Sunday Stash #17: Grey Bundle

Last week,  both Ashley and Kate commented on pulling great stash fabric. Thank you and this post is for you guys 🙂

I love fabric!! My husband would definitely agree with me, when I say “I am an addict and proud of it”. I started off without much of a stash, but over the last 6-8 months that has been rectified.  Now, one of my favorite things to do is pull fabrics and put them together and see how different they can be with fabrics not from the same line.

One of my favorite core colors is grey, it is so versatile. You can use it

  • As a main color – this is an example with my Lotta Aerial quiltLottaAerialQuilt
  • or you can use it as a background fabric, whether it be a pattern/low volume
    Kea_InsideView
  • or as a solid, neutral

I recently bought a variety of grey fabrics and I thought I would share my bundle. These will be a staple in upcoming quilts.

Finish it up Friday{05.07.2013}: Baby Quilt top

First off, it’s my sister’s birthday today. Happy Birthday Sis.

The other big news today is that I finished my first baby quilt top (that now makes 1 x mini quilt, and 1 x twin quilt top)…yippee !!!

Simply Stars
I love V and Co. “Simply” charm packs. They are so bright and colorful. The designs are very geometric but still whimsical, perfect for a baby quilt. The other great thing about this quilt, is it came together really quickly. Each star block took me about 30 minutes, and each 9 block took about 15 minutes. I love that it was so quick and easy.

After much practice, I think I finally have the knack for matching square blocks. I am very proud how aligned everything is. I was able to take some quick photos this afternoon which is very lucky as we have had thunderstorms/rain every afternoon for the last two weeks. Today is perfect weather!!!
