Flower Fairy baby quilt
As far as baby themes go, I love Winnie the Pooh, Beatrix Potter, and Flower Fairies. I tend to collect the Flower Fairy fabric whenever it is available, then don't use it because the parents think they want something in particular for a quilt. Well, a friend from work and his wife are expecting, and I asked about the nursery the other day to get an idea of what would go with it. He said pink with some green. Immediately I thought of the Flower Fairy fabric done by Rose and Hubble a while back. Michael Miller is the current purveyor, although the Apple Blossom Fairy is in both lines. I had some square panels and a rectangular panel and some coordinates (actually lots of coordinates, at least lots of yardage, a local kid's clothes maker was clearing out their warehouse and they had a pink and a white version of an overal pattern, I went crazy at $2 a yard). The massive quantities are still in my stash, awaiting a Stack and Whack attack to hit me (might be soon). I'll use some of the white colorway for the backing of the quilt top I produced today. I only used two of the square panels, still have a set of four of them for some future project.
