Before we welcomed our "little one" to the world, not only did I go through an extreme nesting phase (even the basement had to be in order), but I went through a big sewing project phase. Finding a new project almost daily to distract me from the current project that I was working on. I ran across this free pattern from fabric and quilt designer, Denyse Schmidt, and I knew I just couldn't resist... my scrap pile was calling my name to transform their tiny remains into yet another something for our upcoming arrival.
One of my all time favorite collections, still to this day, is Garden Party from fabric designer Anna Maria Horner. I mixed it with leftover scraps from Heather Bailey, Amy Butler, and Tula Pink. I love the mix-match patchwork squares and the variety of patterns and hope that our little guy will love cuddling and slobbering all over his colorful "Scottie" friend.
To finish "little Scottie" off, I mixed it with a deep olive wool and vintage buttons from a collection that my Mom had passed on to me. It's like this button was just made for this project... I love it when that happens!
I have to admit though, after working with so many little squares, I have a new found respect for quilters. How do they manage without pulling out their hair... I simply do not know.
