Project Spectrum


From Lolly Girl, she runs Project Spectrum. A way of using up some stash with some colour guidance. (see right hand side of blog, link to Lolly Girl's blog)
This year she has set 3 colours every 2 months to make something in those colours. Lolly Girl is a knitter, but many people used the Project Spectrum for quilting, cross stitching, photography, card making and so much more. I have decided to use her colour themes, as inspiration to use up some of my stash.
The colours for February/March are Blue, White and Grey (she says Gray, but I changed it to the correct spelling ;) )

Here is the beginning of my Project Spectrum quilt for Feb/Mar. Embarrassingly, I didn't even need to get any fabric from the shelves, I managed to find all the blues and white/creams I needed in my boxes of strips.

This pattern is called Weed Whacker, from Quiltville on the internet

A no brainer pattern, where I don't have to think too much...so far so good, and only a little bit of unpicking where I must have dozed off and sewed the triangles to the wrong side on a few strips. 9inch blocks, means this one sews up quickly. At this rate, I may even get 2 quilts made for this period, and may even get to use some of the blue fabrics on my shelves....just need to find another no brainer pattern!

Great start to your new quilt - LOVE those blues (of course I'm biased haha). Can't wait to see what else you come up with this year :) I love your increased fabric stash - it's amazing how it just breeds and breeds on its own! ;)
