Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 1/17/16



As we say, nothing in and nothing out this week.  I have been sewing every day, though.  The weather here has been very cold or very wet, leaving nothing to do but stay inside and sew. 

I finished cutting for Scrappy Stars Around the Corner, and completed Clue 1.  I know this doesn’t look very scrappy, but there will be more variety in the rest of it.  I just have a lots of scraps of the same fabrics!  Repetition, unity, all that.

Next, I grabbed a bag of scraps that I was tired of seeing on my studio floor (apparently this is the genesis of many quilts!  😼), and I expect to finish that top today.  Still, no finishes to count out.

This week: + 0 yards,  – 0 yards
This year: +10 yards,  -12 yards
Net destashed in 2016:  2 yards


This is the elusive Anni Skywalker.  She doesn’t help with the quilts or the photography, but she enjoys a good quilt, especially on a snowy Sunday morning, so she assisted with this post.  It takes a menagerie.

We’re linking up to Judy’s 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 agree that unity and repetition are important even in a scrap quilt. Love black cats. Give Anni a scritch for me.

  2. I haven’t gotten it together yet to even get started on the first clue for scrappy stars. I’m saving all the instructions for when that mood will hit though. I loved Charlotte’s first two mysteries and I’m looking forward to working on this one when the mood hits.

  3. Love your scraps especially the cheddar and the black/brown with flies(?) Happy sewing!

  4. Interesting blocks and great cat/quilt pic. Who says nothing finished here? Looks sew successful to me 😉
