    Ok, now that I finished something new (i posted it in the pictures forum, it's a raven racing through lightning) I decided to clean up my stash and see what I had.

    Oh my! I realized I had collected enough fat quarters (I'm a sucker for fat quarters) in a couple of themes/looks to make quilt tops. These little collections have been a few years in the making...you know, just pick up one at a time when I come across. So I am putting together a group of my fat quarters (the fruits and berries ones) and take it to my quilt retreat at our local quilt shop in June. I won't come home unless I use those fat quarters LOL.

    I think I may also have enough lights/darks/mediums to do a Buggy Barn quilt as well.

    Yay!

    In my clean up I also put all scraps (anything smaller then a fat quarter) in a bin and I have more then enough to make one, maybe 2 scrappy quilts!

    Double yay!

    I didn't realize I had all this fabric! I usually buy what I need when I start a project, and had forgotten about the fat quarters I picked up just because. I'm actually a little giddy over the whole thing LOL.

    I think new quilt possibilities make us all a little giddy. Have fun.

    Just thought I'd show you what I did with fruits, berries and vege. They also make good theme grocery shopping bags.
    Sorry about the extra pictures.

    Tried something new...its called The Big Block Quilt, but I chose to use blue instead of the usually red with my black and white F4s. They have been in my stash for ...ummm...too many years! I like it, even though the blue does not "pop" like the red always does!

    I saw the cutest Dolphin fabric scrap on sale last fall and knew it would make the perfect border for a quilt I was planning to make for my brother's girlfriend. The center is made from several of the Batik FQs I have in my stash and scraps from my brother's quilt. I called it Sunset Frolic. She was surprised and loved the faces I put on the dolphins in the center.

    Oh wow, Paula, this is great.

    I don't know how I missed this thread. I will have to go back and look at all the beautiful finishes.!

    DflyNana--the appliqued dolphins put the final touch on this patchwork sunset. Is this your own design?

    I've been lurking on this thread for some time now. Beautiful quilts coming from your stash. I finally finished some stash quilts to add. I sent these to OK after the tornado. I guess it took a disaster to get my creative juices flowing.

    Thanks for the compliments. I saw a small wall hanging in a magazine that gave me the idea for the background and I printed pics of real dolphins to enlarge and trace for the center. I did take some liberties by giving them smiles.
    When I quilted it I did "Rays" coming from the center on the top and wavy lines on the bottom.

    Just had to tell y'all this! I was having lots of fun creating and using up my stash when I suddenly had a six block top that "demanded" to be bigger. Nothing in my stash would work - see thread in Main section "ideas needed" so a shopping trip was essential! So much for stash busting on this one. Lol!

    Lovely quilts, everyone! We are headed on vacation for over a month. I'm taking a machine and lots and lots of projects. I'll have a lot of time to sew during the heat of the day. Can't wait to see how much I'll accomplish away from the every day distractions here at home. Wish me luck!
