Log Heap 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10

This project file has been lurking in the deep since I first started playing with Log cabin designs to share.

It is one of several which have over 200 designs saved, and I think it is about time I started letting them out into the world-wide web. 66 more words


Logs on Point 31, 32, 33, 34 and 35

I should play with more designs set on point.

Setting Log Cabin blocks on point makes all sorts of interesting things happen .. including the Prairie Point effect around the one above … 46 more words


Applique Logs 66, 67, 68, 69 and 70

Some of those Log Cabin blocks can be decorated with a little bit of applique.

Turns a nice quilt design into a stunning quilt design. 34 more words


TNT Logs + 36, 37, 38, 39 and 40

I have been going through some old printouts of quilts which all had the seam lines printed.

I much prefer those without seam lines. Unless we add some contrast embroidery by hand or machine we don’t really notice the seams in a real quilt. 57 more words


Log Cabin Baby Blocks 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20

Another way to use Baby Blocks.

Start with a diamond, add strips on all sides, just like Log Cabin, but with the angles changed.

Interesting results … like the floating points around the outside. 36 more words


Log Cabin Leaf Central 6, 7, and 8

I like this series … I can almost believe there are leaves falling from trees any time of year.

Most of the native trees in Australia are not deciduous, but the European trees here are just about fully covered with leaves to give us shade during summer, then change colour in a few months time. 19 more words


Curved Cornerstones 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17

I love designing new blocks. Then I have to work out if they work in quilt designs.

The five designs I have added today are from  the days when I was still very much testing the Curved Cornerstone blocks. 73 more words
