A Finished Top and Stash Report

It's been a few weeks since I posted my stash numbers but now I have something finished, so it is time.

First off, at retreat I worked on this top and now it's a flimsy and ready for a backing.  I need a name for this one.  The fabric line is a mystery to me since it was given to me by a friend, so no help there as to a name.  It's not speaking to tell me what it wants to be called.  Any ideas??

Next up are the 8 pillowcases finished at retreat. Some fabrics were 1.5 yds so there are two of those.
All forms of aviation --hot air balloons to stealth bomber

More plans and biker flames

Pink leopard and tropical fish

Baseball and the 2nd plane one.
These finished projects are helping my numbers, but my stash is still not moving downward. I'm breaking even this year.  Lots of tops are done, but they are awaiting pieced backs.  We'll see if I can break this roller coaster of up and down but no changes in the space on the shelves. lol

Fabric Added  -        12 yards since last reported
Fabric Added YTD - 39.5 yds
Fabric Used -           11.05 yds
Fabric Used YTD -   39.27 yds

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.  


  1. I'm not good at names, but sinces it's a square in a square.....maybe "I'm Square"....or "Square Root".....giggle. Love your pillow cases as well.

  2. Your pillowcases are terrific. I made the rest of mine today. I also just finished an Economy Block quilt, . Take care.

  3. Your pillow cases are adorable! The square in a square in another square is one of my favorite blocks to make. Sorry I can't help with a name for your quilt, my imagination isn't very good.

  4. Look at you go Dar! Love the quilt.......hmmmmm......."Hip to Be Square"........."Don't Be A Square".........."Squared Up".........."Diamonds in the Rough".........."Diagonal Diamonds"?????

  5. Dar, your pillowcases are darling! :) Your quilt is pretty -- what a happy finish! Square Dancing . . . or Around the Squares . . . that's what I'm seeing!! :)

  6. A retreat is the best way to get a lot done, and you sure proved that! The quilt top is really pretty. Sorry I can't think of a good name. It's a square-in-a-square. Presuming all those pillowcases are for charity. Yes? They're great!

  7. Oh such wonderful pillowcases! And your quilt is so bright and happy! How about Happy Squares? Naming quilts is not my best quality LOL!!!!

  8. Fun pillow cases, those will be very popular. The quilt turned out beautifully. As for the name how about "Fair and Square", "Back to Square One", "Square Cut Diamonds", or "Squared Away"?
