Earlier this year my older daughter learned to stick maple seeds on her nose. As happens with every child who learns this trick, much excitement and laughter ensued, and it's now one of those cherished mirrored-childhood memories of mine. Shortly after her discovery, I stumbled upon the Dear Stella Piper line, fell in love with the Airplanes print, and bought up a FQ set to create with. Then when I realized Mrs. Santa would be making new doll quilts, I just knew I had to use Piper for them! My dad is making a doll bunk bed (using this Ana White hack as the inspiration), and I have a sophisticated/modern/fun aesthetic planned for the bedding. (In my mind I see my daughter running her hands over the fabric twenty years from now and remembering her discovery while thinking how nice it is that I captured the memory in an heirloom, but I might be getting a bit ahead of myself, seeing as I only just received the package with the extra fabric I need to flesh out my plans for the bedding!)
So in a few weeks when the beds are built and painted, and the bedding is neatly tucked in, I'll share some completed pics, but in the meantime, I have to give a little shout out to Moona Fabrics. The local store I'd bought the FQs from was out of yardage when my original plans ballooned, so I went Etsying to find the rest and came across this great fabric shop. Sue at Moona sent me an extra FQ with my purchase (serendipitously the one zigzag I didn't have yet!), and her great prices and pictures encouraged me to pick up a few extras while I was there, too. I *almost* skipped the Sonnet, but tossed it in the cart at the last second - oh, my goodness! If you haven't seen it up close, you have no idea what you're missing! It's much more rich and vivid in person. The holiday fabric will eventually be made into throws for my couch, but this pink is getting squirreled away for some glorious far off pinnacle project : )
