Stash Report Sunday 4/22/12

I had hoped to finish the top for my Storm at Sea quilt this week, but didn't get to spend enough time on it.  Instead of rushing to get it done as quickly as possible, I decided it was more important to do it right and end up satisfied with the final product.

I decided to try to make a small piece for this month's Color Palette Challenge.  This is the photo inspiration for the challenge.  Not a very appetizing photo, but a great group of colors.

I had been wanting to find a hand stitching project that would be easily portable for travel, and I decided to try English paper piecing.  I am going to see how I like the process by making a small wall hanging for the challenge.  These are my fabric choices.

I was amazed when I found the multicolor print in my stash.  It is such a terrific match for the color palette! That will be a border, with the light print as a background and the others for the pieced area.  Don't know if I can get it done before the end of the month, but it's worth a try.
