Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report and April/May Goals


IMG_2637Okay, I bought half a yard of fabric!  I needed it to bind the Coral and Aqua baby quilt.  And that finish finally starts to move my numbers again.

This week:  + .5 yards,  – 3.25 yards
This year: + 48 yards,  – 70.75 yards
Net destashed in 2016:  22.75 yards


April was a weird month, with my knee surgery and very little sewing.  I finally got back to the sewing these last two weeks, but only for an hour or two at a time.  I did watch some Craftsy classes and listened to a few podcasts, but I wasn’t really in the mood.  Mostly I read, and stayed caught up on your blogs and social media.

April Goals:

  1. Complete Clue 4 for Charlotte’s Scrappy Blocks Around the Corner.  Yes!  Here.
  2. Make blocks for Kat’s April Block Drive.  I did not.
  3. Watch my Craftsy Classes.  Yes, I watched parts of “Cut to It” (Caffrey) and “Creative Quilting with Your Walking Foot” (Gerhing).  Of course, I bought three more classes, so I’m not caught up…
  4. Catch up, more or less, on quilty podcasts.  I am no where near caught up, but I did listen to several.

(These are modest to accommodate my recovery from having my left knee partially replaced.)

Bonus:  I finished the Coral and Aqua Baby Quilt.


I’m still not enjoying sewing for long periods of time, because of the knee pain, and I know I’ll be gone at least one week in May, so I’m not counting on getting too much done.

May Goals:

  1. Make blocks for Kat’s May block drive.
  2. Make Birds in the Air blocks for the Twilters! swap.
  3. Finish cleaning behind the door in my studio.
  4. Make a baby quilt for my shop.


Hope you’re using your stash, and accomplishing your goals!  I’m linking up to the Stash Report at Patchwork Times.

  1. I think you did pretty well considering the surgery. Watching Craftsy classes and listening to podcasts is a good way to get inspired for when you feel better.

  2. Glad you are healing. I think your gorgeous kitty has claimed that cute quilt.
