Sometimes you want to create a quilt that is simple and uses your stash. A while back I was “bored” and started going through my collection of charm packs. I say “bored”, but I was probably avoiding doing something else like laundry. In my charm pack stash were two Hullabaloo packs sitting there waiting for their opportunity to become a quilt. I sorted out the fabrics for a girl and more gender neutral option.
Then they sat back in that box for a few months. I had even pulled out the coordinating yardage that I had in my stash to back and bind a quilt.
An opportunity arose to make a quilt for someone just because. They needed something cheery in their lives at that moment. Not sure what I wanted to do, I went to my charm pack box and then found the Hullabaloo fabrics sitting there. Oh course!
I grabbed a gray solid in my stash and bordered the charms. Like I said, simple quilt. This whole quilt probably took my two nights after P went to bed.
I found a big piece of scrap batting and wasted no time getting this quilted. Again the quilting was pretty simple too. X’s across the squares.
The binding was a Kona red sitting in my stash that matched the more crimson red in the Hullabaloo line.
There was just enough yardage in my stash for a backing as well. A completely stash quilt, it was easy to whip up, and someone is enjoying some snuggles under it. Sounds like a win to me. Since there is red on the binding, I sent along a Shout Color Catcher for the next wash. I did wash the quilt with one and it came out PINK.
