Another trip to Perth

We drove to Perth on Saturday morning taking a few detours due to the fire. Driving back last night near town I couldn't believe how lucky it was that some houses were still there (and so unlucky that some are gone). So many burnt out farms and forests. I hope that is the last one for the summer.
I've been making some quarter log cabins. Simple and fun.
My sister brought this back from London. I think this could be the prettiest piece of Liberty ever.

i've never seen quarter log cabins before, can't wait to see what they look like in the finished project. You've got a lovely sister to bring that fabric back for you.

Hi Kate
Its so sad when people lose their homes, did the fires affect of your crafty friends? Just asking, because I'm sure we could all contribute to help rebuild their fabric stash.
That Liberty fabric is just divine :)

For better or worse, Kaufman is coming out with a line called "London Calling" which are Liberty knock-offs. I just looked at them this morning, so I recognized one:

Yours does look a little prettier though.
