Some of This, Some of That Week 38

Well I used 2 yards to make another B3Quilt.
This is a Moda pattern from their Go Big Block 2 booklet.  Measures 32" square - just right for a preemie quilt.  It went together fast although I didn't do it in rows as they suggested.  I made the 5 nine-patch blocks that form an "x" in the middle of the quilt and then made the triangles in the center of the edges.  

I liked the pattern so much that I decided to make the Raffle quilt for the Friends of the Library using this pattern to make a album quilt that will be raffled off Oct-December.  
That's what's on my design wall barely.  It's too big - LOL.  Will measure 58" square.  The very center block will have the family's name in the center.  My daugher does great calligraphy and I'm going to ask her to write it in for us.  But first we have to have a winner.   Will take 3.75 yards from my stash.

               Lastly, I've been going through my stash seeing if I can find fabrics to go with my RSC 2015 orange blocks.  These are the ones I've picked so far.  What do you think?  Please advise.  If I use all these it will be another 1/2 yard from my stash as most of this is from the St. Anne's stash.  This baby quilt will go to them.  It's going to be a simple quilt as I want to highlight the stars.  So for my stash report I can say I'll have used 6.25 yards this past week for a YTD total of 81.20 yards  de-stashed.              

Slow stitching wise I have one more basket to do, and I will really start those leaves -lol.  If only I'd stop finding things I have to do, I might make some progress on those WIPs.

I'm linking to Judy's Patchwork Times, Lyn's BOMs Away, Connie's Linky Tuesday, and Esther's Wow. Check them out.  And leave me a comment - I'll come visit and see your goodies.

That does make a really cute preemie quilt! Looking forward to seeing what blocks you make with your oranges.
Your oranges will make an adorable quilt! It's amazing how much stash you've used--good job!!
Great fabrics Angie. Hope the fires are far away from you.

Loving the oranges together, it's usually a color I stay away from in quilting but I'm loving what you're doing with it!
You've got an interesting assortment of ORANGE fabrics, but what I really like is the idea for the Friends Quilt!! FANTASTIC idea to have the winning family's name in the center!

You are doing a great job on reducing that stash.....hats off to you! I just seem to add to mine! Thanks for joining the party at Bits n' Bobs - Design Board Monday....I loved seeing what you are working on.

Great stars (the only one that seems odd to me in the bunch if they're all going together is the easter egg fabric). I always wish I were also doing the rainbow challenges when I watch everyone doing them. You know how overextended I already am, though!! heh!
