I'll put the kettle on...
Log cabin blocks are great to work with and provide such an endless array of combinations once they are constructed and put together.
I have made many quilts using the basic block pattern the last few years and this Green one is one of my first efforts.
I tend to use it mostly as a table cloth when I visit local craft groups to display my works or at local artisan craft expo's and display weekends I do sell some of my works and am looking at building this hobby into a small business that ai can run from home. I don't do the shows very often but When I do I enjoy getting out and meeting other crafty folk and fellow quilters. It tendsto be a bit of a novelty with me being a guy!
Again I love the process of designing the finished piece and the hunting down of the individual fabrics that I want to use.
First by going through my stash, and then going off to do the rounds of local fabric shops to find just the right tone and print for each combination.
The major colour choice for this piece was, as you can see... green
The tonal ratios are quite contrasting between light and dark tones in this quilt which when creating the finished pattern allowed for starker, bolder pettern definition.
Other Quilts that I have made since making this one are less stark with more subtle changes between the light and dark tones. But I really like the impact that this design has..
And there is always the quirky temptation for me too add just a hint of a contrasting or compimentary colour to the design.
