Stash Report - Week 32

One last new quilt store before I leave Virginia...Kelly Ann's in Warrenton. Very small but very quaint and friendly.

I bought the bottom fabric, Timber by Jessica Levitt. I've never heard of it, it's not at all what I typically stash, but I had to have it. There is zero logic to my fabric choices sometimes...

The top fabric is from Joann's and for my Wrapped in Hope quilt - the kid requested Marvel heroes. I have some Spiderman, but I'm having the worst luck finding Avengers! I know where I can get it online, so I'll try one more local store before giving up.

And then there's my reward for cutting my sister's Yellow Brick Road - she chose the size for 24 fat quarters and I got the six leftovers! Guess which color my niece doesn't want...?

I also have the cutting leftovers...a whooping 1.25" from each FQ. Not even enough for a log cabin strip!

And in the finishes, one teeny tiny finish...

I already counted out the top. The backing was 120" wide, so it doesn't look that impressive on the outs. But the 450" of binding helps!

  1. What a finish! It must feel great to get a big project completed.

  2. nice reward as long as you like gray! ;-) Congrats again on Big Blue - it looks great. What an accomplishment!

  3. I love Big Blue. Great job on getting so much accomplished. Lucky you to get stuck with all the fun grey fabrics!

  4. Great looking quilt - congrats on the finish.

    Mix blacks and white with the grays and add a pop of color, like the red, and it would be a great scrappy quilt. Of course, you have to find a pattern, but that's a fun task.


  5. Big Blue turned out beautifully. Love the "comic" fabric, very cute, the Timber fabric is pretty too. Sometimes you just have to go with instinct when it comes to fabric choices.
