Working From My Stash

I did enjoy my blog break and am ready for the new year of stitching and quilting. 2016 is the year to work from my stash. I am going to try and use some of my favorite fabrics in quilts for my home. Most will be simple in order to keep as much of the fabric as possible. Hey, they are some of my favs and that is why they have not been cut into. I have started with this simple quilt using two different lines by Kate Spain. The first layer cake has been cut, sewn and trimmed and is now waiting upon the second cake to be put to use. That will happen later today. All is ready, I just need to sit down at the machine and sew the blocks. Then I can put all the blocks together to make my first quilt of the year. Even the backing will come from my stash, hopefully...wish me luck. I will be back soon with the finished flimsy to show. I am thinking of hand quilting this one and maybe adding a bit of stitch to the centers as well. We shall see, decisions, decisions...Have a great day.
