Adventures in Fabric Art

Not much sewing going on here this week, but I have worked diligently to clear up that mess behind my studio door.  Almost done.  Also, I boxed up a quilt and a top and back for donation and took them to the Post Office, so the fabric closet is looking better.

Four yards out this week for the Birds in the Air blocks, and nothing purchased.

This week:  + 0 yards,  – 4 yards
This year: + 53 yards,  – 75.5 yards
Net destashed in 2016:  22.5 yards

I was itching to sew something together (not the upholstery project I should be doing!), so I dug out these impressionist fabrics.  They were part of an estate, from a couple different companies, and one is dated 1997.  Do you think they’ve seasoned long enough?  They have a large repeat, so I don’t want to cut them up too much.  I’m thinking Rail Fence.  What do you think?

I’m linking up to the 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. Beautiful fabrics! Fence rails would be only 2″ or 3″ finished so it wouldn’t really show off fabrics. How about Snowballs? Bigger blocks which would show off fabric. Just my thoughts on your question.

  2. I think a row quilt – fast and easy would work. In between the rows you could put a row of blocks like pinwheels or another favorite.
