Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 11/6/16


I only had a couple of small finishes this week, but I didn’t buy any new fabric, so it’s good.

I made these six 12.5″ blocks for Kat’s November block drive.  These are quick and easy to make, and I could have made more, but I ran out of white/cream scraps. Still, they used about a yard of scraps.

This cat mat for Krissi used about 2.25 yards, almost all the scraps from the Lavender Baby Quilt.  I had fun playing around with free motion quilting on it.  I’m pleased with the paw prints down the center.

Krissi took a serious liking to that baby quilt, was on it constantly, and took it personally when I made her stay off long enough for me to quilt it.  I tend to think that fabric is fabric to a cat, and there’s certainly enough lying around the studio, even on the sunny cutting table.  

Instead, after I put the baby quilt away, this is where I found Krissi, day after day.  Followed by long, accusing looks at me.

So I made her the mat, and now this is where I find her every time I go up there. (That is her happy face.)

This week:  + 0 yards,  – 3.25 yards
This year: + 104.25 yards,  – 133 yards
Net destashed in 2016:  28.75 yards

Are you keeping you stash and your cats happy?

I’m linking up to the Stash Report at Patchwork Times.

  1. Your hot/cold blocks looks great! What a cute cat!!

  2. I’d have a problem with that much white. My scraps aren’t that big. I suppose I could cut into white. Glad Krissi likes her mat and the paw prints are fabulous!

  3. How sweet your cat looks, just enjoying her own little quilt made especially for her 😊
