I finished up Grapefruit Fizz on Sunday and until this evening, I had gotten zero sewing done since. Nope, nada. Not a single stitch.
I think it's because I've decided that it's finally time for me to use this little bundle of Riley Blake Daisy Cottage, and I'm just not truly in love with it. That, and my life has been madness these last few days. One or the other.
In truth, I wasn't absolutely in love with this bundle when I got it, but I found it on sale (isn't that always the way), and I thought, "Well, it's nice, and will make a cute little baby girl quilt." And I went ahead and bought it.
So, I went round and round with myself about what I should do with this fabric, and I decided to make another giant log cabin. They're quick to cut, speedy to sew, and totally stress-free. And it means I can use up this bundle fast, and without a lot of fuss.
I finally got some time at my machine tonight. I spent about 15 minutes cutting and one hour sewing up this baby quilt. One hour, y'all- seriously. That's my kind of quilt top- which, by the way looks way better in person.
I do think it's a sweet little quilt, but still...lesson learned. Only buy fabric if you truly love it. Am I the only one who's done this??
Oh, and one other thing!! I'm sad to say that Vickie, the winner of the FQ bundle giveaway never responded back to me when I emailed her, so wild thing picked another random number. The lucky winner is number 23- Lisa Cox! Lisa, I'll be emailing you soon so I can ship out those FQ's ASAP!
Now, check out some of the awesome link ups from last week!
