Bust that Stash

The April badge for the 2007 Fabric Diet says Bust that Stash, and in the meeting point of stash busting, an urge for a quick project and the spirit of making do this quilt is born and not far from finished - another care quilt.

Most of the fabrics are from the fabrics given to me for the care quilt purpose. I have added some for variety - one of the more yellow ones and a couple of the more orange ones.
I used my dark dull rust ones for backing - from the 1990s.

The quilt is now quilted, with curved seams and yellow thread, twice through all the squares.

Now I will add some small triangles here and there, in colours to add interest. If you see the colour wheel the good colours to add to this orange / orange red quilt are blue violet to violet on one side and green to yellow green on the other side.
I will applique through all layers with machine.

I am just playing and winging it as I go, so I will have to audition some choices tomorrow, in good day light.

I am contemplating doing Judy L.'s challenge anyway. Just have to finish this one first. I can do a little every day and I want to make a smaller quilt.
I am in stashbuster mood indeed!

You go girl! Bust that stash indeed. What a wonderful top and I love the idea of the triangles to jazz it up a bit. Isn't it wonderful to have a play day in the sewing room and have it turn out this nice?
