I am loving this soft pretty fabric by Poppie Cotton lately, so I used some of my scraps of her Prairie Sisters line.
I try not to think too hard when doing QAYG projects, I just grab a pile of scraps and place them together. Often I’m surprised at how great the finished project looks! And I love how unique they are each time I make one!
