Yesterday I told you about our visit to Cotton Creek Mill Quilt Shop in West Branch Iowa….
When we visited I had been doing so good and not buying much at all and the next thing I knew, I had a bag full. Oh my!
I had picked the orange batiks for my mystery quilt and they were long ago cut into. I also picked this one…just because.
and all of that happened because of this.It’s an ABC panel!!! If you’re read the blog for any time, you know I am a sucker for ABC panels.
I think it’s the educator in me.
I love the prints because they are girly but not what I call “pink vomit”. I know that’s not politically correct but I’m not a girly pink girl. I kept thinking if Buck has a girl I want this for the baby quilt. I had no idea what to do with it…but I could come up with something…right?
…and of course they had it in two color ways. Of course I couldn’t decide. Of course I had to get them both….and down the rabbit hole I went.
Can you believe that initially I walked past the display thinking, “Oh pretty colors” and walked on. Oh my.
So…for those of you asking about a baby quilt for the new little grand daughter, it will be out of this fabric. I love it.
I have a strange feeling I’ll have left overs and will likely end up buying a layer cake or something before I’m all finished…looks like my rabbit hole just got larger…but I’m okay with that. I’m going to love this quilt!
