Now, if I didn't have a stash this current project probably never would have happened.
The nursery panel in the middle I picked up in a remnant bin in a quilt store in Sydney whilst there on holiday.
The pink stripey fabric I have used as a border is the remainder of some bargain priced yardage I bought last time I visited Seattle WA.
If didn't have a stash I would not have been able to add some silk and ribbon tags within the seam lines. My stash provided variety for the other tags as well.
I have been pondering making a 'tactile' quilt for a while. In the meantime my granddaughter, Anna-Clara is growing up very quickly. Now 9 months, sitting up and on the move, all too soon her need for such a thing may be gone.
I well remember all of my boys liking to hold fabric, especially when breast or bottle feeding and I think Anna-Clara is no exception so the plan is to complete for her and get this quilt on the way.
As well as the tags around the nursery panel I have some lovely soft Minky fabric (another something in my stash) to put on the back. I hope it will be a totally tactile experience for this little girl.
Another search in my stash should reveal some fabric suitable for a magic binding - yes every quilter needs to have a stash for projects such as these.
