The book includes not only 20 Stash-Building patterns for kids but is packed full of wonderful information about Color and Fabric, Tools and Techniques as well as Maintaining your Stash. I especially love that examples of each pattern is shown in both a cool and warm color palette.
|Blocks On the Design Wall|
For the background, I used both the right and wrong side of a blender fabric and strategically placed them to give a subtle secondary pattern for added interest and play. I also added background around the blocks and used a four by four layout instead for a square quilt finishing at about 60".

More Butterfly Kisses Glamour Shots
Yesterday on my way home I just had to stop for another photo shoot. The sky was blue and the temp mid-70's, my personal sweet-spot for weather. The view of New Brighton State Beach was so pretty and I did a clever positioning of the drape to edit out the many visitors here on Spring Break.
