Stashbusting report

The stash is getting busted – several more projects have neared completion – but then there was this


Those were my fabric purchases at Quilt Expo – not to bad since they are only FQs.  But I do LOVE the new bendy LED light I got to attach to my sewing machine.  It’s great!

So stash used this week, 11 yards; YTD 198 yds

Purchased this week 4 yds; YTD 135 – net 63 yds used.

Here’s where some of that fabric went

1005060001  And there’s still several larger projects waiting to get their binding sewn down and as I look back at the photos posted in the last week or so – boy, lots of blocks/projects have finally found their way out of the UFO boxes and into the light.

In addition to the plum basket that was on the design wall last Monday (which is finished and pictured in a prior post) , the 4 holiday blocks that were up there to are now sew into a wallhanging and layered and that will be today’s quilting project.  Then I may have to actually start cleaning the sewing room.  It’s so messy it’s even driving me nuts and believe me – it can get pretty bad before I think I need to do something about it.


Here’s the photo of the design for the little pillow kit I bought. It was just so sweet in their sample and both my sister and a friend are Wizard of Oz fanatics – well it looks like Toto to me so they may both get one for Christmas.  I love the combination of embroidery and crayons. The line of patterns is called Parlour Pilloss  by Farmhouse Quilts and they had so many cute designs and some gorgeous hand dyed fabrics so it’s a miracle I walked away with only the kit.
