Ok, ok, ok. You were right. I was wrong.
Remember a few months ago when I showed you the fabrics I was contemplating for my FW sashing & posts? All ya'll said the pink didn't look right.
In my defense, the color on my computer screen doesn't quite match the fabric in real life.
So stubborn me went ahead and cut like 100 sashing strips and sewed about 70 of them on ...
... because you guys I really, REALLY wanted my quilt to look like THIS!
This is the cover of one of my favorite Japanese craft books and was largely the inspiration for me choosing Flower Sugar fabric for my FW quilt in the first place.
Isn't it just the happiest quilt you've ever seen? I mean come ON!
But then I laid my partly sashed blocks out on the floor.
And then I started to pout as my pink sashing dream faded before my very eyes.
So I sulked for a bit.
And then I did this ...
Which is why god created Tivo.
And New York style cheesecake.
