Well, there you go! From start to finish. The little sketch is all grown up!
And to celebrate this ready-to-leave-the-nest soft cotton Lily Blossom fabric, we are giving away two fat-quarter bundles with Lily Blossom and 6 of her coordinating patterns. (See photo below.) To win, please write in the comment box below and let us know what you plan to make with your pretty-in-pink fabrics. We will choose two winners randomly on Tuesday, April 10th at noon.
