Since Pat Sloan will be coming to our guild in September for a workshop and trunk show, I thought I would try working on one of her projects prior to that.
She is promoting a sampler of 100 – 6″blocks by various designers that is to be completed over the next year. Today’s email suggested 30-35 fat quarters plus background fabric would be needed to finish the quilt.
Normally when I am making a special guilt I make a trip to the quilt store to make sure I get coordinating fabrics. One of my fellow guild members told me that her goal was to use up as much of her stash as she could before buying something else. I decided to see if I could follow suit.
Last year I made my granddaughter, who was getting married, a Christmas tree skirt. I was able to put together fabric for the entire top from my stash. So now I check my stash first!There is always time to quilt!
