Sunday Stash #77

November is my turn for sending out bundles of fabric to fellow Bee Imaginative Block Swappers.   Unfortunately I've tried hard to pretend that time was on my side, and now find myself bundling fabrics rather late.


Twelve bundles of fabric strips have been rotary cute, all in a red/white color palette with a splash of orange and pink, and they are just about ready for shipping.  One bundle for each swap participant.  All fabrics are from stash, which in itself is always satisfying.


The plan is for each fabric bundle to be sewn into a large scale log cabin block.  I've made two log cabin blocks myself to gauge how much fabric to send.  The blocks measure 15 1/2 inches as they are.


My vision is to eventually join these large blocks together separated by a wide strip of white sashing fabric.  Eventhough log cabin blocks are a traditional design I do imagine that the overall look of the quilt will be modern, simple and fresh. 

Thanks for stopping by, and as always enjoy Sunday!

  9. The combination of colours give a very soft feeling. I find it often difficult to use reds and oranges, as it often gives a very hard effect, even combined with whites.

    Anyways. I think the squares are looking great!
