Stash Report - Mar 21

I busted stash for 2 quilts this week.
1.5 yards to finish the blue celtic quilt, and 1.5 yards for the top on "Rainbow Dreams".  I'm now debating borders on this, but I think I'm leaning towards no borders and bind it in a light cream.

As mentioned yesterday, I have 1 fabric purchase this week.   The bundle of 2.5" strips comes to about 2 yards of fabric.  I have an idea for this fabric, but it involves a quilt I saw about 3 years ago, and I'm having a heck of a time figuring out what the proportions of the blocks were.  It was a lovely blue quilt (scrappy) with yellow star accents made by replacing 1 of 6 strips in each (?) block with a yellow strip.  The question mark is because there might have been fewer stars than 1 for every block.

I think the blocks looked something like this, but the strips all being the same size seems wrong.  I think they were graduated lengths, but I can't figure out proportions that make sense.   Anyone ever seen a quilt like this, or have suggestions for the strip lengths?


My stash report for this week:

3 yards out
2 yards in

Total in this year - 44 yards
Total out this year - 49 1/2 yards

Net this year: 5 1/2 yards out

  1. Could it have been one of the buzz saw type blocks you are thinking of? I think they are also called Majestic Mountains or something like that, but if they are set correctly they form a star.

    I might totally be off the wall on this one, so take it with a grain of salt!

    Rainbow dreams looks great!

  5. Rainbow dreams is very nice - I like the containment of the rectangles and the freedom of the placement.
