Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report, etc.: 9/13/15


The weather changed abruptly here this week, and today is a cool, crisp, sunny fall day.  Did I work outside?  No, I sewed most of the day, till my thread started shredding, and I decided that retreat was in order.  Live to fight another day, etc.

2015-09-12 15.55.45I spent the last few days making these storage cubes from bird seed bags, so no fabric was used there.  Anyone interested in a tutorial?

2015-09-13 13.24.03I did make these twelve hashtag blocks for a #Twilter swap coming up, so I used two and a half yards there.  These aren’t trimmed yet, but they’ll be twelve inches square.  I have more to make, but I’d had enough so I took a break.

And, no new fabric came in this week!

This week:  + 0 yards,  – 2.5 yards
This year:  + 91.75 yards,  – 125.00 yards
Net fabric destashed  in 2015:  33.25 yards


I appreciate everyone’s comments!  Sometimes I’m bad about replying to them.  Sometimes they don’t really seem to need an answer, since they are already an answer, and someone has to hang up the phone!  Sometimes I just don’t get to them, or I’m on the wrong device and can’t see your email.  This week I answered a bunch of nice comments, and now I don’t see most of  them in my sent box, so I have no idea which ones got through.  Sigh.  Thanks for reading, anyway!

Good luck on your destashing!  I’m linking up to Judy’s report at Patchwork Times.

  1. Yes, I’m definitely interested in a tutorial.

  2. Or cute blocks when autocorrect isn’t acting stupid.

  3. Like your striped fabric. How many do you plan to make?
