Making from Stash in March

>> Monday, April 2, 2012

My design wall has been full for a week. Time to blog about it and take it all down!

I gave in to the *S* blocks! They are now my leaders and enders project. So far I've only been sewing together leftover hsts. I can't wait to start some new projects and play with some new scraps!

This is the only BOM that I started this year - and I'm almost done! It's a mini quilt from Temecula Quilts and there's only one more block. I should be finished this one pretty soon. No leftover hsts here though - the squares are 1 7/8 inches then cut in half. That's getting way too tiny for me to reuse!

I also took some time recently to play with my Eat with Joy placemat pattern. All of the pieces of the blocks are made out of 5 inch charms. I used some long loved fabric from my stash. These were the colors and types of fabrics I bought when I first started quilting. It could have something to do with the infamous blue and yellow star quilt made by Alex Anderson.

Then I played with some Christmas charms and made another placemat. This time even the borders are made from charm squares. I think this design would work better with a charm pack where all the prints coordinate. Or using multiple charms of a couple of fabrics. i do like how the Santa prints sit in the design.

Now my wall is empty again as I start to work on finishing some small projects.

With Joy,
Sarah Vee
