Blue with Sunshine is finished!

Another quilt from my clean-out-this-stash project is finished. I added a few yellow strips to this blue jelly roll race quilt. My strips are not all width-of-fabric but I really don't think they need to be. It finished at 56" X 63".

The batting is Dream Cotton. I quilted it with my walking foot and a wavy stitch. 

The back is a light blue. I think you can see the quilting in this photo. The Signature thread is blue variegated.

Yesterday I finished with the blue fabric in my clean-out-this-stash  project. I have either used them or they are cut into 2 1/2" strips (lots!), cut into squares, or put into the string basket. There is a very small pile of usable small pieces. Just so you know, I still have LOTS of blues (and every other color) that I'm not cleaning out.

Since today is Halloween, I decided to work on the oranges. I finished with them this afternoon! 

I'll keep using the strips in quilts - I'm just trying to get the colors under control. I still have a ways to go but I'm making progress and enjoying the whole process.

At the moment, I have 2 quilts pinned and ready to be quilted. Thirteen tops are finished and need to be sandwiched and pinned. I think there are 6 quilts that are cut and need to be sewn. I'm not sure how many finished quilts are in my donation pile.

The new BLOCK magazine arrived today. I think I'll make one of the quilts with some of my 2 1/2" strips. Maybe I can get that kitted one day soon. 

I think Trick-or-Treat is about to begin so I'd better get ready for all of our little ghosts and goblins.


  1. Your quilt is beautiful...looks like a Cape Breton day with blue skies, blue water, and sun! Good for you for making such gorgeous quilts with your stash!

  2. This is a great combo. Love how you have mixed the values in. I think you found the secret to making these quilts of strips successful. Each one you have done look so good.

  3. I love the yellow strips -- they add so much to it!

  4. Love these colors together. Great job and what a neat stitch for quilting. Hope the goblins ate up all the candy.
