    Here are a couple things I have finished lately using my stash. I will post more as I take pictures. I must say, it is fun making items without having to buy anything new. Love "shopping" my own stash.

    Attached is a photo of the quilt that I'm working on for our pastor who is very ill. I sandwiched it at church the other day and everyone who saw it really liked it. It's supposed to be gifts from God and he can imagine what is in each package. Sorry it's sideways, I don't know how to turn it around.

    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Stash busting marathon- Sewing Machine Cover

    I was going through the stash and decided to make a jazzed-up sewing machine cover. Although the machine came with a cover (with the brand name repeated all over it), it was just utilitarian. So I looked for a tutorial, finding this one: http://purlsandpleats.wordpress.com/...machine-cover/. As you can see I did make a pocket for one end of it and I also lined it with white muslin. Now onto the next stash busting project starting with a UFO...

    Just did my blocks for the batik swap entirely from stash. Now working on a throw for DGS that is also from stash. It is two pieces of the Disney "Cars" fabric that I originally was going to do curtains for his room or else pillowcases but he wants a blanket. I've been using fleece on the back of most of my throws lately. It makes them so cuddly and doesn't require batting either.

    I have some extra fabric that I had nothing I had planned to do with so I jumped on a quilting along thread and I really like it! I'm glad I'm finally doing something with that fabric!!

    I don't have major stash of fabric though I'm trying to fight the urge to buy lots of fabric

    createfourpaws,
    WELCOME! It's pretty unstructured. We'd love to see photos of your efforts -- and the stash you're trying to bust!

    Today I took one yard out of the house in the form of a winter themed cafe curtain for a fellow teacher's hallway window. Tomorrow I'm taking a half yard out, another little mitten themed curtain for the staff room window. Little by little, I'm finally getting some projects done. Yay!

    Getting sashing done on a set of swap blocks from a couple years ago. Both sashing and cornerstones are from my stash. So even though it is coming out a bit darker than I intended I'm glad to be making headway on finishing up the stack of UFOs.

    This is what stash busting looks like in its infancy

    I have been cleaning out stash making projects, cutting fabric for new projects and finishing up UFOs. Of course, in the middle of this, I decide to go through the quilting books, check on available fleece and get out muslin and pieces of cut up batting for FMQ (I will let you know about that another time). Thought it would give you a chuckle if you haven't had one today.

    Your "mess" is so neat! Maybe it's because it is just in infancy!

    Think I need you to come help me reorganize my stash.

    My lil helper has been through again and besides getting fabric out from the original stacks he managed to knock my cutting table off its cement blocks that raise it to more comfortable cutting height. Of course I had stacks of pieces I was cutting for a project which are now all over everywhere. Maybe I need to get off here and go try to figure out what's what in there. Lol!

    Bag #1 for Sadie's Dream For a Cure Bag

    Finished up this bag as I stash bust along... I asked them to just send 5 labels and the pattern as I would supply fabric. Amazing what you can find in the stash. Have cut four more bag kits for more sewing days once I conquer this stash!!!!!!

    Love your tote! I have several ready to sew once I'm in a tote mood again. Did about a dozen one week and then was ready to move on to something else. Been stash busting with sashing for swap block throws (three of them) this past couple weeks. Have almost earned starting a new project! Oh yeah have to do at least one UFO to completion first.

    AUQuilter: Warms my heart to see another's sewing room looking like you are very busy in it--since mine is in similar shape, and I'd much rather be sewing, quilting, creating, than cleaning up and organizing!!

    Oh goodness me, I fell off the wagon again. I had to buy fabric to finish up a cancer quilt. It turned out very lovely for sure, but had no choice, nothing in my stash is "pastel" (gag gag gag). I had to go shopping and only bought just enough to finish the quilt. I have one pastel pink 2" strip left, a bit of the border fabric that are just pieces. I did pretty good I think keeping it minimal. The white I bought, well always need that for my stash and I had to have some for a row robin because I ran out. So in essence, I did stay within some of the guidelines right?
