In the Bee a Brit Stingy bee, lovely Emily has asked for log cabin blocks. She is going to add them to the ones already made by her other bee. She is going to have one massive and beautiful quilt once it is all pieced.
This log cabin block was a challenge of a 'fabricy' kind.
I quickly realised that my stash has very few blues and even fewer Low Volume fabrics. Emily didn't want any repeats in either block and my stash was challenged on this one. Fortunately I had a few pieces of Liberty blues left over from my 'hipBees fabric' that is being used by the hipBees, as I am the February queen bee.
The low volume fabrics weren't happening, so I texted Trudi as I knew that she was teaching near me today. Trudi kindly raided her fabric to bail me out. I met her this lunchtime and we furtively did a fabric deal. She is an excellent and generous fabric dealer and this enabled me to finish both of Lucy's blocks.
I think that low volume fabric stashing is in order…
