Sunday Stash

This is actually my first Sunday Stash. I don’t normally do one because I accumulate fabric at odd intervals. But I was in Florida last week and got to visit the most wonderful quilt store: Wandering Stitches. Sadly (for my checkbook, not them) I will now have to visit them every time I’m in the…

This was a fast and fun quilt. Basically it consisted of taking a layer cake of Kona cotton solids (the classics in this case), randomizing them by throwing them in a big pile and then laying them out in a 6×7 grid. Yes, that simple. I wanted something to practice my longarm that would still…
