My goals were set at the end of last year. The biggest one for me was using a lot of the large pieces of hard to use fabrics I had hiding in the closet. Some of it was sitting by itself and some of it had a buddy or two to go with it. I didn't want to use them because it was either to hard (or so I thought) or I really didn't like it. But I have challenged myself to get these fabrics made into pretty quilts. Here are my first three this year.
This pink floral fabric has a hard to match minty green that I found enough of to make a quilt. I am not used to making a 2 fabric quilt, but I am pleased with how this turned out. I did a lot of math to figure out how to not purchase any fabric, but I ended up buying a yard of the green because I was short. Almost all stash!
These fabrics were already in a pile in my closet. I don't remember why they were there, but they had been there a while. 100% stash!
On the Square Irish Chain
Here is one of those floral prints in my stash I don't like. But I was determined to use it AND make it pretty! Two marble prints I bought last year make this irish chain stand out. It's all stash.
My goal is to make 20 of these types of quilts, hopefully using all stash to do it. I have 2 more of these quilts started and another finished. I'd say the Year of the Stash is well under way!
