Onto Stashbuster #2.... Amanda Murphy's Garden Path
http://www.amandamurphydesign.com/patterns.asp The patterns themselves are awesome. They have great instructions, awesome graphics, full-color booklet, and it really makes you feel like it was worth your $10.
Now, onto the actually pattern.... it really is great for a Stashbuster since it uses common "stash" purchases. I'm always picking up Jelly Rolls, Border fabric, Brights and of late.. background fabric. Buying background fabric is something really new for me. It was something I was lacking in my Stash before. So, now when I see a great background fabric on sale, I pick it up. Note, some stores will actually give you a discount if you purchase the whole bolt of background fabric. It's a good investment, this way when you want to use those other fabrics in your stash, you have the perfect background fabric.
So, back to the pattern; Garden Party, by Amanda Murphy calls for;
- A Jelly Roll
- Background - 3-3/4 yards of fabric
- Inner Border and Accent Squares - 1-1/4 yard of fabric
- Outer Border - 1-1/2 yards of fabric
- Binding - 3/4 yard of fabric
