Thanks, Conchalea, for starting this thread again.

I finished a top today and will put it in my church quilter’s pile. It is 70” by 80” and uses a variety of sizes of blocks. I’m still working on using up the squares cut by my church group that have been in my stash for 6-8 years probably.

Here are my plans to reduce my stash for now:
1. 2 ongoing log cabin scrappy blocks
2. 10 partially or fully kitted projects
3. Wanda quilt top by GE Designs-pattern is in a book
4. Debby Brown’s quilt along-Make 16 patches from 2.5” squares and she will give a new free pattern every month for the year plus an idea of how to quilt it on your home machine, I am working on the January top and hope to do a few more during the year,
5, Pat Sloan’s Home is...
6. Last, but not least, finishing the 7 UFO projects.

I know I will be working more with the church blocks too and I would love to make a Jelly Roll Race quilt top.

Could you give some info on the Debby Brown QAL? sounds interesting.

It snowed here all day... so I sewed all day! I completed the last of my 25 RWB blocks. Plus I got them sewed into 5 rows. Most of that fabric was from stash. I plan to put the rows together tomorrow. I have backing fabric too, so I could finish the quilt by next weekend. Hooray!

I’m enjoying cutting and sewing my 2.5” squares into Color Blocks. I hope to have my January flimsy done this week.

I finished my RWB quilt top today! I spent most of 2020's first half sewing 2.5" squares into 4 patches. I lost my leaders-enders when I finished them. They were all from stash, & I have 30 16 patches, so quite a lot of stash is in those patches. I calculated they equal 1.25 yards. Then I used stash to make star points on many of them. Of course... I had to buy more fabric to complete said stars, plus the backing. I'll keep tally of all the fabric I use in the completion.

Congratulations on your finish, Conchalea. How much snow did you get?

We got 6.5" of very wet snow. The roads all cleared up today but there is a lot of snow in the yards & pastures. A snowy day made a great snowy day!

Working on mine this week too. Purple squares and I stumbled on a very light purple background. Hope I can squeeze out enough to make it work. Then off to layering, trying the spiral quilting and making more color way blocks. I have cut more 2.5 strips to add to my Birthday Swap 2.5's There are never enough. https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/wink.png

I just signed up for the Debby Brown SAL. It looks like fun and making us shop in our stash as I am doing right now. I cut 2.5" squares and just sew, sew, sew. I haven't been to a LQS for some time but headed out today to get some fabrics for a Valentine quilt-need light BG fabrics. I also ordered the "Stomping Grounds" pattern and plan to make the quilt with my bright fabrics (which I have a lot of).
Thank you for starting this post.
