Howdy Happy Quilters! A couple of weeks ago while looking at my cutting table full of scraps from several different fall quilts I came up with a quilt plan to use those scraps. After doing the quilt math it became clear more fabric was needed. With a few clicks of the mouse the fabric was on it's way. When it arrived there was a sweet little surprise attached. How cute are these little buttons!? I've ordered from Simply Love fabrics several times over the last couple of years. It's one of my favorite Etsy shops because they put together adorable fat quarter bundles and have sales often. Browsing the sale bin for end of bolt fabrics is one of my favorite things to do while taking a break.
The original quilt plan was to use plain ole creamy white for the background fabric. Until this darling calico peeked out of the stash cabinet. The selvage is lacking the normal information, all it has is the color dots. But I do remember where it was purchased, Coffee Cup Quilting in Trafalgar, Indiana. So if you live close by and want a sweet little calico pop into Coffee Cup Quilting and tell them "Podunk sent me!".
Another quick quilt, out of my color comfort zone, and I love it! When I say quick I mean quick. The cutting began 6 days ago,I took one day off for shopping and chores. It will come off the frame today, the binding is cut, sewn together and ready to be added. It doesn't get much quicker than that! See you when it's done!
