Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 8/24/14



Chugging along here, making pretty things, but no finishes.  I had to buy 3 pieces (2yds.) of blue fabrics to audition to add elephants to my gray and white quilt.  Work on this gave rise to some humorous elephant conversations on Twitter, but I got the elephants appliqued yesterday.  With any luck, I’ll quilt that up today.

This week: +2 yards, -0 yards
YTD: +93.25 yards, -136 yards
Net stash used 2014: -41.75 yards


Here’s one yard of fabric that I won’t be counting.  I finally had my labels printed at Spoonflower.  They’re exactly what I’ve been printing at home on Quick Fuse fabric sheets, but it feels better to have a whole yard and the ability to order more.  The fabric sheets are pricey, sometimes hard to find, and my printer sometimes prints poorly and sometimes does not talk to my computer.  I also expect that these will resist fading.  (I have tried Printed Treasures, but I don’t think they are as colorfast as Quick Fuse.)  Now I’m set.

Hope your stash is going the way you want it.  I’m linking up with Sunday Stash Report at Patchwork Times.

  1. Your custom labels are really neat. What a great idea!

  2. The quilt is so cute.

    I’ve thought about printing labels from Spoonflower, I guess I better get on the ball.
