One blog I read pretty much every day is Exuberant Color. Wanda inspires me with the sheer volume of quilts she makes. Amazing! She is fearless with color and often uses batiks. I had a small stash of batiks but really haven’t used them much. She has inspired me to use up this portion of my stash. I mostly had fat quarters. So I pressed them and layered then and started cutting.
I started with this:
And now I am here:
My design wall is small so I hung up a flannel sheet. This will end up a twin size coverlet. I have some other bits and pieces to use but they are all cut into uniform sizes. I will probably buy a couple half yard pieces to use in a scrappy border as I only have small pieces left. I like that in some places there is high contrast and in other places everything blends together like a watercolor quilt.
My youngest daughter wants this when it is done…..we’ll see!
It does feel good to have cleared out a portion of my stash that has been sitting unused for a long time.
Until next time….
