Anthropologically speaking, hunter-gatherer societies are made up of people who search for their food rather than grow it. Kind of like we do at the supermarkets every week. Of course, our hunting-gathering doesn't take quite as much effort as it did for our ancestors. Then again, we have to do all that work to earn the money to pay for it, so it's kind of the same, right?
But maybe grocery shopping isn't enough to satisfy the need to hunt and gather. Not for some of us. Not, maybe, for quilters.
Quilters, I believe, are born hunter-gatherers. After all, aren't we always on the hunt for fabrics, gathering them in for the next project? Well, that's what I've been doing recently--I'm on a mission to find what I need for a project I have in mind. I spent my lunch hour today, hunting at a local quilt shop. Usually I'm a really good hunter and today I found a couple things I was looking for, but right now, I'm stuck in my search for one particular piece. Even my internet searches have failed miserably. So I thought I'd ask you for help--because I'm pretty sure YOU'RE a good hunter-gatherer too.
Specifically I'm looking for this fabric:
It's from a line called Stone Cottage by Renee Nanneman for Andover. Fabric number 4014-L. It's a couple years old now. Have you seen it?
I don't need too much--a fat quarter would be perfect. A fat eighth even. If you have any in your stash and would like to trade, just let me know what you'd like to trade for. If you know your local quilt shop has it in stock, please let me know how I can get in touch with them. Email me with any tips you have.
Thank you for your help!
