Have I mentioned I have a wonderful husband? Last week he came home from work, took the cranky baby out of my arms and told me to go in my sewing room, lock the door, and have “mommy quiet time”, while he proceeded to feed the kids dinner, bathe them, and get them all in bed.
I think he could tell I was teetering on the edge of crazy…which was true. So I stuck my headphones in and started a new quilt.
I forgot how much I love this pattern/tutorial I made 4 years ago. It uses fat quarters or 1/4 yards, and goes together so quick. I stacked all of my fat quarters and cut this out super fast, and had all of my blocks pieced in no time for a throw size.
The floral print by Leah Duncan is amazingly beautiful! It goes with so much of the fabric I already have, so it was really fun to pull fabrics for this quilt from all different lines.
“Mommy quiet time” was just what I needed that night…and I was refreshed and ready to fetch snacks and wipe up the who-knows-what on the floor for the billionth time this summer. :)
