InstructionsAlthough this is a commercial pattern, I was able to figure it out by looking at a picture of the quilt.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Funky, Mod
Cotton quilting fabric, warm and natural batting
What was your inspiration?
I saw a picture of a quilt made from Kaffe Fassett fabrics in a newsletter I received from a local quilt shop. The pattern is called Hot Tamale by Villa Rosa Designs. The overall size of the quilt was given, so I counted the number of blocks and did the math. I don't particularly care for Kaffe Fassett fabrics, and I already have a bunch of really colorful fabrics in my stash. I decided to make a quilt strictly from my stash. I even used stash fabrics to piece the back side of the quilt.
What are you most proud of?
I love the name of this quilt... I had the top pieced and laying out on the bed in our guest room, my daughter saw it and said, "It looks like your stash threw up on the bed." I thought that was so funny, I named the quilt, Stash Vomit!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you like the pattern, but you don't have a lot of experience with quilting, buy the pattern.
