Challenge #1

- to make a quilt

- the quilt is a past due Christmas present; it should match this Ikea fabric that is used for window treatments in the room where the quilt will reside

- after searching on line, I have decided for Denyse Schmidt's Hop, Skip and a Jump like this one

- as my challenge this year requests, no buying of a material allowed, so I searched my stash and found these

- my initial thought was to use only solids, which I think would look great, but I am not allowed, so what else to do?
- the recipient of this quilt loves bright colors and crazy patterns, so she should like these

I can't wait to see how this turns out, but first - the laundry.

PS: Oh, and that cute sleepy ace on the sofa? Our new addition - Zora.

Those fabrics are lovely - they will look great! What kind of puppy - she is so cute! We are going to Minnesota to pick up a wirehair pointer the end of March - ought to be interesting!

I've got so much fabric here... but I still have to go out and buy red fabric for a quilt I'm making as a secret for my good mate Scott who's moved to England. He likes red and I hardly have any. So annoying!

Good luck with the great Stash Reduction Challenge of 2010!
