Stash Buster

Is your fabric stash to full?   Here's an idea:

My husband's younger sister will be turning 49 this month and her husband 50 so they are holding a combined "99" year birthday party.  This quilt is our gift to them.  99 blocks for each year totally made from my stash including the backing.   This is an example of using batiks and other quilting fabrics successfully together.  My rule was to ensure that the 5" (cut) center of each block was darker that its surrounding 2" (cut) border.

Happy quilting
