    Well, if it qualifies here, I have a star log cabin top done, had to go and buy the zinger and border because I did not have enough fabric to finish it and nothing I had worked. It is going in show so needed it right. Then to finish up the stash of 30s fabric I accumulated, I have two baby quilts out of the blocks and fabrics I have on hand. Will use up a solid in my stash that will work for their zingers and to complete the stash busting, on one will make nine patches with scraps and pieces, then the other will be using the red solid I have in stash and then use the red/black/white 30s prints for the border. I may have to piece them or one side be red and the other the black type fabric, but will get it used. There, whew, I qualify on that one.

    ok, since I really need to cut down my stash -- overflowing beyond overflowing -- so count me in. I work on projects other than just quilts so if these will count for destashing, I will post pics of these as they get done.

    Right now, I'm making a batch of zippered card holders that's an "in-the-hoop" project.

    Ok, no photo quite yet, but i did destash some 30s fabrics that I did not use for the other quilts I made. I used up 5 yards of fabric for the Boomerang swap. Yep, I destashed five yards. So there. I had to mail out a lot of f8ths, but I do not have all that fabric anymore. How is that? I will show you the end results when they come back to me all made up in blocks. LOL I know, sneaky, but doable. Now I get to play with others fabrics.

    I'm in. I have been trying to destash a bit also. Looking forward to all the pictures. It is always an inspiration to see so many beautiful quilts.

    I am using a solid cream on back so the quilting will look like a wholecloth on the back. Yep, need precision on this one. The thread will be a cream/yellow color, buttercream on both top and back as well so will show up. Hopefully get done so will be entering in the fair next week.

    I think that log cabin is very pretty. I'm dyslexic, and that particular pattern really stumps me every time I try it. I don't do many log cabin patterns.

    I am so tired of the log cabin, may be some time before I even think of doing another one once these are done. did the Wonky Log Cabins which were fun because it did not matter about the strips which worked real easy,
