I was able to use the red of this line in my first block for the Cottage Quilting Bee. It wasn’t something I would have picked up in the store. I fell in love with it, and as you can see a bit of it made it into my stash.
I’m going to try to stick with Sunday Stash as my reminder that I really don’t need anymore fabric, and that there will always be something out there that I must have.

It truly is baby soft. The mushrooms are surprisingly from Joanns. The picture does no justice. I wanted this blanket for myself.
Hope you’re having a good Sunday!
