Before I sat down to write my stash report, I was happily thinking that I could count some fabric as used but had no additions for the week. WRONG! I forgot that I stopped at Joann's last Sunday afternoon to look for some fabric to back a baby quilt. I found this wild tie-dye flannel that was on super clearance so I bought what they had left, 4.5 yards. That will be enough to back at least 2, probably 3 baby quilts.
My usage was less than the incoming, but I am very happy to report a finished quilt top! My sister and I have been making Wonky Stars for Alycia's QOV block drive. I joined all of the Wonky Stars blocks together, then added a border of 3.5" squares around the stars. You can see about 90% of the quilt here--altogether it has 6 stars across and 8 down, plus the border of scrappy squares all the way around. If only I didn't have to photograph my design wall through a doorway!

It's hard to pass up cheap backing fabric. Even with the addition you are still in the black. That's a fun QOV, the scrappy border makes a nice frame for the blocks. I've got 6 of the Wonky stars to send to Alycia. I'm in search of light scraps to make a few more.ReplyDelete
An addition with a purpose usually leaves as quickly as it came. Your quilt is perfect.ReplyDelete
