A few months ago, I was lucky enough to receive a lovely parcel in the mail from none other than Kate Spain herself! I was rewarded with such loot after being involved in the Kate Spain Blog Hop hosted by Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts. Apart from the fact it had Kate's actual address on the parcel and then a lovely hand written note inside, I was very excited to find it contained a Honey Honey jelly roll as well as a charm pack of Sunnyside. After thanking Kate profusely by every means of social media I could, I put the loot away safely for when I found something lovely to do with it.
Fast forward to last Wednesday night when I was talking to the husband about Christmas presents. I had a bit of a light bulb moment and said "If I get time, I'll make a throw quilt for _______ ". (Keeping that bit anonymous for obvious reasons!).
Thursday night, Andrew arrived home from work to a started quilt top - and promptly laughed himself silly. "If you have time" he says……
By Friday afternoon, I sent him a photo of this…...
The Honey Honey jelly roll in all its glory!
I knew I wanted to use it for this project, but had no idea what sort of a pattern to use? So I googled and Pinteresteddddddd until my eyes were falling out of my head. I then decided to just go with the flow (sound familiar?) and basically ended up with this!
Andrew chose the green for the background, but I added a 1" white border around the blocks before adding the green sashing - SOOOOO glad I did! I think it make the blocks sing :)
So. Another Christmas present almost ticked off my non-existent list of things to do.
