Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art


Sunday Stash Report: 1/19/20

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

Total destashed / added in 2020:  0.5 yards



Now, back to using that stash!


Chartreuse and White Quilt

2020-01-17 16.24.21When 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?


2020-01-17 16.24.42I still like it, and I like the diagonal quilting, which changes directions a couple of times.


2020-01-17 16.24.59This 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.


2020-01-17 16.25.32Of course, I’ve had it inspected.  It passed.

Good luck on your finishes!

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

We’re linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.


WIP Wed…Whatever

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!

2020 Goals

Image result for goals clipart free

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.

January Goals:

  1. Cut fabric for Charlotte’s Scrap Fantasy Medallion.
  2. Complete Clue #1 for Scrap Fantasy.
  3. Design a throw quilt to be made with chartreuse fabrics.
  4. Begin making blocks for the chartreuse quilt.
  5. Donate pillowcases and baby quilts.
