When I first started purchasing fabric to make "something" I was not confident in my fabric selection so I was a big fan of the fat quarter bundles. Honestly I'm not sure how this one made it into my shopping cart because I do NOT like green. Anyway, I bought it and placed it in the "I'll make this into something someday" pile. This pile is otherwise known as "something will jump out and say "make me" and this fabric will come dancing along behind it" And then....when I get to working on some projects, I get tired of them and just need a break so no matter what I am working on, I stop. Then I peruse my craft room and my patterns and jump into a new project, that isn't on the list. Does that happen to you?
So one day....I just started cutting into this, just to do something else. The original bundle of fabrics had a light green and a whimsical print, that I was not so fond of, so I posted and asked my blog readers for some input and thanks to them, made a couple of substitutions. The idea that just a dozen fat quarters can be cut and made into something so neat makes me really love this pattern.
I stitched this up for a fun throw with no other purpose then to cuddle up - so on that front - mission accomplished!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the many many other entries in the Blogger's Quilt Festival and many thanks to Amy and the wonderful sponsors for this event!
