I don't particularly purchase Honey Buns. I'm more of a Jelly Roll/Charm Pack/Layer Cake kinda gal. What is a Honey Bun? It's a roll of 1.5 inch strips of fabrics from a single line. This particular Honey Bun was from "Oh Cherry Oh" by Me & My Sister for Moda.
So, since I didn't remember buying it, and I had no idea what to do with it, it sat on my sewing table, unrolled, for about two weeks. Then, suddenly, it hit me. I was having a baby girl in a few months and if I sewed the strips together it would be the perfect size for a baby quilt.
Like most of my own personal projects, it's been sitting at the shop waiting for its turn on the quilt machine for a while now. I finally got some time last Saturday to quilt for myself (I'm still technically on maternity leave until Tuesday, but I just couldn't help it! I had to quilt something!) so I threw this on and quilted it up. I used a light pink colored thread (So Fine! It's a Girl!) and quilted an all-over flower design. It turned out really great. I got it bound later that night and in the wash, and my baby girl was able to use it over the weekend.
