After all the testing and drama with the Spoonflower fabrics, I ended up having them all refunded. So that fabric came back out of my stash. (I did reshop with my birthday money - it will be in next week's stash report I expect.)
And just a tad of fabric came in from Kerri's etsy shop - I had to have a couple pieces for a special quilt I started this weekend.
Today a friend of mine is having a mastectomy and will be starting chemo soon. (I just got an email and her surgery has gone very well this morning.) I wanted to make something fun and sunny. I think there will be days where she's very tired and feeling down and thought a happy quilt could be nice.
I'm having a great time making fun blocks! And I'm having a good stash week.

I love these! Neat to see after we were just talking about improv blocks. :)
My favorite is the blue one in the first picture, where the white & blue strips weave around the rectangle.
I'll be thinking of your friend; what a wonderful gift, and I definitely think it's going to be a sunny quilt!
Love your happy quilt and I am sure your friend will love it as well as the thought behind it!
I love those colors and blocks!
So gorgeous, and so thoughtful. I love those colours.
Once again, your heart is peeping through the clouds and it's brilliant!
Love the blocks and the blue is my favorite!
Your blocks are looking fabulous! What I great thing for you to do for your friend. We'll say a prayer for her.
I love where you are going with this! great colors!
What a special quilt for your friend this will be! I am intrigued with your layout and can't wait to see the final project.
this is amazing....i love it. your friend is going to love it. it is like a quilt of happiness...loving the orange and blue.
Absolutely beautiful! Simple yet stunning.
Once again, I'm inspired by your work - I have that Happy Campers fabric in a little jumper that my daughter has outgrown. Now I know how I'm going to use the bits I plan to cut up!
they are so cute!
And so wonderful to give to your friend.
I love the colors! That quilt will be perfect and way to go with the stash busting!
Very sweet of you to make a bright cheery quilt for your friend! Thank you for sharing.
What a great idea to make your friend a happy quilt. I think that is a perfect gift. And those colors and fabrics are very happy, love it!!!!
I tested my fabric I bought from spoonflower and it got worse, so I am getting a replacement shipment. Hopefully the next batch will be better.
I'm sure this quilt will lift her on those down days!
what a cheerful quilt! lovely.
I'm sure your friend will enjoy and be cheered by the quilt! You have a fabulous stash!
Gorgeous blocks! Where do you find all that fun fabric?
You have such a great eye. I am glad the surgery went smoothly.
Oh my goodness, these are my favourite colours and when I opened this page, I held my breath with excitement! I love these blocks - and your fussy cuts are perfect!
My thoughts and prayers are with your friend. My mother is a 6-year survivor and I wish your friend the same success!
My prayers and thoughts go out to your friend. I had a double mastectomy years ago and have been cancer free ever since. I know that she will love that beautiful sunny quilt to wrap herself up in on bad days. God Bless Sandra
