Stash - Wk #8 and More

My numbers didn't change at all, but I had a productive week. I worked on several projects --an applique quilt called Snow Friends (you'll see some of it tomorrow), made more blocks for my string jewel quilt and did some re-knitting after ripping out a mistake on my first sock.

Fabric Added this week - 0

Net used in 2014 - 4.28 yds

Even though my stash was not being used much, I was helping others reduce their stashes. That's a good thing too, right?

Here is Mary's Pastel Rail Fence quilt set on point that I quilted last week.  She used a lot of pastel scraps from her stash for this one. Isn't it pretty.  It reminds me of ice cream sherbet.

Another finish was a Debby Caffrey mystery quilt called Bobbin Along. This one turned out so lovely. This lady always has beautiful pieced tops, freshly ironed and delivered on hangers and it is a joy to quilt them. Her fabrics and colors in this quilt were so pretty.  

The quilting doesn't show up very well on the front (that was the plan). I used a panto by Anne Bright called "Blooming Things" that has an Asian feel to it which we wanted to bring out the design in her backing and blue border fabric.

To check out what others have accomplished this week with their stashes, go to Judy's Patchwork Times.


  1. Once your current quilts are completed your numbers will soar. Great job on the quilting.

  2. I may borrow the rail fence quilt idea for a family reunion quilt.

  3. Love that pantograph. Looks hard.

  4. Very pretty quilts. The quilting on the second one is gorgeous.

  5. Nice quilting. I am the same as you - not using much but still getting quite a bit done - which feels just as good!


Thanks for taking time to stop by and visit. It makes my day to get mail - either online or in the old fashion mailbox! Some habits you never outgrow.
