More blue stuff

Here's another blue thing I made this month (technically, this is a photo of the blocks, but I have since sewn them together, just haven't taken a photo yet) to use up blue scraps in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. These pieces weren't strictly scraps, as they were from my box of small blue pieces, but none of them were large (except the lighter one, which is the same throughout).  I used to have 2 storage boxes of blue fabric (I use CD storage boxes from Ikea for all my different small pieces of fabric, organised by (mostly) colour) - one for darker and one for lighter and aqua fabric - it's now down to 1 box. It's crammed full, but it's all in one box.  We're getting there! (I'm not trying to get rid of all my stash, just trying to make it more sensible and manageable.)

It's nice to have stash, but definitely keeping it under the "there's no way I can use all this before I die" level is good. I tend to do better with less. I like this quilt, it's calm. Will there be a border, or as is?

I love this pattern. I am getting ready to start cutting the fabric for this pattern for a quilt for my youngest..... I have been working on building my stash and it is getting out of control already! I cannot wait to see your finished quilt!
