Stash Quilt



I made this quilt last year, with fabrics I wanted to eliminate from my stash. It's inspired by one I saw on the Material Obsession blog. I love that blog. Those Aussies always amaze me with their creativity!



The back used up the leftovers. It's on our bed now, and one of my husband's favorites.

YUM. Guess I need to send you some more fabric!!! Your quilts are so amazingly colorful and rich. Your color sense is strong and true. (Machine quilted?) xxoo

I have had my eyes on this pattern for a looong time. I think you have done a brilliant version - so full of life! Very inspiring! (For some reasons I think I see leap frogs in the blogs - does this make sense?)
Need to go through my own stash and find some neutral / masculine fabrics...

Was the pattern actually ON their blog or did you just seek the quilt and then go for it? I scanned the posts but didn't see either . . .

GREAT work!!!!!

I love it! I'm a big scrap quilt fan and this is one of the best I've seen. I may have to try my hand at one. Love the back as well.

This is FABULOUS! I love the Material Obsession blog too but somehow never notice a quilt like this. Great work on both sides!

adding this to the TO DO list.
Might be a neat way to use up some nickels I have set back.
