Sunday Stashbusting Report...
It was a slow week for quilting, in spite of the fact I was on Spring Break. I did knit dishcloth, quilt a customer quilt and I'm sure there were other things...the week went too quickly.
Today I cut fabric for a twin size Lucky Star quilt from Atkinson Designs. (The picture came from their website.) This will be a high school graduation gift my daughter's friend. All the fabric came from stash and is primarily batiks and hand dyes, with a few other oldies thrown in. They are mostly bright colors...lots of reds, oranges, blues, yellows and greens. So, that is 30 fat quarters out of my stash today, as well as 3 yards of white background fabrics for total of 10.5 yards of fabric.
When you cut the fat quarters for this quilt, there is a strip and some other good size pieces left over. I'm thinking that since I'm closing in on my 300th post, it might be time for a giveaway. What do you think? This is post 292, so I've got a little time to gather things up, but I'm quite sure the leftovers from this quilt will be included. I can think of a paper pieced pattern that may be in there too, and maybe a treat from Reily's Candy here in town.
Stay tuned and I'll see what I can come up with!
