Back to the stash busting story

When I decided to make this scrappy chevron I chose to use the aqua/blue fabric I had bought in my recent stash busting exercise.

For the scrappy rows I wanted to use floral fabrics and was about to start sorting and cutting some of my stash when Linda said to me, 'You can look through my 3.5 inch squares if you like.'

135 x 3.5 inch floral squares later from Linda's stash and I was away.

No need to be looking through my stash any further.  So whose stash am I really busting here?
This is Linda's tray of 3.5' squares after I had removed the 135 pieces.

I think we could make quite a few scrappy quilts before they are all gone.

This is not to mention the various other trays she has with squares of varying sizes and the large box of strippy fabrics as well.

Had planned to get the binding on this quilt today but it did not quite happen.

Never mind, we can enjoy it until it goes to its new home.

I love the way Linda has incorporated heart shapes into the overall soft sculptures.

How long did it take you all up to make this quilt?
