All right, is everyone ready for Chapter 2? Let's go!
I made this quilt several weeks ago for my friend’s fundraiser and I have to say I don’t mind one little bit making it again ...
... this time using girly fabrics! The Lizzie Collection by Anna Griffin.
I bought this adorable FQ bundle – on impulse – at Quilt Market Minneapolis 2010 Sample Spree with my younger daughter in mind (let’s just all admit that ANY Sample Spree purchase is impulse!)
I've already used some of the fat quarters - she chose them for this year’s backpack (and of course she took all the pinks!). But I still have plenty of fabric to work with here.
Since I don’t have any full yardage from this fabric line I’m adding a pink - Simplicity by 3 Sisters - for the background. I’ve had it for about 3 years. And I'll need to be a little resourceful for the borders (I have an easy solution for those).
I really love this pink and am feeling just ever so slightly panicked about using it ‘cause, you know, I only have like maybe 5 metres or so left … (give your head a shake, girl! Not like there will never be another pretty pink fabric made ever again!!)
One last thing - I have a little idea floating around in my head involving these yummy trims. If you're at all familiar with Camille's designs you will know where I'm going with it ... :)
