Stashbuster attempt

Yesterday I had a few hours to myself and what’s a quilter gonna do … roaming the Internet, looking at beautiful quilts, reading long neglected blogs and getting a lot of inspiration.

And then I stumbled across this quilt by Canadian quilter Katja Marek.

What a beauty!

Coincidentally I was thinking about sewing a color wheel quilt in the last few weeks. And about a stashbuster project to get rid of (at least) some of my scraps. This quilt just seems to be the perfect solution.

So I bought the corresponding book by Katja Marek which is her second one. And as I liked the blocks in her first book a little bit better I also bought that one. So two new books with a total of 104 blocks for English paper piecing.

I think I will only do the star with its six parts in yellow, green, blue, purple, red and orange. And I have the best intentions to only use my stash (but I can’t promise).

Yesterday evening I raided my yellow stash and printed out the pattern pieces for the first block. I already cut them out. Now I need to iron the scraps and then I’m looking forward to relaxing hours on my balcony with my EPP star.
