Comfort Quilt, 2

I'm on a roll. The house has been neglected, and my desk is a waterfall of paperwork. It's more fun to be in the sewing studio.  I'll have to get down to reality soon, but for now this is too much fun.

I paired all  my strips, cut and sewed the curves and cut the curved pairs into blocks. Then I designed all the blocks and set them aside to pin while I watched TV. I saved all the little extra bits from each strip. Hold that thought...

This is the end of an evening's work.

Then I took the little leftover bits and sewed them together, alternating the black and white at each end. I just grabbed the strips semi-randomly. The resulting strip was about five feet long, and totally awesome. I didn't know exactly what I'd do with it, but felt it would appear on the back of the quilt somehow.

 I love this block.

And this one. This quilt goes WAY WAY WAY over the top, but it's perfect for the young lady it's going to, and she so well deserves it. I'm happy to be making it and have been having such fun doing it.

PS, All the fabrics for this quilt came from my stash. I'm not sure if I should hide from embarrassment about that fact.

Wowiee zowiee! These blocks are awesome! Now I want to do that too. It looks like loads of fun. (I'm still deciding what fabrics to use for the same pattern. Too many choices!)

A stash is a beautiful thing. Don't be ashamed of it. You've got one for a reason! It's the same thing as having pencils or paper or paints. And it sure looks like you have a super stash!

Holy cow, I'd just love to sit on the floor beside your stash and just dream. Love what you've done so far.
