Also thanks for the info about the weights of fabric you used, and putting the bit of batting into stabilize. Very clever, and it seems to have worked well. And, I love how nicely you finished off the back.
There is a really cute fabric store in Wallingford called Fabric Crush that has a lot of bright, mod-ish prints, Amy Butler sort of stuff and fun vintage remakes. I went up there the other day to visit with a friend and found totally cute fabric for an apron that I have promised her. And there is a cool looking yarn shop right next door.
