I finally got the itch to make another quilt after reading about this one on Crazy Mom Quilts. I loved the look of hers and how easy it seemed to be. (And so far so good! Just imagine it without the wrinkles...)
I used a lot of fabrics that I had in my stash, but did make a fabric run for a few more, since I didn't have enough in this color scheme.
Below is what I started with. The first picture shows the fabrics I definitely wanted/had to use.
These pieces were ones I wasn't too sure about...but ended up using anyway.
I still needed more. So I bought these, which I think
are really pretty.
I threw in a couple Mickey Mouse squares for my kids.
And now that the top is done, I need to get to work basting the quilt sandwich. I am not sure when I'm going to get to it because we have a busy couple weeks ahead of us here, but I'm hoping to do it soon. Trust me, I'll be thinking about it! I actually go to bed thinking about my projects-in-progress. Like, Will this fabric go well with this one? And I also imagine myself doing things like piecing and basting - like actually going through the motions. Do other people do this too??
I'm happy to be linking up here today!
