My order from Kerri arrived today… a beautiful bundle of Heather Ross’ Far Far Away Chapter II. I couldn’t decide on a single colorway so I got a bit of it all. Initially I was a little nervous about using the fabric for quilting since Heather calls it a “bottom weight” fabric, which means it is not a soft quilting cotton (it’s a linen-cotton blend). Now that I have it in hand, I think it will work fine. Yeah, it’s not super soft, but my guess is that with each wash it will get softer.
Right now this stack of fabrics will be used to set the tone for the next big girl room as a full sized quilt. I have plenty of time to make the quilt since we won’t need to convert the nursery to a big girl room for another two years.
Not an original design on my part, but I think Alissa’s design would be a perfect way to showcase the illustrations in Chapter II, don’t you?
