Stashbusters: using up the Red and Aqua
On my quest to start using up my fabric stash (vs. letting it sit unused in boxes for years and years....), I have a new top completed. I call this one, Trapped by Icy Blue. This was an experiment in asymmetry, though there are symmetrical elements about it. I also decided to mix it up a bit with a pop of red, just to see what it looked like. I am still not sure if I like it or not. I would love to hear your opinions!
I enjoyed working the strips in smaller blocks. This top was made with 4 big blocks, as opposed to one giant block that kept growing as in the Big Blue stashbuster here.
Though you might have seen this coming, I did not. I was singly focused on making the quilt tops without a care in the world. Now....I need backs for these two big blue quilts, and I can't decide what to choose. I thought of just purchasing some wide fabric to use for the backs, but it kind of defeats the purpose of getting rid of what I already have. I thought of just using this quilt as the back for the other one. They are almost the same size. However, aesthetically, it is not working for me. Why do I have to care??? But I do.
Then, I will need to quilt these big quilts. Not ready for that yet. I will get to it, but for now, I am working on more quilt tops and see what happens. Stay tuned!
