Stash Report Week #37 - 41...

September 10 - October 14, 2011

I am so behind on my stash reports.  To catch up, to this one covers the last 5 weeks.  Hopefully I can keep all the numbers straight!.

First off, I purchased some Hometown fabric to make a table runner for my sunroom.  I believe there's a total of 3.25 yards here - including the backing fabric.  I'm going to use a slightly modified version of the Pathways and Crossroads Quilt Pattern to make it.

I also bought 7 yards of Just Wing It by MoMo to use for borders, backing and binding.  This should be enough fabric, along with a Layer Cake I received for my birthday, to make a nice sized quilt.  And best of all, the yardage was on clearance for half off!

Since I saw the quilt 45 and Life to Go earlier this year, I've been imagining it on our bed.  I purchased the pattern and kit from Primitive Gatherings.  The kit includes 16.5 yards for the 110" square version.  That's a lot of fabric, but the quilt is going together beautifully so far.  (I'll share my progress in a future post.)

The rest of my purchases were from the 2011 Stash Dash.  I bought a FQ Bundle of Little Gatherings and a Charm Pack of Primitive Muslin - both made by Primitive Gatherings.  There's 10.75 yards between the 2 of them.

I also bought a Layer Cake and Jelly Roll of Panier de Fleurs by French General.  This shop was having an amazing sale on pre-cuts that day (in case you couldn't tell).  That's another 5.5 yards.

And finally, I bought 2 yards of assorted Christmas prints.  I believe three of them are from Jovial and I'm not certain about the last.

Doesn't it sound like all I've been doing is shopping the last 5 weeks?  Would you be surprised to learn that all of it entered my stash in less than a week?  I actually haven't purchased even a scrap of fabric in more than 4 weeks now.  With all that's come in, I couldn't possibly need any more!

In the last 5 weeks, I've also managed to complete 3 quilts and 2 quilt tops.  I've already done posts on the finished quilts, so I'll just add a picture and link for those...

Orange Sherbert - I used 4 yards for the Backing/Binding
Harmony - I used 5 yards for the Backing/Binding
Splash - I used 4.5 yards for the Backing/Binding
I'm in the process of quilting this Dresden Plate Table Runner.  It's slow going though because I'm using my walking foot and there's a lot of twisting and turning of the quilt.

Festivities - I used 2.75 yards for the top
I finished piecing this last quilt at the retreat I just attended.  I'm hoping for a quick turn around on this one...

For no particular reason (other than I think she's adorable), here's a picture of Jack on the her binkie...

Until later...

  1. YOu have been busy! That is a lot of fabric, but I am sure you will get to it all! It has been slow going on my quilt blog because we are having foundation work done and we had a lot of prep work in the garage and house! I did get my Granddaugters quilt posted. I will start posting more that I completed last year, soon.
