Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art


Sunday Stash and October/November Goals

2015-08-26 11.22.23 pm


Well, no fabric in, and I did complete a commissioned baby quilt (same as the one above, with purple accents for a girl), so the stash is creeping in the right direction.

This week:  + 0 yards,  – 3.5 yards
This year:  + 110.25 yards,  – 145.75 yards
Net fabric destashed  in 2015:  35.5 yards


October Goals

  1.  Piece and quilt Boxed Elephant baby quilt commission.  Yes!  Here it is.
  2. Quilt and bind Gold and Turquoise quilt.  Yes!  Turned out great.
  3. Piece top from Twilter Hashtag blocks.  No, I was confused about this, and we won’t even get our blocks until this month.  Instead I started the Droid Quilt Along on The Stitch TV Show.  Have I kept up with it?  No.  But the back is made!
  4. Make new baby quilt with elephant scraps.  No, there were no useful scraps from this.  But I’m almost finished with a baby quilt made from the scraps from my Droid quilt backing.  And I did that new Star Wars commission baby quilt.

As you see there are a couple of “no, but”s in there, but I’m mostly pleased with what I accomplished.  Just have to get on that Droid quilt.

November Goals

  1. Piece the top from the Hashtag blocks when they arrive.
  2. Bind the scrappy Star Wars baby quilt.
  3. Catch up on the Droid Quilt Along.
  4. Make scrappy Maple Leaf blocks for Kat’s November Block Drive.

I notice there are no Christmas projects in there.  I may not make many homemade gifts, but I have a few vague ideas, so we’ll see.  There’s still loads of time, right?

Hope you’re progressing on all of your stuff!  I’m linking up to Judy’s report at Patchwork Times.

Sunday Stash Report: 10/11/15

2015-10-09 14.22.57Ah, fabric was purchased this week, but it’s okay.  It’s for the Droid Quilt Along taking place over at The Stitch TV Show.  Cutting directions start tomorrow, and the quilt will be finished in time for Christmas.

DroidQAL-Badge-e1444263545143This stack for the quilt (plus some aqua and extra white I needed) is from the Fabric Shack. They are open late on Thursday evenings, so DH and I motored down there, and also ate at the Stone House Tavern, on the deck, with live music.  Yes, I’m that devoted to quilting.

2015-10-04 15.47.56I have made good progress on the Turquoise and Gold quilt, but I still have to bind it.  The only finish this week is eighteen foundation pieced string blocks for Kat’s October block drive.  I was going to make twelve, but I still had strings left out from my pull, so I made six more.  Very difficult to go completely scrappy, but I did it.

This week:  + 17 yards,  – 3.75 yards
This year:  + 110.25 yards,  – 134.75 yards
Net fabric destashed  in 2015:  24.50 yards

No worries.  I’ll make my goal and then some.  Hope you’re making good progress toward your goal.
