Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report


Did I mention that I had a lot of Christmas fabric in stash? To see if I was remembering correctly, I pulled it all out yesterday. Yeah, it’s quite a bit. And when I looked at the fabrics I had pulled last November for the Oh, My Stars quilt along by Sheila at Thought and Found, I had a renewed urge to sew them. I joined last year with good intentions. We all told her it was a busy time of year, and that we might get a little behind, but slowly the blocks and then the quilts appeared on Flickr, and I had not even cut into my fabric. It seems a little early for Christmas sewing, but I think it’s now or never. Nonnie just found this quilt and wants to make one, but I don’t think that influenced me. This has been on my conscience all year. This quilt has many, intricate variations to choose from, especially challenging on the little 4″ stars. I know I won’t have the patience for those. I’ve cut some of the large (12″) stars in the simplest design and will see where I go next.

This week: 0 yards in, 6 yards used (baseball baby quilt)
YTD: +99 yards, -171 yards
Net stash used in 2012: 72 yards.

  1. I think scrappy Christmas stars is a fabulous idea and starting now is even better. Keep us posted on your progress. Nice fabrics 😉

  2. Same here – I need to work on my Christmas quilt. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Alternatively you could use all the Christmas fabric to make gift bags. See: http://artquiltmaker.com/blog/2009/10/gift-bags-return/

  4. PS The stars are fun. JL
