Simply Small Sewing

      When life hands you 2 "candy packs" and 1 yard of "Daydream" fabric by Kate Spain you know it's going to end up being cute!
     The colors in this fabric are just so vibrant and pretty!  

     So, as is my usual routine, I'm checking blogs over tea and I read Sherri McConnell's "A Quilting Life   and she's doing a "Simply Small Sew Along" with a monthly parade of different patterns.  I didn't notice it last month but this month the pattern, written by her and available on Craftsy caught my eye big time!    And, coincidentally, Sherri used the same fabric I had out and looking to use!

It's not a hard pattern but I have to admit.....1-1/2 inch squares for the corners of all the prints were trying on my patience!  1-1/2 inch is just too small for me to work with!  Anyhow, I assembled it in 1 afternoon, did a simple wavy quilting on it (which is a favorite of mine right now on small projects) and got the binding on in about an hour while watching NCIS last night.

Here's a picture of the lithe wavy quilting I did before I put the binding on.   

If you're interested, it's not too late to go over to Sherri's blog and you too can make your own topper and join Sherri's parade at the end of the month.

So nice! I've been watching Sherri's projects but have yet to make any. You are inspiring me! (But don't hold your breath, haha)
