I took this stack of small 2.5" squares that I showed a couple of weeks ago
sashed them during the Super Bowl
sashed them some more with white background fabric
and turned them into a queen-sized quilt top. That's right, a queen-sized top.
Can I stretch a square of fabric or what? I'm not really sure WHY I'm so compelled to combine these teeny tiny swaths of fabric with massive amounts of background fabric to create large-ish quilts, when my stash of yardage still looks like this (well, worse actually. This was after I de-cluttered the stash but BEFORE I found 2 more bins of fabric in the attic.):
And my stash of charm packs still looks like this (minus the mini-charm pack of Bliss on top):
Maybe I'm just really into the concept of blank/relief space right now. Maybe it's because these Bliss fabrics are so stinkin' cute, and I want to get some serious mileage out of them. Maybe it's because it's tough for me to integrate the yardage I've inherited with the pre-cuts I have on hand in my mind.
I take comfort in the fact that I've never claimed to be a stashbuster and that I don't participate in Judy's weekly stash reports.
I just ordered for this quilt top and one other top that should hopefully arrive later in the week. Maybe I'll have a finished quilt (or two?) to show in the next couple of weeks!
In the meantime, here's what we're eating this week:
- Vegetarian Crockpot Curry - this was tasty, but I think I'll add more of the listed spices next time.
- Spinach Quesadillas, Drunken Beans
- Spinach and Ricotta Shells, Brown Butter Roasted Cauliflower
- Creamy Orzo, Steamed Broccoli, (+Fish for me)
- Eat Out
