Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash and March/April Goals


2016-03-27 10.36.54This week I didn’t buy fabric and I did use 4.25 yards for a commissioned baby quilt.

2016-03-21 15.39.12This week:  + 0 yards,  – 4.25 yards
This year: + 47.5 yards,  – 67.5 yards
Net destashed in 2016:  20.00 yards


March Goals

  1. Complete the third clue for Charlotte’s Scrappy Stars Around the Corner.  Yes!  Right here.
  2. Make a back and donate it with the top from Gyleen’s Bricks, Cobblestones, and Pebbles mystery quilt.  Well, it’s not mailed yet, but I did make  buy a wide piece of backing to send with it.
  3. Clear the area behind the door in my studio.  This is mostly finished.  There is still a large photo to hang and a couple things I haven’t made decisions about yet.
  4. Make donation blocks for Kat’s March Drive.  Yes!  Here.
  5. Make some summer-themed wall hangings.  Yes!  Here.
  6. Participate in Darla’s March-A-Long, where we sew a little every day. Yes!  I’m very proud that I spent at least 15 minutes, usually much more, sewing/designing/cleaning the studio every day though March 27.

Bonus:  I made two jungle-themed baby quilts, inspired by fabric I had bought 0ver Christmas.  And I made some blocks for Alycia’s drive.


For April, I don’t have many sewing goals.  I’m going to have a partial knee replacement on Monday, so it will be a while till I can climb up to the studio to work.  In the meantime, I got out some old knitting projects, and I’ll try to catch up all the audio and visual quilting things I usually put off.

April Goals:

  1. Complete Clue 4 for Charlotte’s Scrappy Blocks Around the Corner.
  2. Make blocks for Kat’s April Block Drive.
  3. Watch my Craftsy Classes.
  4. Catch up, more or less, on quilty podcasts.
  5. Work on knitting UFOs.

Happy Easter to everyone!  I’m linking up to the Stash Report at Patchwork Times.

  1. Great stash management this year. Hope your surgery goes well and you are soon climbing the stairs for more stitching.

  2. Great job on the March goals, and the April ones look very realistic. Good luck with your partial replacement, and don’t forget to do the therapy! Praying all goes well.

  3. I hope your surgery went awesomely and the recovery does as well!
