It actually was pretty easy! Say what you want about social media, but by using facebook we were able to decide on pattern and fabric just by posting pictures in an album on facebook!
First, the pattern. I used Reverse Hopscotch from Vanessa at V and Co. and together we chose a bundle of Piper by Dear Stella. The good news, this fabric was in my stash! So the update on the Fabric Fasting is that I am still good, no weakness! I did have to by 3 meters of flannel for the pieced back, but that is ok with the rules :)
|pieced backing, the cream is super soft flannel|
I made a pieced binding and did simple straight line quilting to finish it off.
Now, here is the thing. For a Lovely Year of Finishes my January goal was to finish my other commission quilt - postage stamps...
Weeeelll, when I made that goal, I did not have this rush baby order. Sooooo, Postage Stamps moves to a February goal and Piper Stars is the winner for January!
So, to make this post all official like, I am linking up with Rebecca for Fabriholics Anonymous since I am keeping to my fabric fasting goals, and with Shanna and Melissa for A Lovely Year of Finishes for the January Linky Party.
How are your January goals going?
