    Jillaine, your quilt is pretty. I had joined the UFO group, but didn't keep up - I think I finished two projects since the start. Of course, I can always jump back in, but haven't.

    The Asian Scrappy is from the Quilter's World Magazine, October 2011 for anyone who is interested. It is on the front cover of that issue. I followed their pattern exactly, no changes (like I usually do)

    I'm in too...part of my 2012 resolution...so more incentive! Posting this pic a couple of weeks ago...but all scraps, overages - and the shell fabric had been a remnant in my stash for about 8 years. Just needs backed and quilted - will be a beach quilt for my DSIL's folks who just moved to Florida.Name:  beach quilt.jpg

    PenniF, pretty quilt. I'm not really a blue person, but this is a nice combination of colors. In laws should love it.

    Can I use my husband's shirts? Does that count as stash.

    As I wrote the description of the quilt I just posted in the Pictures Forum I realized that it qualified as a 100% stash-made quilt (except the batting). Rather than rewrite the description I will now attempt a cross-post...http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t197427.html

    I hope to produce additional stash-buster quilts in the near future...

    I finished this 'Blue and Green Bricks' about a month ago. I did it specifically to use up some of my stash (I'm running out of storage space!). The back is completely out of my stash, too:

    I still had so much left in my stash that I made a blue Turning Twenty:

    The back of this is also pieced from my stash (but no pic).
    Both of the bindings were from stash, also.

    I save the tiniest of scraps - I can't stand to throw it out when it costs so much! But those scrap quilts will take so long to finish I won't be able to post here.

    Nice job Cindy A. Love them. Blue is my favorite color.

    So, Jillaine, you sure you want me to have fun here? My stash is dwindling a bit since I have been using them for finishing up quilts, but I do have stash/leftovers/scraps that are consuming my area. I will photo my "stash" bins and see if I should play with you. As you know I am working on those UFOs. I have a large stash/leftover of 30s fabrics that I am working thru right now to finish up another star log cabin and then I have 18 more blocks left that I need to use up the stash with and make something. May be another applique one or I may embroider on it, haven't decided, will be next month's decision. You let me know if you want me to play along or not, you know how OCD I am.

    I think I know one of the projects I am going to do for this stash busting challenge, a wonky star nine patch. i have not done one of these and it will help rid myself of some of my squares, fat quarters and yardage that is there.

    I'm in the midst of hand-quilting a king size quilt for my in laws so haven't made much progress on my stash busting this month. How's everyone else doing ?

    I'd love to try this, but with getting the children back to school in a few weeks, it may take me a while to produce something. Once done, I'll just send a quick word as I still have no clue how to post pics on this newer site. Not sure if it's my computer that wont cooperate or the user's lack of knowledge/experience.
    Go forth and sew!

    jillaine, I would like to follow along and play also. I too have one of those "stash" closets that is overflowing.

    And QuilterMomma, nice to see you here! Yes, you may be OCD, but you help to keep us productive on the UFO Challenge thread. My hat goes off to you! Looking forward to "working" with you here.

    Finishing the binding on my quilt posted earlier in this thread. I was checking and might have enough of those particular fabrics and I can add to them from my stash to actually make another one. I'll have to change the light border and I'll check through my stash, might have to change the black as well - or just buy enough for that. It was really an easy quilt to do and I wouldn't mind making another. Don't want to buy, if I don't have to.

    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,
