More Stashbusting!!

I'm on a roll!

I was so excited about the scrappy log cabin quilt I finished a couple of days ago that I decided to keep going.  That quilt didn't seem to make even the smallest dent in my stash, so I decided to try another scrap quilt that has been on my list.

Have you seen Soul Searching by Kathy Doughty?  It is a quilt from her book Making Quilts.  It has been on my mind for a while.

I figured since I already had my 2 1/2 inch scrappy strips out I'd just go ahead and start.  New year motivation!!!

So here it is:

It was such a simple quilt to put together.  I spent way more time playing with the fabrics and picking out my scraps than I did acually piecing it.

 Aren't scrappy quilts just the best?

Two quilts in one week all from stash feels great!

I can't believe that I could make two entire quilts and see not even a little dent in my stash.  It makes me wonder just how many potential quilts are living in there.  :)

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. This one is just as pretty as the other one you made! I'd keep going if I were you... you're on a roll.

  2. Beautiful. You clearly have (had) some great fabrics to have such lovely pieces in your scraps. What do you plan to do with it?

    1. I'm not sure yet how I am going to quilt it...., but I will be keeping this beauty. :)

  3. I have a box of florals that I used to make a scrappy string quilt for a friend. when I was done there looked like there was more fabric than when I started since I fluffed the fabric!

  4. your scrappy quilt looks beautiful.
