First my stash report--I bought a bunch of solids and two half jelly rolls on sale--
Do you use solids in your quilting? So my stash report is--
Stash added this week--15 yds
Stash out this week--0
Stash is ahead 15 yards!
The borders for the Orange 30's project are on my design couch--
I need to mark the seam lines on the edges. The borders have to fit exactly so the design continues around the quilt without a break. Tedious and time consuming but not hard.
I've been playing with these fabrics--
Myra sent me some "boy" themed fabrics and I pulled others from my stash. Horseshoes, baseballs, African Savannah, cowboys on horses, horse heads, tooled leather, and anything I thought blended with them. Next I searched the scrap boxes--
Anything I found in the scrap box I thought might blend with the other fabrics. I want to use them in this pattern--
Its a free pattern called Shuffle. It uses 5x10" rectangles, perfect to use the boy fabric but leave the motifs as intact as possible.

That's enough for this week, its a busy week. I'm linking to QuiltPaintCreate and Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
