Happy Sunday, and happy Memorial Day Weekend! The weather here is gorgeous. Hope you’re all getting to spend time as you want, sewing or with family. Some of us are sewing along on Twitter, #mdsi.
This week: +0 yards, -2.5 yards
YTD: +64.75 yards, -103 yards
Net stash used 2014: -38.25 yards
The yardage used was for this baby quilt I made for Project Linus from scraps. I have several quilts set aside to give them, and I thought I’d add one or two before I called my connection. I was also looking for some non-fiddly chain piecing to do, and this filled the bill, at least for the four patch part of the Disappearing Four Patches.
I used a different tutorial from last time. I found this one from Missouri Star Quilt Co. I don’t know if it comes out exactly the same as rotating all the center bars, but it is easy, and most of the seam allowances were turned the right way to make assembly easier.
The backing is the cloud and planet fabric. It’s quilted all over with stars, loops, and clouds, using one of Superior’s newish Fantastico variegated threads.
I’m linking up to Sunday Stash Report at Patchwork Times.

Love that. I could never have imagined those fabrics would’ve turned into such a great quilt. Good job.

I like the fabrics you put together in this quilt. They really complement each other and showcase the design.
