I had a terrific time in a little quilt class at the show in Manchester, formerly held in Nashua, NH called A Quilter's Gathering. It was taught by Pat Harrison, who has her own method of piecing these blocks. I am going to count the fabric scraps that I used as stash busted, since there was also a lot of yardage that I had to tap to get it scrappy enough. I may not be an enormous fan of the scrappy quilt. I like other people's more than mine, which tend to just look like garbage. Others in the class had fabrics that read more like solids. As I am learning, that is not what I tend to be putting in my stash...good information to know.
For stash count, I'm going to count the approximate yardage for top and borders. Much came from the scrap bin, but that should count, no?
I also bought some fabric from Lola Pink. They've got a few PUL fabrics, meant for diaper making, that I'm going to experiment with for lunchboxes and maybe pencil cases. I love new textiles! I love old textiles, too.
Stash used: 5 yards when taking into account the piano key border. That thing is a lot of work.
Stash used total: 22 yards
Stash acquired: 6 yards
Stash acquired total: 26 yards
