stash happy


Here is my progress on the slice of my stash quilt. (click on image to see the detail)
I have a bunch of greens to sew together yet and then I have to figure out how to pull this together in a quilt top. Did you notice how pink heavy my stash is? 2 lines of pink to half a line (if that) for every other color. I might need to go fabric shopping to evenly round out the stash. :)

This looks amazing Amandajean! :) I can't wait to see how you put it all together.

Oh no, fabric shopping! What a shame:)

Looking inspiring with all those yummy fabrics...
Oh no! What hardship! A trip to the fabric store? Torture! tee hee
Thanks for showing this work in progress. I love seeing what you're stitching up.

Wonderful! I love pink heavy.
Wouldn't shopping defeat the purpose of a stash quilt? Wait, no, if you buy fabric it becomes part of your stash, right?

monica said...

oh yes... definitively you need MORE fabric!!!

Roxanne said...

Great excuse to buy some fabric and once bought, it’s a part of your stash again! You will come up with a great idea to pull the slices to a quilttop! I can picture it!

Louise said...

This looks really great-- and what a wonderful idea.

Wonderful colors in your stash quilt.

Thimbleanna said...

They all look so lovely lined up like that! I definitely agree -- a little shopping is in order. After all, it's Halloween and you're low on oranges!

I love that a project that is supposed to help one reduce her stash has turned into one that requires some fabric shopping! I so understand!

Sarah said...

Oh, I can't wait to see this one when it's finished! You have such an impressive stash.

Linda said...
