A Package from Burma!
These are Kachin fabrics from Burma, lightweight, exquisite cottons that come in 2-yard or 3-yard pieces. Please enlarge the photo and see the beautiful weave of the green fabric. I left the tags on prominently because they are interesting, too. Such a welcome surprise! And she's threatening to give me some of her scraps when she returns for a short stateside stay this winter before their next posting -- in India!
You can see some sections of ties with their pinned rails in this picture. But that's not what this photo is about, really.
At Guild last month we were each given the cutest darn jelly roll, hand produced and assembled by one of our members (who, as far as I know doesn't blog, which is a pity because she'd likely produce a mighty fine blog) and we were given the assignment of making "modern log-cabin type blocks" that would finish at 6" using those fabrics and fabrics we would add that matched the colors.
I grabbed trusty old Tula, and cut three blocks that I Leader-Endered along with the track and then made up one of my own. There's enough fabric left for prolly one more, and I'll be getting to that later today.
