Stash Busters Quilt Along, with Giveaways!

As promised to a few of my faithful followers, I am going to have a Quilt Along starting September 1.  Each Sunday I will post instructions for one block. As always I will be using the Easy Angle and Companion Angle Rulers to make my blocks.  I may throw a few other techniques in, just to keep you on your toes.

You will be invited to post a picture of your block on the Flickr page I have created.  Don't worry if you don't know how to do this, I will walk you through it.  Once a month I will draw a name from all of those that have posted a picture, and have a great giveaway.  You will be able to use up some of your stash, and have a chance at some great prizes.

The first month's giveaway is this wonderful book signed by Verna.  I may sweeten the prize a little before the end of the month.

So, dig through your stash and come up with some fabric that you just NEED to use up.  Make one block a month, all the blocks or pick and choose which you like best.  This is a no pressure quilt along unless you really want to win the prize, then there might be a little pressure.  LOL!

I couldn't decide on just one set of fabric to use, so I have three different groups.  I guess I will be making three sets of blocks.

I have to work with this beautiful fat quarter pack of Dreamcatchers Batiks.  Mmmmmmm good!

This fat quarter pack of Civil War Jubilee is begging to be used.

Of course I have to have a modern grouping of fabrics so this Simply Style will have to become a set of blocks.

So no matter what type of fabric you want to work with, dig it out and we will get started next Sunday!

If you are here looking for the Hexie Queen post, it is the previous post.


  1. Not one, not two, but three? So what size block are we talking.
    Sounds fun

  2. This sounds fun! I'm off to look through my stash1

  3. Count me in! This will be my first quilt along! Might use batiks. Have been collecting FQ for a bit. Not sure yet.

  4. Looking Forward to this project!

  5. Hmmm...might be a good way to tackle that scrap box once again!

  6. Sounds like fun Linda , will we need those special rulers or can we manage without?

  7. I might have to pop in and check this QAL out! Love that colours in your Simply Style stack.

  8. How much fabric will we need for back grounds? Want to be sure I have enough.

  9. Well I'll blame Billie for getting me here - love to make blocks and love QAL's. BUT I do have fabric begging to be played with.
