Adventures in Fabric Art

August / September Goals, and Sunday Stash Report


2019-08-29 15.11.01

Wow, it’s been almost a month!  Sorry about that.  But I’m sewing again!  So here I am.

Entertaining, home renovation, and hot weather got in the way of sewing last month.  And, I was just plain tired of Handy Dandy.  The quilting was going fine, but I got sick of it and quit going up to work on it.  So I dumped it under a table, and started some more projects.

I made this baby quilt from a panel (yes, it’s a variation on one I’ve done before).

Then I used scraps to start some of these Christmas coasters.  Next up are some Christmas pieces for my shop  (doing better on sales lately!).


August Goals:

  1. Finish quilting Handy DandyNo.  I made progress, but not done.
  2. Bind Handy Dandy.  Nope!
  3. Make a baby quilt from a “Moon and Back” panel for my shop.  Yes!  Here.


September Goals:

  1. Make some Christmas coasters from scraps.
  2. Make a wall hanging from a printed panel.
  3. Start a nordic-themed quilt from a printed panel.


Meanwhile, in the Stash:

This week: + 3 yards, – 3.25 yards

This year: + 54.5 yards, – 68.75 yards

Net destashed added in 2019: 14.25 yards


Looking forward to seeing more of you as we move into fall here in the north!

  1. You are good about reporting what you have bought. I’ll think about doing that. Your moon baby quilt is adorable. Where do you find such cute panels. All the panels I see are metallic, filled with large animals and not cute.

  2. Thank you! This one might be hard to find because I think its last year’s (or older) fabric. I think it came from Etsy.
