Design Wall Monday 7-1-13 and Stashbusting

Finished this charity baby quilt.  I was given a stack of 6.5" flannel squares two months ago at guild.  I found some peach and green hand dyed flannel I had done many years ago and thought, why not?  I had to piece the back but used white flannel for the binding.  Is it the most beautiful quilt I ever made?  Not to me.  But I know it will be a wonderful snuggly quilt for some child.  I used a multistitch zigzag to quilt it on the diagonal lines. I'm happy I could get this completely finished even with Ruthie in pieces in the other room. 
Next up is the current brown bag at Country Piecemakers.  Darlene gave us the Lazy Angle ruler to work with.  After I cut the my first effort incorrectly I tried again. Mine is the green boat at the bottom.  There wasn't enough backing fabric so I didn't make the star but I did cut the pieces from the green and blue polka dots so she could make one if she wanted to.  I liked the block so well that I cut pieces to make 7 more blocks so that I could also use them with some pinwheel blocks I have.  I see another baby quilt in my life at some point.

Here it is July 1st so it's also time for my stashbusting report.  Or, as is the case this month, stash building report!
