Stash Report Sunday 2/23/14

Most of my fabric usage this week was on projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I have been stitching hexie stars and snowflakes in each month's color, and this month was pink.

Yesterday I made a 12" scrappy LeMoyne star block to go along with all my 6" stars. That used .25 yards. I am thinking about switching to the black background instead of the white print to help those pale pinks show up better. I laid some pieces of the black over the white in the second photo, and I like the way it looks much better. Time to get out my ripper!

I also used 3/8 yard for the binding on the Bowtie Baby Quilt that I made for a co-worker. We are having a baby shower for her this Friday, and I can't wait to give her the quilt.

Used this week:                     .875 yards
Used year to date:            11.125 yards

Stashed this week:               0  yards  
Stashed year to date:       4.0 yards 

Net year to date:   
            7.125 yards used

  1. Another stunner! I like both the black and the white backgrounds, so I'm no help on that front. I don't think you can go wrong either way.

  2. Your stars really look great on the black background, they really stand out. Your co-workers baby quilt is adorable.

  3. As much as I think black is getting tired for background, it really does look the best with those pinks instead of the lighter one.

  4. The black background really makes the pinks pop. I love it!
