June 2018 Book of the Month

Wow! Here we are in June already - this year is flying by! And that means there's a new Book of the Month feature!

                                                       Stash Statement by Kelly Young

This month, it's all about using those scraps in  Stash Statement (affiliate link) by Kelly Young of My Quilt Infatuation.

I had the pleasure of seeing several quilts from this book, up close and personal at Quilt Market, Portland. It was especially awesome to see the original of the quilt I'm making, Regatta.



I've shown you progress over the last few weeks, with this being my version of the quilt, as the size given in the book.



Measuring 60" x 60", I asked Kelly if I could make it bigger - she said sure, it's your quilt! So now I'm in the process of making more blocks to add 2 or 3 more rows, bringing the size to either 60" x 72" or 60" x 78".

In case you're just finding out about this book, there's a blog hop currently goingon that has a lot of bloggers making quilts from the book. Here's the full schedule:
