Two words that make my heart sing. That name can instantly make me forget that there is anything in the world but perfect happiness and beauty, and makes me grateful for the little things--like overdraft protection. If you've checked out the prices you know it will sink your bank account. But who can resist those bright, vintage-y florals and cute, kitschy items?
I recently made a quilt for my bed, and couldn't decide on what fabric to use for the pillows, so I ordered some Cath Kidston pillowcases. Well now the pillowcases don't match the quilt, and I didn't want to pay $125 for a matching duvet, so in my infinite wisdom I decided to make a quilt in Cath Kidston colors, that in the end (as we all know) will end up being far more expensive than if I would've just paid for the duvet. Why does quilting cost so much?!!
But anyway, to make sure my colors matched exactly, I used my Moda Bella swatch book to match everything up, placed an order, and then this week this beautiful rainbow arrived!! Isn't it so pretty?

Now the question is
If Cath Kidston were a quilter, what kind of quilt would she make?
Linking up with Mollie Sparkles' Sunday Stash which is being hosted this week by the hilariously realistic Work-in-Progress Girl. I just love her candor and sarcastic sense of humor:)
