Big Girl Bed - Fabric

Fabric shopping with a 3 year old was interesting. Mostly L ran around the store pointing out all of the animal fabrics, and showing me how high she can jump.  But when I showed her the completed quilt sample of the pattern that I'm going to make her, she got very quiet. My talkative niece was speechless. Yup. I think she likes the pattern.  :)

We picked out all of the fabric, and it's currently sitting in my studio, per-washed and folded. Ready to cut.  Here's a peek at the fun fabric we choose.

1. FreeSpirit - California Dreamin, Mailu by Jeanean Morrison
2. Moda - Meadow Friends by Deb Strain
3. Moda - Central Park by Kate Spain
4. Robert Kaufman - Mixmasters, Fizz by Patrick Lose
5. FreeSpirit - California Dreamin, Palm Springs by Jeanean Morrison
6. Riley Blake Designs - Feeling Groovy by Cynthea Sandoval "Doodlebug Design"

My SIL told L that "Auntie Kat is going to cut up all these fabrics, and them sew them back together into a quilt for you".  L just looked at me and smiled. I can't wait to get started on this one!

Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them.
