I actually didn’t think I would purchase any Briar Rose by Heather Ross except for some of the purple, but there it was on the shelves at The West Seattle Fabric Company, I’m talking the full collection, and I found my self instantly drawn to it.

I can’t say that I’ve ever purchased fabric from Windham Fabrics, but they certainly got this one right! The hand is so soft that all will dream of putting it into something for a baby or small child and then there’s those things I’ll have to find for myself.
I’m already imagining some quilted baskets lined with the strawberries or maybe this sweet honeycomb.
I’ve already stuck some of these little guys into a quilt top that I hope to show soon.
But I’m trying hard to not start new projects, real hard.
