Stash Report March 5 2017

Since I’ve got a finish this week, I can show some movement on my numbers. I still have two baby quilts to do, I’ve started on one at least. And two more people have asked if I would be willing to quilt for them on commission. I’ll be moving soon so I’m not sure how realistic that will be to take on. We’ll see!

Stash Report February 5 2017

Nothing in or out this week. I’ve finished piecing Butterfly Blossoms but I’ll count that once I finish quilting it. I’m still working on basting it at the moment. Here’s a funny picture from when I was piecing the top… I accidentally sewed a border on backwards, lol!

The rain finally stopped this week, so I decided to hang all of my son’s cloth diapers outside.

They were in serious need of some good ol’ natural sun bleaching. In the summer I used to hang them outside to dry after every wash, but they take so long to dry outside in the winter that I got out of the habit, and it shows. I’ve got a few used cloth diapers coming my way, more is always better! (they were used only for a month and I’ll be stripping them thoroughly before putting them on my baby)

And yes, that is my son’s wading pool from the summer still outside, waiting to be put away… judge not lest ye be judged!!

Stash Report January 22, 2017


It’s been raining here lately, here’s my dog Jetty cuddling up in his bed staying nice and cozy!

New Year, new stash numbers! I’m so happy. I ended 2016 using more fabric than I bought, but only by about 2 yards, so I’m hoping to do better this year. I have a finish under my belt already for this year which I’ll be posting about Friday, it was a fairly large quilt and all from my stash, yes!

I also started a new quilt. I am following the Butterfly Blossoms tutorial by MSQC. I used some Good Fortune by Kate Spain for Moda Charm Packs that I had bought a few years back for the quilt. Luckily I was able to find some yardage online for the border fabric. I thought I would be able to use some other fabric I had bought last year, but it didn’t look right. Hopefully I will be able to use that fabric for the backing.

My goal this year is to really thin out my stash. The Butterfly Blossoms quilt is for a cousin’s baby due in April and I’m happy I was able to use mostly fabric from my stash to make the quilt. I have another cousin due in May and I’m hoping to exclusively use fabric from my stash. It’s so hard with all these new adorable fabric lines coming out all the time!!

Today my son Henry is 13 months old! Here we are at JDRF’s One Walk last week to raise money to cure T1 Diabetes

Well, I have a quilt finish under my belt, thankfully, so I can show some movement on my numbers. I used a kit to make most of the quilt, and I never added that yardage to my numbers so I’ll just be counting the yardage I used for the border I added and the backing. I’m really happy because I used a few smaller pieces I’ve had forever to piece the back, so now those are out of my stash and just a few small bits made it to the scraps bin.

img_4967 I stopped by my local quilt shop and added some bright white fabric to my stash, I was all out, and picked up some In Dreams (Lavender) By Dear Stella Design to use as a border on another baby quilt. I’m hoping it will match with my Good Fortune Charm Packs from a couple of years ago.

Stash Report week 14 – 2015

Stash Report – 2015 Week14
No finishes this week and I have made no progress with my Meet in the Middle Quilt. Having an 8 week old makes quilting kind of difficult. I did buy some fabric this week for baby quilts. One is a quilt kit from FatQuarterShop.com for a Very Hungry caterpillar quilt, and two “Rolie Polie” pre-cuts. Can’t wait!

Another Project

2015-09-28 18.24.50

When I was working on the many flying geese units for my Sunburst Quilt, I thought about tossing the so-called “bonus triangles,” but there ended up being so many that I kept them in this tin. I know Ive heard of others using these HST and I thought I might, too. Lord knows I need more fabric added to my scraps pile [not really] so I hope I can come up with a project for these soon. Jean over at QuiltSocial has some good ideas. If you have any ideas feel free to share them! Hopefully this can be a project I can work on for some time like I intended for the Meet in the Middle project. 😛 Oh well, best laid plans!
