    Busted a lot of stash!! Went thru about half of my stash, and filled 2 tall kitchen bags with fabric I can't use for quilts to give away. I have a friend that makes American Girl clothes that I am sending it to. Will probably have close to another bag to fill from the rest of my stash. Also pulled out fabric combos I like to investigate patterns to use them on

    Finally finished this one this weekend, a graduation gift for my niece - a rather modern girl. All from my stash - including the back which is a Jinny Beyer fabric that I just "had to have" Wish the colors showed up better (old camera) as they are shades of blue from deep royal to light blue with lime green (not yellow).

    What nice projects to look at! Paula, I love your dragonfly label-that was a clever idea. The colors are great too.

    Pat I really like those rabbits. I had that pattern about 28 years ago and made the whole family of rabbits. The bottom quilt pattern is very cute for a scrappy quilt. I can also see using it for an eye spy quilt instead of sewing all the squares just together. I hope I will remember when it is time for a stash bust.

    Paula, I really like your quilt. Every time a check in here to see what's new, I like it more. Perfect for a teen.

    TY all for the kind comments. It is enroute to her now so we will see what the "teen" verdict is.

    Teen verdict is in - she likes it. Sweet child also paid me the nicest compliment when she said "It is the most thoughtful gift she has ever received."

    Just completed the second top this month all from stash!
    This one is a fairly small throw, even with borders added. Had all these little triangles left from doing flying geese so started sewing them together. Then had to add a coordinating triangle to make the square. Next thing I knew I had navy and purple spinning star blocks. Not big enough for anything yet. . . Only a dozen ~5-1/2" blocks. Hmmm - let's see what will go nicely with that as alternating blocks. Tried several different fabrics before this one yelled "me, me, pick me". Still not going to be very big. Oh, how about sashing. Since the blocks were small I just cut it 1-1/2" wide. For the cornerstones I wanted a bit of contrast but still keeping the 1/4 sq triangles the bright spot so that was an easy choice to use a fabric close to the color of the purple stars. Then figured a narrow border of the fabric from the 1/4sq triangles would help accent as well. Next was a bit wider border of the purple from the stars, then the fabric from the alternating squares and finally the navy from the stars. Thinking about using the fabric from the sashing as binding.

    Hope I can find the app again that I had to resize pictures. My phone ended up taking a nose dive into a portapotty so I'm having to redownload all my apps to this new phone. What a nuisance!

    This is the other top I did this month. I haven't decided if I want a border or borders on it or just binding.

    Both of these are done completely with batiks from my stash.

    I agree, a dark bottom would finish it off perfectly. They're both beautiful!

    I just quilted this one... just left to do the binding...
    I kind of married the Mosaic and Magic Tiles patterns.
    The fat quarters are all from my stash - bought in 2008 according to the reciept that was in the bag with them.... I just mixed them all in, and there they were. The bias tape, and sashing, is also from my stash - the binding will be the same fabric. It's actually from a double wedding ring I made for my husbands brother, and his wife. (it was the background).
    The backing is also from my statsh - it was given to me, by an aquantice, who got it from a relative.... I had no real use, but really love it as a backing. Shockingly enough!

    Was made purely to appease the husband with my fabric shopping....

    My mom recently saw the table topper in the Connecting Threads catalog made from 2" squares. That one is only 18". She wants one to fit her table and hang down a little. This one is 45", all from scrap and I even found a suitable backing in my stash. I still have to quilt it but not sure how I want to do that. She will get it for her birthday, Sept 1.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Nice job inspectorcmm. I've always liked that BH pattern thanks for sharing.

    Here's a little stash buster I started this week--now to get it quilted. I guess I managed to get rid of 2 FQ's of fabric with this mini! FYI 272 pieces of fabric in the center LC blocks--smallest piece 1/4" square (finished)Name:  007.JPG

    Hello Everyone. Having failed miserably to do the UFO challenge (made it as far as May then lost it), I am looking for a new home. Maybe getting rid of stash is a good one. I make lots of Linus quilts here in the UK but also get given fabric for same. Therefore, I have an ever increasing stash. No promises but will take a serious look soon. Jacki
