For a quick fix…Winnie and Friends to the rescue

How’s your week been? This week has been a very wonderful one…thanks to you all for visiting and for your lovely comments. I believe it was a very successful blog hop, I can’t say how happy I am that I participated. There were so many great advice in the comment and I’ll work towards compiling them all, it just might help someone!

I’ve been a bit under the weather and it was such a push (I contemplated requesting for a change of date) to get my post ready for the blog hop. Consequently, I’ve been too fatigued to do a lot of sewing. At the same time, I was feeling the need to make something but not looking forward to cutting and piecing 😧.

Anyway, remember those Disney panels I got awhile back from fabric.com? I probably have about 12 of them left. I pulled one out for a very quick baby quilt. All I needed to do was baste, quilt and bind! The good part is that it’s small enough to baste on my sewing table as I wasn’t up for all the crawling on the floor…yikes!

I couldn’t decide which way to go with the quilting. In part I thought it might be nice to quilt out the patterns or straight line following that stripped border. In the end I settled for some geometric free motion quilting. This was inspired by the “happy ending for happy ending” post on one of the blogs I follow tierneycreates.com.
