Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 7/14/19


Heres a little patriotic spirit for you in July!

Not much sewing this week, but no new fabric, either.

I’ve been uninspired to see, but that’s when a simple project like donation blocks comes in handy. I pulled fabric one day, cut and tried out a block one day, cut the rest, sewed two, then three, and, finally chain-pieced the last four in record time. So I have a dozen blocks ready to ship off to Kat for her July/August block drive, using 2.25 yards of fabric. In the process, I also found about 2 yards to dispose of or donate.

This star isn’t very original, but it worked for me this time. They’re super easy, with very few points to match. Also, I have lots of 3.5″ scraps, so a 16-patch star worked well for me. (I see that they look really similar to the ones I made last year, but that was a different construction technique. I made these using sew-and-flip flying geese.)

This week: + 0 yards, – 4.25 yards

This year: + 50 yards, – 65.50 yards

Net destashed added in 2019: 15.50 yards

Are you getting much sewing done this summer?

  1. This is a great pattern and they look nice in the red, whites and blues. Sewing something simple is better than not sewing something at all. I really like these blocks and you get to do some good.
