Let's Talk Stash

Kelly Young of My Quilt Infatuation recently wrote a book - Stash Statement.  Then she sent me an email. And I burst into a song...

The email was fantastic.
When I received it, I was ecstatic.
Stash Statement Quilts was on its way
Would I like to play?
I jumped in with both feet.
Watch this space, it is going to be a treat.

With rhyme and reason, excitement and anticipation, I have to tell you that today is the day when the Blog Hop for Stash Statement begins. 

The book is full of eye-candy, cool techniques and fabulous patterns. I am already knee-deep in my scraps, applying Kelly's techniques and turning chaos into order.  

Every week, two quilters will showcase one quilt from the book.  Here is the entire line-up. You don't want to miss it.

Be sure to check Kelly's blog because she is giving away two copies of the book.  I will be sharing with all my favorite linky parties. I'd love to hear your thoughts.


  1. Very cool! ( or hot - since your colors are reds and oranges!)

  2. "Turning chaos into order" is such a perfect way of putting it! Your blocks are gorgeous and will turn into a masterpiece, for sure! Your photos make me want to dig into my scrap bins and do the same. I'll be following along! Congrats!

  3. I agree with Kathy - love the phrase "turning chaos into order". Preeti, you are a very talented writer (and quilter!)

  4. I agree with Kathy and Bernie, that phrase "turning chaos into order" is perfect! I'm still swooning over your reds and oranges. I think that photo is quilt porn, right?? ;-) Cannot wait to see what you are creating!

  5. Love the turning choas into order! Can't wait to see your quilt when it's done.

  6. Yay! I'm excited to see your version of Fire Pit! :D

  7. I’m with We day on losing the teasers of quilt porn!! Cannot wait to see what you’ve done! That book cover—!!!

  8. Looks like playtime to me! I cannot wait to see what you are going to come up with! Kelly's book is amazing and its perfect for those who are a little afraid of improv!

  9. I"m all about scrappy quilts---especially since most all my fabric is given to me when someone cleans their stash, or I buy at yard sales, second hand shops and estate sales.

  10. Those blocks look fab. I'll be following the hop - it's so helpful to see inspirational ways to use scraps :-)

  11. Love your little rhyme! I can't wait to see your version of Kelly's quilt :)

  12. Love seeing these blocks with your “trademark” happy scraps!

  13. Oh how wonderful, I love the idea of improv using up my scraps and 'turning chaos into order', love that quote! Now I'm off to check it all out, I'll look forward to seeing your contribution.

  14. You've got a very fun starting point. Looking forward to your day on the hop.

  15. Looks fabulous! Kelly really makes using scraps so easy with this book - great patterns!

  16. And how did I miss that Kelly has a new book out?! Thank you for spreading the word. I can't wait to see your interpretations of her lovely designs!

  17. How exciting!!!! Enjoy! Love your colors!
