Sunday Stash Report: 3/7/21

No new fabric! I used three and a quarter yards to make the last baby quilt.

  • This week: + 0 yards, – 3.25 yards
  • This year: +19.5 yards, -37.5 yards
  • Net fabric destashed/added this year: 18 yards

Keep using your stash!


Another Baby Finish

I made this quilt using some “Remix” lollies fabric by Jen Kingwell for Moda.

I know this isn’t the way most people use a lollie, but I wanted to include the black and white dividing lines and to make the colors very random. The randomness didn’t really work out- there’s a lot of gold in this! I’ll cut it differently when I use the rest.

This is in my Etsy shop.

Sunday Stash Report: 2/28/21

This week I added eight and a half yards of new fabric to my stash. But, as you can see, it was completely necessary.

This week I used three and a half yards for the Star Wars baby quilt, and donated seven yards.

  • This week: + 8.5 yards, – 10.5 yards
  • This year: +19.5 yards, -34.25 yards
  • Net fabric destashed/added this year: 14.75 yards

Use your stash or share it!


Star Wars Finish

Very pleased with how the Star Wars baby quilt came out.

I love the ombre fabric I used for the border, but I wish it were a bit darker/ more distinct in the fade.

The wavy quilting is in rainbow Fantastico from Superior.  It really picks up the colors in the fabrics.

This will be in my Etsy shop when the weather improves and I can get some better pictures.

Sunday Stash Report: 2/14/21

Besides the Baby Yoda quilt, this week I used 1.75 yards from my string bins to make these blocks for Kat’s January/February block drive. Some are definitely more effective than others, but I learned as I went along. It’s a good exercise in color and value. They also used a lot of batting scraps.

  • This week: + 0 yards, – 5.25 yards
  • This year: +11 yards, -23.75 yards
  • Net fabric destashed/added this year: 12.75 yards

Stay safe, stay warm, and keep sewing your stash.

Another Friday Finish

All this snow makes for pretty pictures, but it’s hard to get the exposure right for quilts.

This quilt started with the Baby Yoda fabric. It looks cute enough, but it was difficult to put other fabric with it. I didn’t want a really dark baby quilt, so I kept trying to use lighter fabric. As you saw, the mustard didn’t work.

I settled on these blues and grays, and lightened it up with some improv stars. I’m happy with the result.

Find this quilt in my Etsy shop.

And stay warm.
