stash report September 26, 2021

I don't remember where now, but, these were on sale. and I added them to my 'collection' of precuts. I have a weakness for 1 1/2 honeybuns. They have all the benefits of jelly rolls, but are harder to cut accurately at home. I am getting lazy with cutting the scraps. And if we downsize, these are easier to keep. However, I don't know if I will ever be able to actually unroll them. haha

I worked a little bit at rug hooking guild on my sheep chair pad. I was worried about how many background strips I have so I worked a little on each side.

orange crumb stars

 Most of my orange scraps are gone, but, I have strings and crumbs which I needed for crumb stars and the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy this month. I am using 4 1/2 inch squares of crumbs for the center and 2 1/2 inch HSTS for the star points. With the year almost over ( how did that happen), I will be figuring out what to do with the stars I have made this year.




It has gotten cold this fall. We need to clean out the garden. I was really sad to put long pants and socks on to wear.

carolina chain top

I have a top finished for Carolina chain. I have had piles of projects just needing a little help to get them ready for quilting. This one I used as my away project only. Eventually, it reached a stage I just wanted to finish it.


oops -silly block turned wrong _ I guess that is why I take pictures

 I cut Carolina chain in 2017. It is from the the book addicted to scraps by Bonnie Hunter. It was also in the quilltmaker  magazine, June/ July 2010.

shirt anvil blocks

I have been working on finishing some old ufos to the 'to be quilted' stage. I am ready to stop making borders for a little while. It was time for some soothing sewing and making a little progress on the shirt anvil blocks. I really like these. Using shirt fabric is one of my favorite ways to make quilts. The cotton just feels so nice.


And I found a few scraps hanging around the machine that wanted me to sew them.


forever easy breezy blocks

boho heart start

Oh, and by the way, I won the jelly roll race, Saturday, with my border attached to sea swept.

I mentioned earlier that my Friday group is working on Jen Kingwell's Boho Heart quilt together. Our first assignment was to do the 10 inch offset dresden and all the 2 inch 4 patches. They still need to be trimmed.

Sue is mostly reds and purples

Linda is wilds

I still needed to applique the center and trim the block.

me - rainbow colors

Our second assignment was the two gardenvale 10 inch blocks and all the 4 inch pinwheels.

Sue is keeping up.

I am the one the farthest behind, but, I have a few quilts I am trying to finish and I don't want to lose the momentum.

stash report September 19, 2021

Aren't these cute? They were on sale and I am always sad that charm packs don't make very big quilts, so, I bought 4.

Fabric Used this week: 1 yards    

Fabric Used year to Date: 150 yards

Fabric Added this week: 2 1/4 yards 
Fabric Added Year to Date: 110 1/2 yards

net fabric: 39 1/2 yards used more than bought 

 I stitched at least 15 minutes every day this week. I finished ode to joey quilt here. I have been very good about sticking to the longarm and getting quilts quilted for the quilt show in October.

Long happy story. About 10 years ago. My oldest son and his 4 small children moved in after the death of his wife. We had a massive stuffing of anything that we could to make room for him. I was rug hooking this rug, and it disappeared. Over the years, we made brave searches in dark recesses for this rug. I was broken hearted we couldn't find it. We decided it must have accidently been taken to goodwill. Recently, we have been making way for my daughter and her family to visit from Utah. I am embarrassed how cluttered our house has become. And, I have tried to declutter everything I can. I pulled everything out of the dining room closet, which was no small task, and at the very bottom of the bottom box was this rug. To say I did a happy dance, would be an understatement. Now I can finish it.

orange tiny houses

I have orange tiny houses for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I may have 2 rounds of oranges in the box already. But every year the scraps are different. And, it will take forever to make enough tiny houses  to make a quilt.



I found a box of leftover pieces from Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt frolic, and decided to put the HSTS together as pinwheels. I have them next to the sewing machine and I use them as leader/enders until they are gone. 


leader/enders

I am off to guild open sew today and a jelly roll race. I am excited as I will hopefully, make the borders for sea swept....with a jelly roll that I made.
