    Starting to make a "Stash-Buster"

    A sneak peak of a quilt called Pulsar. This pattern appeared in the May/June 1994 edition of Quilt-maker magazine. I will be making 35 blocks total, with colors ranging from deep indigo to cream. Having fun finding small bits of leftover fabrics from projects going back about six years and combining them in this sparkling arrangement.

    Scrappy New Year my friends!

    Good luck! I think you'll be amazed when you're done that your stash will still look the same! I recently made a quilt only from my stash. I used 9 yards for the top and I didn't make a dent in my stash. I'm not one of those quilters who's got rooms and rooms of stash either. Just a 6' cabinet.
    Go forth and sew!

    Your blocks look great! Isn't it fun to find and use fabrics from past projects?

    I know! there really is no true Stash-buster, is there? I thought I would at least clear one fabric shelf from the cabinet, but no way is the surface of the shelf visible. This too, will use around 9 yards.

    Beautiful. Pictures like this are what inspire me to keep collecting fabrics. Some day, I will have a stash to bust.
