Sunday Stash, A Flimsy, A Rant

Birds and Bees Baby

The Birds and Bees Baby flimsy is all done! To say I'm pleased with how it turned out would be an understatement. It's so charming in it's pretty pink sugar-y sweetness, and the green helps it from reaching sugar coma stage. :) Pink and green are one of my all.time.favorite. color combos.
In case you're wondering if I jumped the gun, choosing pink, yep, I sure did. But, mom thinks it's a girl, and I just have a vibe that it is, too. I've set it aside for quilting for when I get my Bernina back from service.
Meanwhile, I've had this jelly roll and yardage kicking around in the stash. I decided to just make something already. The collection is called Palazzo by Greta Lynn for Benartex. The fabric has a great feel to it.
Earmarked for the hubs
I had envisioned a quilt from Jelly Roll Quilts, but when I showed the pattern to Mr. Fussy Pants (aka the hubs) he said it's too busy. Fine. Be that way. Now I'm leaning towards a rail fence on point or some kind of linear stripe-y design. Something easy to piece 'cause that's all I'm in the mood for on the back up machine.
And, off topic, but I'm going to rant a bit here. Last night while coming home from graveyard shift, our son was rear-ended by a drunk driver. He's OK, and his car is damaged but drivable.  He was stopped at a red, and she hit the truck behind him doing 45mph, and the truck then hit him. And, if you're like me, and already livid at this imbecile's complete and utter stupidity, she'd called her mother who in turn shows up at the accident scene, also inebriated, and gets hauled off to jail with the daughter. We're counting our blessings that everyone was unhurt. But... seriously?!?!


Linking up to Molli Sparkles Sunday Stash!


  1. Heather....I'm in the same mood of sewing. I'm jelly roll sewing this week. Do you have a link to your pattern by chance??? I found a quick one of MOda I'm using for one jelly roll that will turn into two baby quilts...but have another jelly roll that will be a lap quilt for me. :)
    DRUNK DRIVERS....I won't begin my rant! LOL!! Thank goodness your son is okay. :)

  2. Glad to hear that everyone was ok. Very nice quilt top! Hope you have a great day

  3. Glad to hear your son was okay. Glad to hear they hauled both mom and daughter off...Think they need stricter DD laws.
    Your baby quilt is sweet! I like the colors in the JR.
