This was an on-going project to use up my blacks. Nothing easier than a stack quilt and most was done as a leader/ender. It really sat for so long as I was debating on whether to use a color (which color?) for the sashing, but in the end I kept it to just white and I like it. I'll us a scrappy black binding to tie it all together.
He thinks he is my next b/w project. Moe just wanted to be near me all day and it didn't really matter what I pulled out on the table - he was on it. Finally he crammed himself into my lites tote and napped most of the day away while at my elbow.
I received a new gifted bag of scraps and rather than stuff them away, I processed this down into three new projects to be worked on thru the Summer.
One being Temecula Quilt Co - Summer Scraps. I'm hoping this one will deplete all the scraps in the gifted bags yet to be gleened thru. A lot of little blocks, a lot of little scraps, a lot of love - this is so my kind of quilt!
There were a lot of strattas in that bag that I pulled aside. I managed to wrangle that lite from the tote before Moe settled in and cut twenty 6.5" squares. The strattas will be cut into 1.5" strips to make some blocks that will make a debute later.
Dawn @ SewYouQuilt2 has a challenge using a Moda Bake Shop pattern -
Step Down. I know, finish two flimsies and start four new projects - but it makes me happy. The pattern is written for pre-cuts, but I hit the scraps. The only tote of color I have (other than blue that I have enough blue quilts right now) that I could cut large squares was the orange. Not my favorite color to use, but someone will love this quilt - and we do quilt for others.
Go stitch the weekend away,
