First, don’t forget this weekend is Quiltathon. Cook, clean, shop, do the laundry .. do everything you can ahead of time so you can sew all weekend.
Either this afternoon or tomorrow I’ll put some cutting directions for the stash project. I’m not giving yardage requirements because you’ll just use stash fabrics to get a large variety of “bright colored stash fabrics” which can be whatever you want – as mentioned yesterday, feel free to use Christmas fabrics, fall fabrics, batiks, homespun . . whatever is in your stash. For the background, I’m using a mixture of ecru on ecru fabrics. If you want to use the same fabric throughout, I haven’t figured that out.
There is no set schedule for posting instructions. I’m traveling often these days and will post the instructions as I can and will try to give you enough time between the postings to get each step finished without feeling rushed.
The instructions will be posted for the blocks and sashing. Note that there is outer sashing. I’ll post the plain border info and anyone wanting to do the pieced borders can stick with me and I’ll share that info but those who want to have the smaller quilt with the plain borders will be done.
One note about the background fabric . . look at the outer sashing. After that, there’s a border. If you use the same background fabric for that border and for the outer part of the outer sashing, once the top is quilted, that will all look like one piece. I’ll point out to you which pieces this involves when the cutting instructions are posted.
Probably makes no sense at all now but it will when we get to that point.
