I wish I was cool enough for the Fat Quarter Shop to ask me to put together a fat quarter bundle. I do love the bundle competitions I've stumbled upon over the last several months.
Well, there's another one, over at a new favorite blog Blossom Heart Quilts.
This time, we're building a bundle from the fabulous collection at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics. I spent a pleasant hour or so, browsing and choosing fabrics.
Here's my bundle, titled "June Cleaver's Bake Sale." The title is important in this contest.
What do you think? I chose the focal fabric first, the brown novelty print. Then I searched around for fabrics that coordinated with it, and fell into the "theme" of my bundle. Pennants, because you have to have pennants at a bake sale. Pearls, because, well, it's June Cleaver, right? Gingham and polka dots are so retro. In fact, there is a dress that Lucille Ball wears that is polka dotted and I want it.
I like my little bundle. I hope, I hope, I hope I win. I really struggled, because I thought I should pick fabrics that the judges would like. But in the end, I went with what I like. If I'm going to win a bundle of fabric, I want it to be fabric I like.
