Folkwood Baby Quilt | May and June Stash Report

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Included in the June Stash Builder Box that I won as part of the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict were three coordinating yards of Folkwood by Dear Stella.  

As soon as I saw the fabrics, I knew they were destined to be a Disappearing Nine Patch quilt, because the prints were the perfect variation in color and design size, and because I had zero fabrics in the stash to coordinate with them.  I'd been wanting to make a D9 quilt, so it was a win-win for the fabric and for me - it got used, and I got to make a D9!

I figured out how to place the fabrics so the bunnies all ended up facing the same direction after they were turned (on the second and remaining blocks anyway)!  {{Pats self on back!!}}

Quilting is a starburst flower design, done on Gratitude.  Oh wait, I did have this backing fabric that coordinated, and the leftover scraps were put to good use in the backing.

Such yumilicious binding!  And can you believe that Blogger thinks that's a word?!?  Ha Ha!

This is the seventh use of my new Handmade labels from Ikaprint!

I was gone at the end of May and thought I'd sneak by without a Stash confession, but I decided to post May and June together here.  So much for downsizing 200 yards this year!  {{blushes}}
