I’m making a pair of pillow covers with th scraps from the Chartreuse and White Quilt.
Yes, I purchased some (a lot of) fabric this week. Good, good stuff that I really needed. The Chartreuse and White quilt used every last bit of my white Kona, but that’s all better now. The strange looking one is panel of sloths…
This week: + 13.5 yards, – 7 yards
This year: + 13.5 yards, – 13 yards
destashed / added in 2020: 0.5 yards
Now, back to using that stash!
When I designed this, I thought I had invented a Hugs and Kisses quilt. A quick internet search showed that I was way late on that, even though most of them are made differently from mine. I was going to change to Xs and Os (like Elle King), but that’s been used for quilts, too. So. Any ideas?
I still like it, and I like the diagonal quilting, which changes directions a couple of times.
This is entirely from stash. It’s 48″ x 72″. It’s pieced and quilted with white Bottom Line thread from Superior. Look for this in my Etsy shop soon.
Of course, I’ve had it inspected. It passed.
Good luck on your finishes!
We’re linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
Yesterday I completed the first clue for Charlotte’s 2020 mystery quilt, Scrap Fantasy Medallion.
Recognize the bird fabric? It looks a little out of place with the autumn tones, but I’m hoping it ends up on a good spot in the quilt to add a nice contrast. We shall see!
A new year, a clean slate, and some TIME, after Christmas and before the garden starts (at least for us up north).
I’m not going to write formal goals for this year, or choose a word.
I’ll put in a fresh rotary blade, tidy up my workspace, renew my list of potential projects.
I’ll straighten my fabric (someone seems to have been rifling through it!).
Then I’m just going to SEW.
I’ll continue to set my monthly goals, because they really do focus me and jog my memory. I’ll continue to log the use of existing fabric so that I can replace it with newer yardage. But that’s about it.
- Cut fabric for Charlotte’s Scrap Fantasy Medallion.
- Complete Clue #1 for Scrap Fantasy.
- Design a throw quilt to be made with chartreuse fabrics.
- Begin making blocks for the chartreuse quilt.
- Donate pillowcases and baby quilts.
No new fabric (yet!), and I finished these two little quilts.
This week: + 0 yards, – 6 yards
This year: + 0 yards, – 6 yards

Time to use that old fabric!
