Look what I did this morning

Other than my ability to put this on a hanger straight, I think it turned out well. This project has been waiting to be started since Ms. Horner's book came out. I am slow, but once I get started, watch out. It took 2 1/2 hours including the time I took to trace the pattern and cut the bias strips. I made it to display at the shop, hoping to inspire.
When I first saw the pattern in the book, I knew this was the fabric I would use. It's from her garden party line. The bias accents are kona cotton and the way they contrast with the fabric make them worth the time. I really like the way it turned out. Hmmmm, can I get a project done tomorrow?

Aw man! That is so cute! LOVE the fabric! You've got the best fabrics ever for your stuff. But then if I could sew like you I'd invest in the better fabrics too!

I think I'm inspired enough by you to attempt a baby blanket!

So.... watcha doin' for tomorrow? ;-)

Wish me luck!
