Sixty four identical blocks can be twisted and turned every which way to create a multitude of designs.

The second design has a few blocks twisted, but all of them have the light and dark sides opposite …

… but with the light and dark swapped back to the same as the first design.

Once again the dark colour is prominent, with a few blocks turned around …

… and with the light color prominent.

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

Cabin Fever Quilted 61, 62, 63, 64, 65 from Virtual Quilter

I think I would like the backs of these designs as much, if not more, than the front.

Another option would be to make all the blocks in very pale washed out colours, not just the light areas.

I love hand quilting, but the curves in the quilting look like a great design for machine work.

The steps around the deign above are interesting, but I am trying to work out if I like them or not!

Very simple layout for the coloured parts, but I love the quilting design on the light areas.

I rather like the first design, though I think I would like it better on the floor than on a bed.

Very interesting.

What if I change the light fabrics to dark and vice versa, and change a few blocks.

The design is much lighter, but with dark lacey bits.

What if I add four dark blocks ….

Interesting, but not better than it was.

I think the last one is my favourite design this week, but there are many more designs in this project file for future reference.

Seeing them all together makes it easy to see the changes I ...

As usual on Wednesdays I share more quilt designs than other days of the week so you can have a longer coffee break sometime during the day. This week while you have your very short retreat from the mad, mad world, I am in the middle of a Monday to Friday retreat with quilters , and maybe even doing a few stitches occasionally.

Not a lot of variety in the blocks used in the first two designs, but two very different results.

Another different but interesting design!

Different again … though I think I might be repeating myself.

My favourite in this ...

Logs OP + 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

Wow, I like the first design in this mid week Log Cabin retreat!

Mmm … interesting.

The last three are like triplets … similar, but with a few little differences.

Which one would you choose?

If i had to choose one, I would use the first design of the day, but the last three would be good if I had to make quilts for triplets!

That is all for this weeks mid week Log Cabin retreat … only long enough for a coffee break, no long lazy day reading in a nice warm spot.

Love the first design for this week’s Log Cabin designs.

Love the points in the middle of each side in the second design.

Weird, but interesting.

Another interesting one, and I like it.

No favourite for me today … I like lots of things about all of them. Can you pick a favourite?

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week!

I have the urge every so often to play with Log Cabin blocks. This project has been around for a long time, with a LOT of quilt designs in it, but a large proportion of them have Thick and Thin blocks almost exclusively.

I have to admit that most of the designs are interesting, with some with the WOW factor, but the intention was to mix up all the variations of Log Cabin blocks.

The one above is rather nice, even if it is all just three colourways of the one block.

The next one couldbe quilted with lots of ...

Curved Cornerstones + 101, 102 103, 104, 105 from Virtual Quilter

I like the first design for today …

… and the second …

… you guessed right if you guessed that I like the third!

When I opened this project there were no designs in there that I haven’t already shared, so I picked some designs and made some simple changes to ten of them, so not only did I get designs for today, I have five more to share another day.

I even like the last design though the thought of trying to put this one together makes my head spin.

That is all for this week … five designs to distract you ...

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.

Less Logs for Christmas 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Love the first design of the day.

Also love the second! I don’t think I will be able to select a favourite from todays selection of designs.

I have to admit to never making a Log Cabin quilt, but have been part of a group effort, and the lesson we learned is noted here, The Quarter-inch Seam for Work Groups.

Yet another great design … in my never really humble opinion.

I can’t stop loving these designs!

That is all for this weeks virtual Mid Week Log Cabin Retreat, but there will be another mid week, next week, when ...

Not quite so interesting.

A slight change … but I prefer the first one of the three very similar designs so far.

Something totoally different to the first three … some space for quilting to shine.

Love the last one, but can see a few things I would like to change!

More Log Cabin designs in the middle of next week.

Logs on Point + 96, 97, 98, 99, 100 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting start to this weeks five minute Log Cabin Retreat.

Change four blocks and the design changes, and I like the change.

Big changes for the next design …

… change four blocks and I like it more.

It never ceases to amaze me how small changes can make a big difference to a design. That is why I love Electric Quilt.

I can change a design many, many times without damaging any fabric.

Last design for this week, and I like it just as it is … but there is still an urge to play.

That’s all for this week … more ...

Thick n Thin Logs 61, 62, 63, 64, 65 from Virtual Quilter

Middle of another week already, which means time for me to share some Log Cabin designs.

This week the designs use just one block in two colourings. The first one uses one colour variation, the second one uses the other variation.the only decision you have to make is whether you use the dark fabrics for the wide strips or the narrow strips.

I like the darker versions of the designs I have shared today, but maybe that is because it is a cold and wet day and the darker colour looks warm!

The one below is the opposite colouring ...

Interesting start to this week’s mini break from the day to day routine, if only for the fact that it is a day late! It feels like life is starting to get back to a mad rush, but I am still enjoying the slower pace of life over the last few months.

If I was making the design above I would be very tempted to put some applique around the centre. It could also be space for the quilting to shine, but I think applique would work better.

Very dainty! Not something I would say about many Log Cabin ...

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!

Logs on the Pile 66, 67, 68, 69, 70 from Virtual Quilter

Middle of the week, and a collection of Log Cabin quilt designs to look at during a short break from the rest of the world.

I like the first one, not so keen on the second, but thought it was too interesting to hit the delete button.

The middle design for the mid week post … and the least I could say about it is wow! that is interesting.

Back to an almost boring design by comparison to the one in the middle, but I like it, and love the waving line created by Curved Log Cabin blocks.

The last is ...
