I’m not sure what happened to January, but one good thing about it almost being February is that it’s my month for the Twelve Square quilting bee!!! Squeal!!!!
These little stacks will be making their way to the other Twelve Square Bee-ers very soon, and I couldn’t be more excited to see what becomes of them.
I tried not to overthink the fabric choices, as I love doing. I walked through the enormity of fabric depot, took deep breaths and waited for the right fabric to yell out “I’m The One!!”
Well, there were many waves and whistles and downright brazen displays of fabric-y goodness, but in the end I went with this simple amy butler print combined with a pretty robin egg’s blue solid. Props to me for not going pattern crazy, as I also love doing, and for not having a meltdown in the middle of FD [patting myself on the shoulder]. I added a graphic-y green, a plum-y floral and thrifted pinky-plum solid from my stash as well as those vintage pink florals. I think those little pinks would look cute nestled inside log cabins, but haven't decided if I want to theme it out yet... hmm...
Feb is good for other reasons too: one month closer to spring, the kids’ Bdays, my Bday and a new edition of Blue Yonder’s Book of Days, which we’re enjoying immensely! (more on that soon!)
Happy weekend, all!!!
