Amy has been hard at work again organizing the fabulous Blogger's Quilt Festival!!!
My entry is the Stashbuster Quilt!
This is a pattern from Kathy Doughty and is found in Material Obsession 2.
There are so many things I love about this quilt. The bright colors, combination of warm and cool colors, the dots, the piano key border, the stitching and the yo-yo's.
The pattern suggests the Kaleido-ruler from Marti Michell. What a great ruler! I have used it over and over, so definitely money well spent.
Stashbuster is a crossed canoe block done in a piecey fun way!
Sew together strips, from your stash of course, and use the Kaleido-ruler to cut the large triangle. Flip your ruler and use the other side to cut the small triangles!
Once the quilt was pieced and a piano key border added, I hand stitched the entire quilt with #8 perle cotton. I stitched around the triangles and then added this strong red line of stitching from point to point. The borders are stitched in a zig-zag pattern.
Finally, fun yo-yo's were added at the point where the 4 smaller triangles meet.
And there you have it.....The Stashbuster!!! Pattern by Kathy Doughty found in Material Obsession 2.
Pop over to Amy's Creative Side and have a look at all the wonderful quilt and add one of your own to the line-up!!!!
