Kitting the stash

I’ve been busy the past week, going through my stash and making fabric kits for various patterns and on-line blocks of the month.

Of course, this gave me an opportunity for one of my most favourite quilting activities – playing on EQ.

The first quilt started out as a variation of a quilt in Cynthia Tomaszewski’s Tea in the Garden.tea in the garden one   After a week or two of working on leaves and stemstitch vines, I realized I would be bored to death with all those sashings and that the quilt might never get made.  So along came this:  tea in the garden twoAs much as I like it, I thought it might be nice to do another applique block or design that’s been on my list.  So I’ve ended up with this, using “Rachel’s Reel” by Jo Morton:boxed reel

After much mucking about, I made up this quilt layout to use up particular fabrics in my stash, based on Cotswald Cottages from Fig Tree Houses.neutral cottages

And then there were my leftover Charlotte fabrics – I think I came up with twenty different ideas for them.  Then this morning I realized that there must be something else I can try that isn’t hsts and squares, or applique.  I dug out I’my drunkard path templates and came up with this  -  charlotte circlesThen there are a few online blocks of the month that that | wanted to do, and had the fabrics for – so I’ve kitted Now and Forever, by Beth Ferrier; a Tisket a Tasket, by Anne Sutton at BunnyHill Designs; and Pearl P. Perriera’s mystery block of the month.  I think I better stop now – as I’ve also enrolled in a couple of applique subscription blocks of the month.  Yikes.  These applique quilts -  A Primitve Garden, and a Winter Garden/Love Letters, are quilts that I know I’m going to wish I had done years from now – even if it takes me years to make them up!

penny your mind works like mine...just to many wonderful projects that are happening all the time.. only you are more organized you have kitted your BOM.. that is an exceptional idea..I usually grab what is on hand when the blocks come out. I have to think about your concept.
Oh I just love what you have come up with in EQ..the second one would even make a great mini quilt...
