squared Away! from Needle and Foot

It has been a while since I actually finished a quilt. Hurray for Squared Away – all finished and so pretty! I started this quilt in the beginning of 2018. The block of the month was hosted by Mari at Academic Quilter. Somehow I didn’t end up following along all year though. I can’t honestly remember why. Then the blocks sat and waited, all lonely and sad, until I stitched them together last spring. Since I didn’t have enough blocks for an entire quilt, I interspersed them with a modern print of Pat Bravo’s. It was from ...

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

All the designs in this project file use the basic Log Cabin block with just three variations in the placement of colour.

I think many of them would be great on a table rather than a bed.

I am thinking that many of them would look great with the colours reversed.

I have some dressmaking fabric which I hope to turn into clothing so it is not taking up space in my sewing room, but I may digress from time to time today and play with the designs in this file. Going outside after breakfast is not going to be ...
