Log cabin quilts are enduring in popularity, and make great adaptations for counted canvas projects!

Teaching objectives:

  • Experience different textures of cotton and metallic braids
  • Investigate the structure of stitches, to allow stitchers to achieve a natural stitching rhythm without constant referral to the stitch diagrams
  • Explore analogous color schemes

Ablaze was designed with analogous color schemes in mind, in a modified log cabin quilt pattern. A corner element provides additional interest to the design.

Stitchers have a choice of three color ways – Ablaze Fire, in shades of yellow, orange, red and red violet; Ablaze Blue Blazes, in shades of purple, blue and turquoise, or Ablaze Embers, in shades of olive, gold, magenta and brown.

Stitches include oval Rhodes, layered crescents, Bargello, herringbone squares, Maltese interlace, crescents, Bargello swirls, waffle, medallion, layered cross, sprat’s heads, and double herringbone variation.
