Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 1/15/17


Um, yes I did buy fabric this week.  Or, rather, I mostly bought fabric during December sales and it arrived this week.  Like, um, 32 yards of the stuff.

The batik on the left is my background for Surrounded by Scraps, Charlotte’s mystery quilt for this year.

And I have plans for all of this.

This week I made one more baby quilt, similar to, and using scraps from this one.  That used 3.5 yards.

This week:  + 32 yards,  – 3.5 yards
This year: + 38 yards,  – 10.5 yards
Net destashed added in 2017:  27.5 yards

Also, this week I received a number of goodies from Amazon  (DH says I’m the reason they had to add 1000 new employees…).  Anyway, they include fusible I’m out of, pins, spray baste, a desperately needed new ironing board cover, a white board, and a new iron!  My current iron still worked, but wasn’t very effective.  I never felt it heated up as well as my little $10 Sunbeam I use on my pressing mat.  So I got a $23 Sunbeam Steam Master 1400!  And I love it!  Non-stick sole plate, retractable cord, 3-way auto-off.  Heats right up, and blinks when it’s cooling down.  Now I have no excuses for not getting lots of work done.

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

  1. Love the batik and al the paw print fabric. Think of it as motivation to sew more.

  2. How fun! Lots of new fun toys to play with. Thanks for letting me know which iron you use. I am always curious.
