stash busting

Stash Report (here we goooo…….)

New years resolution number 102 – use up some of this fabric!  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Who of us doesn’t say this….EVERY YEAR!! Hehehe….

Last year I joined in mid-year, and in my perfectionism was conflicted.  The conflict?  Well, I use my stash for more that quilting, and, on a good day….it even brings me a little $$. ๐Ÿ™‚   I think I’m past that though.  Quilters are some of the nicest people I know, and even if my purposes are a little different than yours…I’m praying you will just take me as I am.

This is some of my stash….

I’ve got the flatfolds…
And sometimes I get busy(did I say “sometimes” Lol!) and things get messy….and uhmmmmm stay that way…hence, have you EVER seen a full picture of my sewing room.  Nope, and you probably won’t. ๐Ÿ˜‰
And there are containers…that look like this after a mad search.  When I’ve been whispering under my breath, saying, “It’s in here, I know it’s here, where can it be….” Sound familiar?

And then  there are the bolts…yes, bolts.  Some of them are near full.  Oh, my.  Well…I got a “deal.”  How could I resist?

There’s more, but I’ll spare you.  Yes, I know you’re grateful. Lol…..

Design Wall Monday

Ok, here we are.  It’s Monday, and if you need  a good laugh, I’ve got one for ya. ๐Ÿ˜‰  So, I’ve been updating you on my Brown Bag Quilt, if you haven’t seen it it’s here.   Well, the thing needs a back, and since I am determined to use ALL the fabric sent in the swap, and I had already cut it up…. This is what I’ve got so far…

I actually saved it under “laugh”, cause I know that’s what you’re doing. Hehehe….. me, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And I’m working on a pieced bias binding, wondering if all the work is going to be worth it, since the three fabrics all read black….

AND…. praying I have enough of these three to finish out this back!

Hoping this thing is done soon!  I’ve got to get back to my Stashbuster quilt, and a Farmer’s Wife Sampler that I am on the edge of my seat to start! ๐Ÿ˜‰   (not to mention Christmas dresses to make, but that’s another post  ๐Ÿ˜‰  )

If you haven’t entered the giveaway, yet, you’ve still got time.  Just go here.  Giveaway time is 7 p.m., CST.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Design Wall Monday

Ok, so I haven’t been posting much about my quilting, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on it.  ๐Ÿ˜‰
My little business had eaten so much of my sewing time in the last two years, this summer I started MAKING time to quilt again.  That has included collecting all my UFO’s, and, yes, I do plan on getting them on their own page……eventually. Lol ๐Ÿ˜€

Since I’ve been working on my Brown Bag Quilt, and it used to be called the Ugly Quilt, I decided to show you another one.  Yes, bless my heart(read *you are an idiot* bahahaha), I have TWO.   Remember the good ole days, when you could watch Alex Anderson twice a day if you wanted?  Well, one show had a segment called What to do with Ugly Fabric.  Being the scrappy kinda girl I am, I thought, “That’s for me.”
So I set to work….four years ago.  How do I know, because a very dear friend was expecting her third baby, and I thought it would make a very cute quilt for a little boy.  This sweet child will be four in February. :-/ 

So here is what I have done….

Thirty 4.5 inch blocks, finished this quilt would be 20×24, without borders.  Wondering where to go from here.  Any ideas?  All suggestions welcome. ๐Ÿ™‚
Happy Monday! <3 ๐Ÿ˜‰
