Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 5/5/13



Lots of fabric pulled out, piled up, and all over the design wall, but only one small finish this week.  That’s okay.  My numbers are good.  I’m especially pleased to be finding uses for some long-time Stash Dogs.  Those “what was I thinking?” pieces, or fabrics that are pretty/striking/interesting by themselves, but don’t go with anything else.  Or that looked different online.  Making some progress on those.  I find that if I leave them out, or at least at the top of their baskets, then they are more likely to occur to me when I need something.



This week:  +0 yards,  -3.5 yards

YTD:  +50.5 yards,  -123.5 yards

Net Stash Used in 2013:  -73 yards

How about you?  Are you using it up to make way for new, pretty fabric?



I’m linking up with Sunday Stash Report at Patchwork Times.

I'm Valerie, also known as Scooquilt. I am passionate about fabric and quilting. My quilts are colorful and modern, but grounded in traditional blocks. My degrees are in Fine Arts and Education. I'm retired from teaching and trying to quilt daily. Reading, gardening, and cats are also important to me.

  1. I am really trying here, Valerie! This week is just catching up on BOM blocks, I’m at May at least! I have a huge bag of scraps as a result :)) Is THAT Yuri again? :)))) Happy Sunday!

  2. i’m a fairly new quilter so I don’t have a stash of scraps yet, but I am trying to make a baby quilt from what I have on hand, hope it turns out okay

  3. Love the captions on your photos–Haven’t heard the term Stash Dog before but I think I’ll start using it!
