Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art


Sunday Stash Report and Finishes

I used three yards to make these twelve donation blocks for Kat’s Covered in Love block drive.

I also finished the new rainbow quilt from Kona solids.

I don’t like the solids as well, but I love how they look with the backing fabric. (I started one with narrow strips of prints and solids, but… maybe you’ll see it later if I can do anything with it.)

This week: + 0 yards, – 6.25 yards

This year: + 77.5 yards, – 100.5 yards

Total destashed / added in 2020: 23 yards

Keep using your stash!


Sunday Stash Report: 8/16/2020

Kona Baby Blue, Warm Sienna, Lake Blue, Cloud, Amber, and lots of White!

Oh, the numbers are going the wrong way but look how pretty!  Yes, I needed this.

I did use 6.5 yards to make the two Sloth baby quilts.

This week: + 11 yards, – 6.5 yards

This year: + 77.5 yards, – 94.25 yards

Total destashed / added in 2020: 16.75 yards

Do you have bits of red, white, and blue in your Stash?  The July/August Covered in Love block drive is a great way to put them to use.  No rules, just 12.5″ stars, any design!  (See, you can hardly tell that’s left-over Louisville Cardinal fabric… 😉. )

Take care!


Sunday Stash Report: 8/9/2020

There was new fabric this week, but I needed it. And I finished the Wild Animal baby quilt.

This week: + 5.25 yards, – 3.25 yards

This year: + 66.5 yards, – 87.75 yards

Total destashed / added in 2020: 21.25 yards

Keep using your stash!


Friday Finish: Wild Animals

Yes, they are all watching you!  Isn’t this a great panel?  I framed each animal up with some nubbins of fabrics, and then used the rest to make a scrappy binding.  All gone!

We debated some other background fabrics, but I felt like our choice was too busy, so I chose this subtle (boring?) light fabric, and I had just enough.

The owl fabric on the back was purchased for another project and never used, so here it is.  Yes, gold highlights.
