Liberty Cabin!

All is going to plan - just one trial block done and I think I will really enjoy making this quilt just for me! Inspiration has come from Miss Print and this project features in Moda Bakeshop. Thank you Kaye! I have been wanting to make a quilt very similar to one of my very first quilts and now is just the right time and right place. Beautiful Liberty - my Pfaff takes to it beautifully, too. I have ordered an Accuquilter so let's hope it loves Liberty too - I'll space out my shopping sprees and treasure every little tiny scrap! Applique with Kaffe and piecing with Liberty - what a way to go! - I'm still so taken with the bright, clear Repros - I have really established myself fabricwise. I'm yearning to try some felted wool - I will be so happy when the opportunity arises!

All the centres will be the same - the red being very traditional representing 'the hearth of the home'.
The light print is little bicycles - as cute as! - I love whimsy as you know! There will be borders and that will be fun choosing the print!
Oh, I know, I have garbled on about fabrics - you see, I really haven't achieved much lately - time is not kind to me! Whoohoo - off to gorgeous Avalon for a four-day retreat tomorrow with some of my best, fun friends. I must be totally packed up by the day's end.
Not without sending blessings to all New Zealanders - such tragedy - 'there but for the grace of God go I'- we worked in the mining industry for thirty years and now our children are following in our footsteps!

Different to have a pinwheel in a log cabin but a very good idea.
