November was Charlene‘s month in the Fat Stash Bee. She asked us to follow a tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman for it. It consist of log cabin with a center piece and 4 rings in 4 different colors. She wanted the rings in red, pink, aqua and white. I received an FQ in aqua and a small piece of red fabric to use for the rings. The other fabrics were coming from our stash. For the center piece, the tutorial was suggesting to fussy cut a square from a “picture print” fabric. Happily, I had the same one as in the tutorial: Alexander Henry Starling fabric. It was some remnants from my own project in the Fat Stash Bee. And Charlene seemed to like it.
I had to do a stop at a fabric shop to buy some pink fabric because my stash is lacking of this color. Probably, because I’ve mainly done projects for boys until recently. Anyway, I found a Jelly roll of mixed fabrics all in pink. So, that was pretty handy. I hope that Charlene will like my selection of fabrics and the 2 blocks I’ve sewn for her. So here they are.
Next step, basting and quilting. I was hesitating on whether I should hand or free motion quilted. But, I finally opted for the second choice. I chose to use a grey thread similar to the coal Kona cotton. Let see what I can came up with!
