Fat Quarter friendly
Glowing is a really great stash quilt! Use a favorite fat quarter bundle or create your own from your stash. The quilt below was pulled from my stash. It’s an assortment of fabrics inspired by the Ruby Star Society Warp and Weft fabric line.
The exact fabrics are listed and linked in this blog post.
Stash Friendly quilt
I’m running pretty low on fabric bundles over here so I decided to try something a little different for my quilt along Glowing quilt. I’m doing all of my blocks in Navy, minty aqua and green.
So I pulled 12 different navy fat quarters from my stash. I’m so excited to find a way to finally use up these fat quarters. I also pulled 6 minty aqua fat quarters for the centers and then green scraps for the plus signs.
Even my background will be pulled from my stash! I’m using leftover low volume fabrics for my background.
I’m pretty excited to make this quilt 100% from my stash. If you are running low on bundles, I encourage you to do the same! Stick with one continuous block colorway like this.
Above is my test block and I have to say, I’m pretty excited!
And below is a mock up I did in these colors.
Skip the sashing
If you really don’t like adding sashing to your quilts, you can skip it on Glowing! Below are a few mock ups with and without sashing.
Above mock up is using Ruby Star Society Smol.
