Not even trying.

Here it is. And just in case you thought that blue tape was some kind of special effect from photo shop.. it's not. It's just blue painter's tape.

It does look a bit like I've given up all pretenses doesn't it? It feels like it. But here it is, in it's corduroy glory. Which corduroy, I don't recommend you. Those borders fit perfectly, no pulling and easing.. but they look like they're the first borders I ever put on. Still its cute enough and it will only be used under a little pink tree, so I'm not worrying it. Too much.

I'd enjoy making this again, the cupcakes and butterflies are completely adorable. I'd use more colors and more embellishments. More stuff. If you'd like to give it a try, Sandy is having a drawing for a free pattern, so head on over there and check it out. And if sewing isn't your game, check out Amy's little cupcake quilt drawing!
So my friends I'm off to work this morning so see you later alligators!

I think it's cute -- and what problem with the borders? I don't see it! (ok, so I see it, but really, it's adorable). And may I just say those Hello Kitty ornaments are adorable?

It must be difficult working with corduroy on a quilt. Those boders are what one of our recent speakers at our guild called "friendly borders". They wave! It is still cute.
