Scrap Stash and Go

Scrappy Tula

stash fabrics

Last week after finishing the My Way -Rebel  quilt using all fabrics from my stash I was so happy. I realized the potential of my stash and decided to dig in to more bags and totes and see what I had to make. This quilt was from a partial layer cake of Tula Pink fabrics. I decided to treat it as scrappy and add some Grunge.  At first I thought it was too busy but laying it out next to these beautiful red tulips, I think it looks happy!

The colors are kind of crazy but I really like it and its scrappy feel.  In keeping with the stash and using what I have I found 6 FQs for the backing.  These are some Anna Maria Horner prints I have had for a while. 

I think it works! What do you think?  Machine quilted with wavy stitch gives it great texture.   So happy to use up some of my stash...just wish it was more. Off to put my thinking cap on and see what is in the next bag or tote!! 

Before I forget, my lqg had a sew day at the IQSCM again and they had a special guest Shizuko Kuroha from Japan. She was a delight and she gave a demo on her hand work. Very inspiring and beautiful work.

It definitely works - not to busy at all, just cheerful and fun. Great job (I love using my stash - it's the SCRAPS that get me...much harder to get excited after I have used something a couple of times.)
