Out of the stash

How appropriate!  My "scrap and stash" baby quilt is getting a backing pulled from the leftover backing drawer.  


This swirly print was a wide backing that I used on a quilt months ago. There was just enough left to use on this baby quilt if I pieced it.  So there are 2.5 yards more GONE from the stash. And there was enough of the green print for binding, so another 1/2 yard used.  I dropped the flimsy and backing off to be quilted yesterday.

  1. The backing is adorable with the other fabrics. I love "shopping" my stash and finding something that complements the other fabrics I've used.

  2. I've been dipping into my stash too!! Making pillowcases for the kids that come to the Mitchell safehouse. So good to have a place of safety but sad too.
