Fabric Stash Quilt-Along!
Introducing QUILT magazine’s Fabric Stash Quilt-Along! We love getting our readers involved and what better way to do that than to have them recreate blocks from our Fabric Stash? In each issue we showcase block patterns that we love, and we’ve asked our readers to recreate these blocks using fabric from their own stash. Each Fabric Stash pattern is assigned to two of our readers who then make a block in whatever color scheme or print they like. We hope you enjoy these recreations from our readers as much as we do!
The original block pattern is featured in our Aug/Sept 2012 issue. The fabric is from the Ink collection by Melissa Marie Collins and the Plaster of Paris blender collection by Stephanie Brandenburg for Frond Design Studios, www.fronddesignstudios.com
I chose these colors because of their complimentary hues and values, and the small-scale prints help to define the “links.” I love this pattern because of all of the different choices I have in regards to fabric and color, and I love the way this block looks on-point. The block is great for all levels of quilters, from beginners to the experts. – Cherie Wright SEWandSoQuilts.blogspot.com
I found this block easy to piece and I was able to piece it by hand. I had a scrap bag of 16 quarter-yards of Paisley prints. I like Paisley print fabric and thought they would be good for this block. I chose these colors of green, blue, and cream because I thought they would look good together. I think the finished product turned out nice and I really enjoyed getting to participate in the quilt-along. – Melissa Slofkosky
