Don’t Forget to Look at the Stars

In warm weather I linger outside at night and look at the stars. In winter it is often so cold and cloudy my thoughts are: get inside and get the lights on. The problem is I’m such a creature of habit that after months of winter, I forget to start looking up at the sky. So I’m making myself a few reminders during the cold season, so I’ll remember to stop and admire the night sky when it gets warm. Of course, I’m a quilter, so my reminders are written in fabric.

Wee Wandering Some More

Okay, I’m officially on a Wee Wander, Sarah Jane, Michael Miller binge. I’m working on my third baby quilt from this fabric line. I have fabric for 2 more quilts impatiently waiting. Something about the sweetness in the designs just inspires me.

The quilt I’m sharing with you this week is called Fairy Tale Woods. The fabric is called Wander Woods. It has trees, children, deer, horses all in a humble presentation that is so enchanting. When I saw the fabric I wanted to somehow stay there, inside the story. It occurred to me that if one was going to stay in Wander Woods, one would need a house to live in. And then I thought, the only way to stay in Wander Woods forever would be to be a fairy. So I made the fairy houses so the fairies could stay in Wander Woods.

Here is the quilt:

Fairy Lights Baby Quilt

I love Sarah Jane’s new fabric line, Wee Wander. It has such a sweet, innocent magic! There are fireflies, tame woodland animals, little children playing and room for imagination. So what did I see when I held a yard of her Tree Lights fabric? I imagined fairy lights up close, so that’s what I put in the quilt, 47 of them.
