Once the crazy patch squares were complete, I found myself at the fabric store contemplating sashing and binding options. I was equally in love with each combination option. Honestly, this has never happened to me. I have always been able to find one combination that moved me right to the check out line without asking for a second opinion. This time it was different. I decided to enlist the “soon to be owner” and she loved the lime green and deep pink option. At first, I was relieved because that would have been my pick too, but now I feel differently. The taupe and deep pink combination is really becoming. I’ll have to stitch something up for myself incorporating all those tones. It’s just so pretty!

I’m in the mood to share my fabric picks for 2 recent crib size quilt orders. I think both moms did a really great job thinking about colors and themes. Luckily, I was able to find the right fabric, always the tricky part. I’m happy to get started quilting. I’ve been M.I.A. recently due to some major home improvements. Hooray for fresh paint & new hardwood floors! Goodbye to stained yucky carpet, forever. Good Riddance!
Where was I?
Oh yeah, I’m happy to get back to the sewing machine. I also have two 12″ red & aqua squares to donate to my first Quilting Bee. That will be first on the agenda as they are due next week…yikes! So while I chop & stitch, I hope you have fun viewing the arrival of my newest fabrics. Thank heavens for online fabric shops & USPS. There is something magical about little packages full of fabric. Quite yummy!
