May is my month for the Stash Bee. I am calling my quilt “Come What May” for that reason and because it is kind of an “improv” type of quilt, I am just sewing together the blocks willy-nilly as they come in the mail and will see how it turns out.
Here’s what it looks like so far. I’ve received blocks from Tanya, Miki, and Jenelle.
I also finished up my Aneela Hoey quilt. The binding/borders are a little wavy, but it’s in the dryer right now and I’m hoping to get some better (less wavy) photos of it tomorrow.
I really like this pattern. It’s by Sew Bittersweet Designs and uses 2.5” squares, so it would be a perfect scrap-buster. I am so into scrap quilts right now, how about you? I’ve spent every spare dime I have buying scrap packs on Etsy the past few weeks. It was a great way to get some designer fabric I’ve never seen in real life.
I stippled all over this quilt with gray thread from Connecting Threads. The back is Kona Ash, the borders are Alexander Henry Heath in a dark pink, and the binding is gray with white polka dots.
If you look close, the fabric isn’t white, it’s the pale pink square dots from Sherbet Pips.
Have a wonderful weekend!
