Shopping the Stash

I quilted yesterday. Yes, indeed. This top has been basted for a while and it was time to get it quilted. I used a free motion quilting motif I found on Amy Johnson's youtube channel as an all-over for the middle of this quilt. There are two borders left to quilt and I will show those when I get them finished. The two daisy prints are vintage Bill Blass fabrics from the 1990s I believe, but don't they look great with that gold? Shopping the stash, yeah!

Do you want more inspiration? Please visit Judy at Patchwork Times for more Design Wall Monday.

I am also linking up with Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures Free Motion Monday.


  1. Such a cheerful combination of fabrics!

  2. Fun fabrics that just pop with the gold. Shopping the stash is so satisfying. The quilting looks great, too.

  3. The gold is perfect for the daisy prints... ya done good! I'm admiring your FMQing... someday I'll be that brave.


  4. My friends and I are combining black and white fabrics to make quilts, that way we will have more variety. The pattern is called Trail Mix. I have been wondering what to use along my "trail". Seeing your cheerful yellow is tempting me to do yellow. Blue is my favourite colour but sometimes it's good to do something different.
    I enjoyed looking at Amy's blog and videos, thanks for the link.

  5. What a great combination! Can't wait to see more.

  6. Your scroll flowers look wonderful and those fabrics are great together! Thanks for joining in and linking up.
