    Sorry for the loss Vanogay. Have a safe trip.

    Busted 4 yard for backing on a quilt, then found another piece that was two yards and a piece left from another backing of a quilt sewed together and finished up. Then another two yards for backing on tablerunners. Yep, had to buy some fabric for the backing on the faux drunkard path quilt, but it is now quilted and looks awesome. You counted that right, I have finished six quilts, oh there was five yards for another quilt that I did not even realize I had would work for it. Not bad I'd say. That was only four yards in and 15 yards out.

    Thank you everyone for the condolences. In a way, it was a blessing, but that'll be some time before you can 'really' think that way. He had been so sick. My sister seems to be holding up okay, but this next week will be hard. Plus today is her birthday and tomorrow is/would have been her wedding anniversary.

    Checked on the size of the largest block in the Asian Scrappy Road quilt and it is 8" (not 6" as I guessed).

    Attached is a picture of the Quilt of Valor I am working on - it is all stash - and the backing will be from my stash as well, so this one is 100% buster!!! I'm working on sashings and side panels on it - so only the big blocks are finished. I'll work on it again when we return from Atlanta.

    And yes, Krisb - the Asian Scrappy quilt is from the October 2011 issue of Quilters World. A fun quilt to do if anyone is interested.

    Vanogay, that is stunning; I'm typically not drawn to red white and blue quilts, but the "organic" sense of the "white" really gives warmth and movement to the entire quilt. Nice work, and all stash, too.

    I'm still hand-quilting away on a king-size quilt for my in-laws. I'll say this: my hand-quilting is improving. My stitches are a) getting more even, and b) getting more by-the-inch. I also broke my first needle! Next needle was smaller.

    good to see you jillaine. hope all is going well. handquitling, koodos to you.

    this week I have not had much production, almost get to say a yard out for the chicken blocks, once I finish up the applique on one set. When done with the table runner and the dq, will be able to say 1.5 yards out. I am anitcipating the excitement of telling wonderful you that I have busted some yardage.\

    I did bust some pounds, I am now 145, first time in four years I might add. Now to get to the 140 this month that was the size I was when we moved to Spokane. Wouldn't that be great! Would be stupendious if I hit my goal weight before I went home for Thanksgiving. Hmmm, wonder if 15 pounds off by November 22 would be doable?

    Quiltermomma-- I have a weight-loss goal, too. But it's been a REAL struggle. My ultimate goal is to shed 30 pounds (which would return me to wedding weight), but I'd be really happy if I could get 15-20 off! Ooops! Off topic?

    I finished quilting and binding 3 quilts last month. The newest top was completed in October, but the fabrics were from stash.

    The first one is Carolina Christmas, a Bonnie Hunter quilt which I did as a mystery several years ago. I do mysteries from stash, but I ran out of the bright white part way through. The back however is completely from stash as I was too cheap to buy backing.

    The second one is Fun with Bricks, another Bonnie Hunter pattern. This was my leader/ender project for a while. The border and backing fabric is one of the larger pieces I got from my mom's stash several years ago. I'm finding all sorts of backings from her stash.

    The final one I finished in July. Everything was from stash, including a great fall apple print from sometime in the 90's -- another piece of fabric that I brought home from my mom's.

    Right now I'm working on a scrappy irish chain using Bonnie Hunter's instructions and little 3" spools -- all from stash.

    Can you tell I tend to be scrappy and a fan of Bonnie Hunter?

    Over the past weekend I managed to get thru 5 yards of my fabric. I made a valance and eight tie backs - don't suppose that really counts as it isn't quilting - then made two table toppers to match the valance. Guess that gets a little closer to quilting. I am now working on a picture of flowers that was a kit. Do kits count as "stash busting"? Also made some wall hangings with my embroidery machine out of my stash. Guess I should take some pictures. Feels good to use up some of my stash!

    If it's in your stash, it's stash-busting.
