Amelia follows the Yellow Brick Road

Ya know, I have the best husband in the whole wide world, and couldn't ask for a better little boy for a son.  I love my family -- love spending time with them, laughing, playing games, making memories.

I am, however, the only female in the house.  (Nod if you can relate.)

So, whenever the opportunity arises to play with pink girly fabric, I jump on it!

The Amelia line of fabric from Me and My Sister Designs satisfies my need for girly-ness.  Just me and sewing machine creating something oh-so-pink.  Coupled with the simplicity of Terry Atkinson's directions from the Yellow Brick Road pattern, it makes for some lovely quilting time.  Here we have Amelia following that Yellow Brick Road.

This is one of the easiest patterns I've ever made, and I love the randomness of it.  Each time you make this quilt, it turns out differently.  It took only 6 fat quarters plus a yard for the borders.  The pattern includes directions for six different sizes, and this is the smallest "baby" size.  It is a large size for a baby quilt, certainly something the baby could grow into.  

Quite frankly, I am so short, I think this would be an awesome lap quilt for me!  I had to ask the husband to hold it up for this picture!  (Told you he was great!)

The Amelia fabrics and the Yellow Brick Road pattern are now available in The Little Shop.  Get your creative juices flowing with our other themed fabrics including Raggedy Ann and Andy, pirates and sharks, owls, dogs and cats, Amy Butler, and more!  

Back to the sewing machine!  What are you stitching this week?

That sounds like a fun pattern if it comes out differently each time. Yours looks very "girly"! LOL
