Stash Depletion Strategy Quilt?

So I was looking at my stash, wondering if I could pare it down a bit and make a few quilts. Silly question, the answer is undoubtedly YES. So I browsed through a few of my books and saw this.


We all know how much I love neutrals (NOT!), so I decided my version would have color. But how much fabric would I need (since I rarely by fabric in larger than half-yard cuts).


Turns out if I make this using four basic colors, I only need quarter yard pieces. Well that works! So I had to go shopping in my stash.


This has potential.

It certainly does have potential. And I LOVE how you laid it all out using Excel! Brilliant.

This discovery/planning phase is my favorite part of quilting! Once I get the idea "figured" and the fabrics pulled and organized, the quilt is done in my mind.

This looks like a fun stashbuster!

That is a creative way to use Excel.

Just found your blog and the quilt blocks you have chosen. Wonderful! I think they'd be great done in the handdyes I dye. I love the use of excel also though I don't know much about the excel program.
