Sunday Stash & a quilt update

Todays Sunday Stash.... little monkeys from Amitie. As per usual with my fabric shopping habits, I have nothing specific in mind for it. I just bought it because I thought it was cute!

Do you remember the gender neutral baby quilt dilemma? I just happened to mention to my girlfriend that I was planning on making her a gender neutral gift before the baby was born, as she wouldn't open the secret envelope with the answer inside! She then informed me that she actually love it if I wouldn't mind waiting until the baby was born, because she would prefer if I could make something specifically for a boy or a girl. So my plan for using the fabric that she had purchased and given to me went out the window.

After having a re-think, I'm now going to use it to make a cushion for her 2 year old son's birthday in March. I've booked in to do a cushion making course at Amitie, so I'm now going to make a patchwork cushion panel using the clown fabric, before the class. I'm thinking the clowns, red, yellow, and the stripes will be perfect a little boy.

Tune in for the winner of my giveaway later on tonight!

You know, being the procrastinator that I am, I'd be breathing a sigh of relief that there was a time extension on the baby quilt! But I somehow think you're a bit more productive than me :)

I love the monkey fabric. Its really cute. I can't wait to partake in a little stash building at Amitie next weekend!

Good decision, the big brother needs some attention when his rival arrives! The fabrics will be great for a little boy.
