I went to three quilt shops: Orchard's Edge in Bayfield, Ashland Area Fabric and Quilt Company in Ashland, and Fabric Patch in Ironwood. I'm not doing Row by Row so I didn't even inquire about patterns or fabrics for that, but I did get fabric that I liked.
Vacation acquisitions and not sewing for two weeks didn't help my stash reduction. Here's the six-month summary.
Stash report, June:
Fabric acquired: 40-1/2, $132
Fabric used: 11-1/8
Fabric acquired: 202-1/2, $831
Fabric used: 100-3/8
. . . and I started July with more fabric in: Goodwill bargains and a great Joann's sale. . .
However, there is progress! I had a shoebox with 1.5" x 7" strips cut in anticipation of a quilt like this one, which I've made twice. Hmmm. What if I just set them rail-fence style? Nicely scrappy, but not exciting.
What about sashing? Ah-ha! I have a box of 2.5" HSTs, perfect for this project.
P.S. This Ocean Waves variation is on a bed at the Eagle Bluff lighthouse in Door County. I couldn't make out the block pattern of the the quilt on the trundle bed.
Happy Independence Day!
