Summer Stash Challenge

At the beginning of the summer, June 10 (to be exact), Eileen and Ulla presented a challenge to their blog readers to use fabrics from their stash to make a quilt this summer. You can read about the challenge here. Our challenge was to be completed by either the first of August, or the end of August, whichever one we wanted.

Leave it to me to wait until the end of August to post about the fabrics I chose. It's better late than never, I suppose.

I haven't really done much sewing this summer since I was so busy with the Quilt Show, vacations, running kids here and there, and life in general. I did, however, decide what fabrics I wanted to use for my Summer Stash Challenge last week!

Yes, my summer stash challenge uses Halloween fabrics. This is only a small collection of fabrics that I am going to use to make my 4th grand-child a Halloween themed quilt. The other three have one, and I haven't made his, yet, poor kid.

Here he is last year sitting by his pumpkin! He'll be so cute this year cuddling with his Halloween quilt!

Other bloggers are doing fun stuff this Labor Day weekend, too! Judyhas a Labor Day quilt along going on. It involves using your stash, and her sharing one of her great designs! Bonnie is also doing a Labor Day scrap quilt using your stash. Let me know if you see other fun stuff quilters are doing for the Labor Day weekend!!

Yikes!!! I just noticed that part of the Summer Stash Challenge is to have your completed top quilted, too! I better get busy!!!
