"Lime Twist" with a Twist.

I decided to make the Lime Twist quilt from Quilt Now issue 6. Except as 2015 is the year of the stash reduction I am using fabrics I already had. I had this pile of fabric already together wit the scooter fabric as background but never quite decide what to make. Well now I have. 

In my last post I mentioned I was going to Henley to "only" buy fabric for the back of sweet Drunkard's path quilt. That plan went slightly wrong. I did go to Henley and I did buy back fabric and then I looked at the FQ packs. I think that's where I went wrong. 

 All that talk about not adding to the stash was forgotten. This will make a great boy quilt.

I will be able to incorporate some of the stash. Look the orange and green go really well. I am sure I have some blues that will go as well. So actually it will help reduce the stash - it will really. I think Mr Made By Frederica believed me.

Good Friday Finish

Yes, I know it's Easter Sunday today and Good Friday is long since gone. I did however finish this on Friday. I really like how this Sweet Drunkard's Path has turned out. It's only small 110cm square but super cute.

I had declared 2015 the year of the stash buster (yes, I know all years are proclaimed as such) and was planning to piece a back from the stash. However the top is all stash, no new fabrics used, so I might just treat this super cute quilt to a new back. Lady Sew and Sew have the big polka dot fabric in their sale and also some others that might be suitable. I think a trip to Henley is in order. It's Easter Holidays, so the daughters and dog can come and we will have a walk by the river after the fabric shopping.

It's better weather today, so I will try and get some outdoors shots to show it in a better light.

Happy Easter everyone.
