Time for some happy sewing! I decided due to some recent comments by a certain guest blogger/family member that it might be time to set aside the dark Civil War Reproduction fabrics for some cheerier stuff. It's ok. I get it.
Yesterday morning I pulled out a couple of Schnibbles and Cotton Way patterns with the idea of whipping up a quick table topper in spring colors. Paganini by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company won out. For fabric, I had a harder time deciding. I fondled a fat eighth bundle of Ruby by Bonnie and Camille, and played around with a couple of other older collections that have been sitting around for way too long. In the end, I chose a layer cake of Breakfast at Tiffany's by Fig Tree.
While Eva watched Dora the Explorer, I got all my fabric cut out, and while she napped, the blocks practically made themselves. By the time she woke up, this is how far I had progressed. Today I hope to get the lattices and borders on and maybe even do some quilting.
This happy project was a mood changer!
And so is this.
