Stash Statement Blog Tour


Welcome all you Sassy quilters! Today is the final stop on the Stash Statement Blog Tour.

I was so excited when Kelly@My Quilt Infatuation asked me to participate! This is Kelly Young’s new book called Stash Statement. It is all about improv… and to be honest improv is not something I have done a lot of, but I have a ton of scraps and was ready to try her technique.

I created a quilt from Kelly’s Bonus Pattern called Take Flight.

I decided to make a mini version of this quilt and reversed the improv areas with the solid wings.

Mine finishes at 26 x 28.

I just loved how bright and colorful the improv turned out. It was very easy and free spirited. Playing with all your old scraps reminds you of the quilts you’ve made…and that makes me smile!


I quilted it with an all over stipple… used a light gray on the background areas and a darker gray on the wings. I really wanted you to focus on the piecing and color more that the quilting.

And…. never forget your label!


This is the original version by  Kelly@My Quilt Infatuation.

The original pattern finishes at 55 x 60.

So if you have been dying to give improv a try…this is the book for you. She has an easy approach to making some fun and beautiful quilts!

You can find her book HERE!

  1. Your mini is so fantastic, Paula! I love the improv wings so much! Thank you again for helping me launch my book!

    :) Kelly

  2. Anja @ Anja Quilts says:

    Well done. Your version is wonderful.

  3. Beautiful work Paula! I just dropped in as I am reflecting on those of us who took part in the new blogger hop way back when. Glad to see you are still quilting on!

      I still remember everyone who started together too! Great group of people. You have done so well! Way to stick with it:)

  4. Susan Shaw says:

    Hi Paula, I had lost you – I was trying to remember the name of your blog and could not for the life of me. I just found you again today in my Bloglovin’ rollcall. I still have my triangle quilt to sew that I started when you did a QAL. I’ll still get it done someday – lots has happened since then. I’m thrilledto have reconnected as I had always enjoyed your blog and all your enthusiasm. Hope is all. When I saw your quilt – I saw two people head to head. It’s amazing how people see different things. As always = amazing job. Looking forward to staying connected now that I have found you again. I need to have more positive posts in my roll.

  5. Even though metal frames are typically used by artwork photographers to aid
    basically black or white photographs stand out, artists will usually pick
    a custom wood frame to beautify their artwork. The most frequent examples in this region are televisions, comic books, magazines,
    digests, etc. When you are able to get the best institute your neighborhood, you will need to able to find
    admission inside the regular courses.
