Design Wall Monday and Stash Report

Mondays are the days I try to update the status of my design wall and my fabric and yarn stash; I link up to Judy L.'s linkup parties at Patchwork Times for both things.
My Farmer's Wife Quilt blocks are all finished and in their final (I think) order on the design wall.  I'm starting the process of sashing them together and I really like the Kona Copenhagen as the sashing fabric... it will also be used for the outer border.  This has been such a happy quilt to make, I'm almost sad all the blocks are done.  All fabric except for the sashing comes from my stash, and all of the 111 blocks have something upcycled or thrifted, scrappy, or vintage in them.  In fact, most of the blocks are entirely made from those fabrics.
