With all those pretty reds and blues I’m fairly certain she designed this line just for me…maybe.
I used the pattern Fat Quarter Friday, which whips up quick and is perfect for fabrics like these with a lot of white backgrounds to mix in.
This is the Crib size (I make generous crib sizes!) of the pattern which worked perfect for the fat eighths I had. The pattern calls for fat quarters, but to use fat eighths you just cut half the pieces you normally would for a fat quarter and use more fat eighths.
This fabric is so lovely and is in stores now.
Since my oldest turned 12 a couple of weeks ago we are in the midst of moving my sewing room down stairs into the living room that we barely use, so my boys will have their own bedrooms. I’m kind of bummed to give up my dedicated sewing room, but I’m also guessing I will probably get a lot more sewing done since I’ll be where the action is. I feel like I passed into a phase of life where my kids are old enough to not get into the sewing stuff…and I can actually leave my things out without as much worry (except Jane with tiny scissors…see this post).
I’ll take some photos when things get settled!
