Not Your Typical Log Cabin

I have been working on a log cabin table runner and placemats the past few days. The pattern uses a jelly roll. Wish I would have used a different jelly roll; there seems to be too much saturation of color and not enough contrast. Take a look:

I'll keep you posted on the finished project - Judy.

  1. You know, your block looks gentle and soothing to me...restful on the eye...I like it! :)

  2. I'll bet it will look great when you get all the blocks together. Wow you have a bunch of linky's. I never heard of a few of them, will check it out. Thanks.

  3. There isn't a lot of contrast, but I think for a placemat that will be viewed up close all the time, it is good. I like the colors and if they go with your kitchen or dining room, all the better.

  4. Those are some of my favorite colors. I bet your blocks will look fantastic once you have them in your placemats and runner. :)

  5. I think they look great and will look wonderful in a kitchen.

  6. hmmmm....a jelly roll for me is a cake, i'm sure it must be something else for you. perhaps a package of fabrics that go together. this is beautiful to me, i really like the fabrics and colors!!!

  7. Log cabin blocks are just one more thing on my list of blocks that I want to make again.

  8. But the colors are so pretty! Sometimes that carries it all very nicely, even without definite contrast. I like those "quiet" quilts. :)

  9. It's not only color saturation but scale that's throwing it off. Do these need to be square? Maybe add some red-violet, or a big print along one side. Keep trying - you'll find something that works!

  10. How much contrast do you really need when making quilted placemats? If you do end up liking the finished product, you can certainly mail them to me. I would love them on my table!!
