Sunday Stash Report: 2/20/2022

No new fabric this week, and I used 3.5 yards to make the Animals #2 baby quilt.

  • This week: + 0 yards, – 3.5 yards
  • This year: + 7 yards, – 16.0 yards
  • Net fabric destashed/added this year: 9.0 yards

Yuri’s pretty serious about you using your stash.

Take care.

Animal Finish #2

Here’s the finished baby quilt from the Bramble fabric. It’s a good thing its finished, because the first one sold yesterday!

Careful observers will note the glenn plaid border that was supposed to go on the other one. It almost didn’t make it onto here, either, but I added a cream flange that separated it enough to make it work.

I like the checkerboard embroidery I used on the quad blocks (partially to hide the dotted line printed there). Next time I will embroider the blocks before they are assembled into the top. Live and learn!

Get this one quickly, before it’s gone from my Etsy shop!

Sunday Stash Report: 2/13/2022

In the last two weeks I have bought NO fabric! All I’ve finished sewing was the animal quilt.

  • This week: + 0 yards, – 2.75 yards
  • This year: + 7 yards, – 12.5 yards
  • Net fabric destashed/added this year: 5.5 yards

Creeping along, but using the stash!

Quick Friday Finish

I thought this panel was very cute, but I really bought it to use this piece of ombre Chevron as a backing.

Just a quick border that also uses a stash dog hard-to-use fabric and then I quilted around all the animals and their frames.

This is in my Etsy shop.
