Sunday Stash – August 27, 2017

The Albuquerque Modern Quilt Guild had their annual de-stash sale on earlier this month.  I really should have bought a table to sell some stuff and not gone shopping, but alas, shop I did.

I couldn’t resist this really cute pack of fabric pieces and scraps.

Aren’t these bugs in the jars cute?

These turtles are my favorite!

 

I’m baking up a plan to use up all these lovelies.  Should be a cute one!

Sunday Stash – Tabby Road

I had to hang in with my Fat Quarter Shop Monthly Modern Bundle until it was Tabby Road month.  This is my first Tula Pink – I just fell in love with the cute little cans.

Here is the whole bundle I received.  I really like the pink cat eye one too.

More of the bundle:

I find this kitty a bit frightening:

I think I’m going to do a cat quilt using HSTs.  I don’t want this to be a huge quilt, but I want the HSTs to be big enough to show off what is going on in the fabric.  This is an early sketch:

Something like that.  I’ll keep working on it!

Sunday Stash – Me + You Batiks and Bee Blocks

This week I was pulling out fabrics to make my Bee Block for by Bee Inspired International Bee group (we have a blog here).  Sue, our February Queen, asked for a monochromatic block, so I found myself pulling out my Me + You batiks.  I actually found I had bought 2 bundles of this stuff – I loved all the colors and the dots and just kept buying more of it.

I pulled out enough fabrics to make a few blocks, so I was considering making an extra few of the February blocks just for fun.  But rather than just make a few blocks I wouldn’t know what to do with, I had a better idea – why not make each of the monthly Bee Blocks out of my Me + You bundle?  I have a bunch of bundles I need to use, I’ve really like both of the Bee Blocks so far this year, and at the end of the year I’ll have a cool colorful stack of blocks.  I LOVE this idea!!

So along with my February Bee block, which I sent off to Sue in Australia (there is some Blueberry Park in here too):

I made another block for myself (I had to size it down from 12.5″ finished to 12″ finished, but that wasn’t too bad):

and went back and remade the January block out of the Me + You bundle:

Here they are together:

I think they look great together, and I can’t wait make the rest of them this year.

Finally a bundle that I have a plan for!
