Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art


Sunday Stash Report: 2/10/19

February’s Stash Enhancement is beautiful whites. I was down to a quarter yard of Kona White and yard of Snow. Now I have some choices!

This week: + 9.5 yards, – .25 yards

This year: + 22.5 yards, – 19.5 yards

Net destashed added in 2019: 3 yards

So, back in the red, but that’s okay.

The quarter yard I used was to line this zipper pouch made from an upcycled t shirt. Look for it soon in my Etsy shop.


Sunday Stash Report: 2/3/19

No new fabric, and the donation blocks used 3.75 yards of stash fabric.


This week: + 0 yards, – 3.75 yards

This year: + 13 yards, – 19.25 yards

Net destashed added in 2019: 6.25 yards

Go use your stash!


Friday Finish: Donation Blocks

On this snowy day today I finished a dozen donation string blocks for Kat’s Covered in Love.

Oh, the memories! I know from which project every string came.

After a while it dawned on me to use my walking foot, and that worked very well.

And I got to use my new Christmas gift 14″ turntable cutting board. It has foam on the back, and the base really stayed in place while I turned the top.

Kat specified that you should use a cat to press your blocks. These should certainly be flat enough! (He wants to be let out or fed or, really, for me to make the weather warmer. I would if I could, Yuri!)
