How many of you have tons
Of stash that you dont know
How you will use it all?

There are only so many hours
In a day

Maybe you got it years ago
And now it is not your
Colors or style.......
Dusty blue?  Mauve pink? From the 80s

Maybe you have an abundance of Christmas fabrics.....
Oh THAT would be fun

Or maybe your stash is just overflowing 

Join me in this challenge
We will be USING UP that stash
And using moda bake shop pattern
Stepping down

Your assignment......
Cut 20.  Ten inch squares 
Wont take you long at all
Go on.....

Maybe a layer cake is what you
Need to use

See? Easy. 

We will be putting just
2 borders on them
And you can cut yardage for that too
If you have a ton of something
(Tell me again why I used to buy 5 yds?)

Cut those squares out of those fabrics

These are mine
MY assistant helped

An easy assignment so far

Mine are using pinks and reds and you know
I dont normally use
The warm colors so this will be
My challenge

Some squares I have one of
Some four of.
Just cutting them and will worry 
Later about the placement

I am thinking of using scraps
Of whites for my 2.5 strips
And maybe a navy for the
Dark strips. Will see when we 
Get to that point

Maybe darker red

So go ahead
Grab that stash
This quilt should work up quickly
And use up ten inch pieces

What d'ya say?
Wanna join me?
I would Love to see what You are using

If this is as fun as I think it will be
I just may be cutting up those blues
How cool would blue ten inch squares
And maybe yellow 2.5 strips for first
And navy for 2nd border be?
Or even green?

See what I mean?

and show us........

Awesome Sharon. Rosemary of knitting quilter is joining us too. Cant wait to see the different quilts said...

Can't wait to see what you ladies make. I am working on finishing a quilt in the next 6 weeks, and as we know I am a slow quilter. LOL

Jeanna said...

Can't wait to see what you all create.

I wish I could join in, but I have far too many tips waiting to get quilted, so I am on a self-imposed freeze from making new tops until these are done. It's killing me!!! I'll be watching to see what you all make!!

Rosemary Dickinson said...

So glad you're doing this! I cut random fabric from my stash. We'll have to see how they work out!
