TNT Logs 66, 67, 68, 69, 70 from Virtual Quilter

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.

Log Cabin Mix 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 from Virtual Quilter

Not a bit mix up in the first design.

More mixed up in the second, which I like because it is less boring to make a mixture of blocks rather than 64 identical blocks.

Looks like a willy-willy (or whirlwind) touched down in the sewing room.

Love the design above!

The last one is almost boring after the fourth one!

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

Cabin Fever Isolation Area 56, 57, 58, 59, 60 from Virtual Quilter

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 ...

Curved Cornerstones + 106, 107, 108, 109, 110 from Virtual Quilter

Not even many variations of the curved Log Cabin blocks in the first design, and none of the rest of the variations of Log Cabin that are included in the + sign in the title.

Interesting mix of curves and straight rows of little squares in the second.

My favourite of this weeks collection is above!

Love the centre of the one above … it made me think of the ornate speakers on some of the old Bakelite radios, with waves of sound around it.

That’s all for this week’s mid week retreat from the crazy world

This time next ...

Logs on the Pile 76, 77, 78, 79, 80 from Virtual Quilter

Mostly Chimneys and Cornerstones blocks in the first design, but tipped on point in this project file.

Not many Chimneys and Cornerstones in the second design, but some Curved Log Cabins.

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

… or maybe the one above!

There are not too many variations of the Log Cabin block not represented in these designs.

More Log Cabin quilt designs next week … mid week.

TNT Logs + 96, 97, 98, 99, 100 from Virtual Quilter

Middle of the week again … they are coming around at record speed, or it may be that I am getting slower!

For the initiated, TNT means Thick and Thin, which is how the curves are formed in these designs with no curved seams to sew. I like the one above, but like it more with just a slight change shown below.

I have reached design 100 in this project file, and there are over 400 as yet unseen designs in waiting, and they all use assorted combinations of just six blocks, or more correctly six colourways of one block. If ...

Cabin Fever Quilted 51, 52, 53, 54, 55 from Virtual Quilter

Wednesday already, so here are some Log Cabin designs to study during a coffee break.

I think I would like most of the quilting designs on these quilts as whole cloth designs … or a real quilt could be used upside down.

I have used a lot of light fabrics so the quilting shows clearly, but in a real quilt I would probably quilt the dark blocks following the seam lines, and use more decorative lines in the light pieces. The one above is very similar to the one below, but with less dark fabrics … and one quilted design worked the ...

Applique Logs 86, 87, 88, 89, 90 from Virtual Quilter

Lots of light fabrics for the half light and half dark, and for the all light blocks, and a strong contrast for the dark fabrics … then add some applique … and then some quilting .

A lot more dark in the second design, but still plenty of spaces for some applique to be added.

I like the third, but I don’t think it would look great on a bed as part of the effect of the overall design would be lost over the edge of the bed.

The on above is my favourite for today.

Last one for this weeks coffee ...
