    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.

    I made up about 25 small wallets (in the hoop project) and 30 scrub caps for the local hospital shop I consign to. So I'm guessing I used up about 6 yards of fabric from the stash. The only down side is the scrub caps requested are usually the same few fabrics so I will need to buy more fabric when she needs more caps.

    Great job Vickie, so nice you have that chance to consign. That is a lot of goodies.

    I have only busted 1/2 yard of scraps that I had in a UFO that I made a DQ with, will bust the other 1/2 yard when I get it quilted.

    Just found this tread and took a hard look at my quilts. These are the ones I finished using my "stash".

    All this out of your stash, you must buy fabric by the five yard rule.

    Neat stash busters!! And that pup would have problems at my house - he'd have to share the bed with a cat who also loves the quilts, but they are usually burrowed under them! All we see are 'lumps'.

    I posted a top... in process a few days ago... just laid out. I finished piecing it together last night and this morning. There were 245, 5 inch charms, of which only 65 were not of my stash. ONLY because after laying it out, I decided to make it bigger and bought a charm pack. Here is the top... It's a Disappearing 9 patch.

    I haven't been on a whole lot lately, but would like to show my two quilts made entirely from my stash. Both were made over this past spring and summer. I had a lot of personal issues going on, so what better way to keep busy! the first was a request from my sister-in-law for her DGD and the second is a couch quilt just for me.

    No, no pattern. I couldn't find anything that suited the project. It is dresden fans for the wings with half a fan at the bottom. The bodies I just drew. My sister-in-law loved it, so that is the main thing.

    I did some stash busting this weekend. I finished quilting seven of my quilts. I posted them on the UFO thread but if ya need me to here I can. I must have busted at least 10 yards or more of fabric. I have four more in the works to do, but I need to finish a gals quilts first. They are so pretty, applique to quilt. Yum. Some of my favorites.

    Yes, I did my own longarming on them. The one took about 20 hours to do, but worth the effort. the others were not that hard and did not do elaborate custom work on them.
