Stashbusting

Haven’t done much sewing, but I did cut and  “kit” up a new quilt.   This one is in scrappy greens.   Have a couple of projects I need to finish before I can stitch this one, but at least it’s ready.  I prefer projects I can grab and sew when the mood hits without having to press and cut. 

There’s also that little matter of a trip to Hobby Lobby that has to be accounted for.   One always needs solids…and I needed more ash grey and a slate blue for backgrounds and bindings on quilts that are already started.   That’s all I looked at and all I bought.   That’s not to say I’m going to always be this good…lol…there are a few fabrics I would like to add to my stash.

I finished my 13 cupcake blocks, pressed, trimmed and packaged for mailing to Denise.  :-)  Feels good to have those done.  Now to plan out a quilt for when my swap blocks come back.   I also finished the binding on a green & scrappy string pieced “Rocky Road to Kansas”.  I’ll post that when I finish the binding on the next one.   These quilts have all been counted in the Charity Quilt total.

  1. You’re so far ahead on fabric used, and charity quilts made already this year, that I certainly wouldn’t worry about buying a measly 4 yards!!! :-)
