In my quest of trying to use up my stash, I am making progress! I cut up 14 purple fat quarters for this one.
I got the borders put on it today, now it’s ready to quilt.
This is the second quilt that I’ve made from my stash by using this block. It’s a fast block to make so I thought about how to do another quilt using this same block.
I decided to use my blue fabrics. I cut what fat quarters I had and then cut up different scraps of blues. I needed to have 200 pieces cut. I cut them in sets of 50’s and I’m now ready to sew.
In looking for blue fabrics to use, I came across some boxes of fabrics that I didn’t even know I had. Good grief! This is actually ridiculous. It’s no wonder I was running out of room!!
Ok, well, that’s it for now. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. I am determined to use my stash!!

I could do same with some pinks and some navies, especially… Thanks for sharing. I like the purple.
Thanks Melanie. They are really quick and easy to make. Have fun using your stash!
You are making great progress on using your stash. I really like your purple scrappy quilt. What size did you cut your strips?
Nancie, I cut them 2 1/2″. I sewed 4 strips together and then cut the strip units into 8 1/2″ squares. I sewed 4 squares together, alternating the direction of the strips, then added a 1″ strip around the blocks. The blocks ended up being 18 1/2″ unfinished. On the purple quilt, I cut the sashings at 4 1/2″ and the outside border 6 1/2″.
I want to make a quilt for my sons girlfriend her birthday is in 7 days , so this one of yours looks quick & easy , also pink/purples are her favourite colours ..

It’s a quick one to make. Good luck with it and I hope you get it made!😀
