Stash Building

Ok everyone, I'm not exactly using this challenge as a stash-buster, but rather a stash-builder. I have only made 10 quilts and 3 of them were out of Kansas Troubles...on the dark and drab side...so I just can't see putting that material with my Christmas, Fall and Florescent material and come out with a nice quilt. Therefore, I'm using this challenge as a stash-builder and I'm adding fat quarters. I just returned from the quilt store and purchased 24 FQs in pinks, blues and purples. I'm thinking I'll need to return for another 24 FQs in yellow and green and possibly some orange. I'll also need to purchase some white-on-white for my sashing. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! Have a great evening!

I think using this as a stash building mission is a great idea, and it sounds like fun! I remember when I first started quilting and I needed to build my stash. Now I have too much of a stash!

Your quilt is going to be pretty!
