Stash Report and Flimsies Oct. 22, 2017

This week was a good one for finishing up two flimsies.  First up is a small 16-patch challenge for Kevin The Quilter's Scrap Club.  We could make a small or large 16 patch.  I chose the smaller one to be used as a baby quilt or perhaps an Honor Flight since the size is what they require.

RWB 16-patch 38" Square
The second top is my Sapphire Stars Mystery quilt also from Scrap Club.  Now this one is big and used way more stash and scraps, although one could not tell from the bins that any was taken out.  I even had 6 other ladies take what they needed for this quilt and you cannot see any decrease.  I swear it does multiply overnight when we are not looking.:)

Sapphire Stars - 75+" x 99"
I used the same colors as Kevin suggested because I have a large supply of red, white and blue scraps due to all the Quilts of Valor tops I make.  This might be a tad too big for hand quilting with our Eastern Missouri group, but I know I can find a deserving veteran who would love to have it after I  quilt it on my longarm.

I almost forgot to count some fabric used a retreat when I donated 9 fat quarters to our Left, Right, Center game that we played each evening,  This is still fabric out of stash, right?

Fabric Added this week - none
Fabric Added Year to date - 1.25 yds
Fabric Used this week - 14.25 yards
Fabric Used Year to date - 103.43

Linking up quilt,paint,create and on Monday with BOM's Away.


  1. I really like the mystery quilt. The scraps DO multiply when no one is looking. Great job passing the 100 yards used mark.

  2. Oooh, I couldn't pick a favorite between these two. I like both of them. Congrats on hitting the 100 yards out milestone. Surely there are some room in those bins now?

  3. Your Scrap Club quilt tops both turned out GREAT!! I'm several steps behind on Kevin's Sapphire Stars Mystery. Although, I did manage to do some of the finishing step while away at Quilt Camp this past week. A little progress is better than none at all!!!

  4. Your Sapphire Stars turned out great! I really need to find the time to stitch on my (3) versions (all red, white & blue, too). Love the stars at the top, too.

  5. Your scrap stash must be a sight to behold if you and 6 friends could make quilts from them and not notice any difference!!
    Great job on Kevin's mystery quilt! That was a lot of sewing and you did it in record time.

  6. Hey!! Look at your Sapphire Stars! It's fantastic! Hopefully I'll get mine caught up this weekend. Love those 16-patch stars, too. I'm rather jealous of your scrap collection if it provides so generously and yet remains robust - that's really cool. :)

  7. Your mystery quilt came out so well, it is beautiful!

  8. That was a lot of sewing and you did it in record time.


  9. Very Nice Collection.Thnx for sharing keep up the Good work..
