    Busted 5 yards of fat quarters and will get the last ones onto the border on a mystery quilt. So happy! Only had them in the cupboard for 7 years or so.

    I have been in a slump but I have a 4 day retreat locally next week, then on the 3rd I leave for another 4 day retreat that is about 110 miles away from home. Usually during that time we take a trip to the fabric store. But my plan is to not do that and use my stash. To accomplish that I have been taking all my 1/8' yard pieces, fq's and scraps of batiks and cutting out for the chain block that is on quilters cache. We just did some for a charity quilt at our group. Also taking along a bunch of UFO's and kits that I put together and have fallen behind on. So hopefully should have some projects to post after these two retreats. Along with a mystery that we are doing at the retreat next week, and some mini classes that I am teaching. Should have a good jump on stuff for xmas next year.

    Busted out some stash fabric scraps of my Buggy Barn fabrics. Got a bunch of civil war blocks all cut up and ready to go now.

    Well, truth be known, I fell off the wagon too. On my way back from Atlanta where I picked up my sister to bring her to TN for a visit, we stopped in Ringold, GA at Sew Bee It and I bought backings. THey were 30% off. Got one for me and one for Quilts of Valor which I donated on Saturday. I also bought some 'just because' fabrics at the quilt show on Thursday. Have been a bad girl there, but have been sewing and using my stash. Here's a picture of one where it was 100% stash. Entered it in the quilt show, no ribbon, but that's okay.

    The cat likes it. Bet it thinks the butterflies are going to jump off the quilt. It is very pretty.

    I finally got to Joann's yesterday to get the fusible Pellon for the totebags. At the register the girl rang everything up and took my 50% off cpn for the Pellon. She said, it says there is nothing to use the cpn on. I told her the Pellon was not on sale & I wanted to use it on that so she called someone. I looked at the little screen on my side and it read 50% off the Pellon. I told her it already did it. The other woman said no, Pellon is not fabric and you can't use that cpn. I said again, the register already did it. We were all confused but at least I got the 50% off. It was originally $8.29/yd. Then I went to Walmart. They had it for about $5/yd. So it was still cheaper with the cpn. Today I work on the bag.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    She said it was interfacing not fabric. I was just glad I got the 50% discount.

    Made two totes from stash. One with upholstery fabric outside and "why did I get that" fabric (think it is 100% polyester) inside. The other is heavy denim with superheroes lining for DGS iPad. Also have two quilts from swap blocks that have sashing from my stash and fleece (also from stash) backing/batting. Binding will be from stash as well.

    Once I get myself back up and running 100% I bet I will have some more stash busting done. But, I did a no no, saw some fabric at $4 per yard, and bought 8 yards. It will help get rid of some blocks that are in my stash so i can get a top done and will use it for the back as well since it is enough. Whew, not a total wrong, will help bust some stash.

    Sounds like a good deal to me - a total of $32 and stash busing to make a quilt!

    Finally a twin sized quilt made from stash . The fabric was also from a garage sale purchase! Even the batting was in my stash, since I buy it when I have good coupons

    WELCOME!! It is amazing what you
    can make from your stash!! I have also been cutting squares and strips from my scraps and organizing them in boxes for tons of scrappy quilts..if it's too thin for a strip, I put it in a box of strings for the string quilt I have started..I have also completed 2 dog beds from any pieces too small to use anywhere else!!

    Yep, I got more strings cut, more squares, more everything and I think the scraps grow everynite. I don't think I made a dent in my scraps either. I have 2 dog beds made and enough scraps for another.I am trying hard not to buy any fabric, so then my friend gives me "fabric".

    I recently finished the quilt in the attached picture from my stash. I did purchase the backing for it because I did not feel like piecing back. This quilt originally started out as placemats, but I thought the fabric was too nice for placemats. When I finished it DH said I should send it to my girlfriend as she likes purple. The quilt arrived yesterday. She loves it and quickly sent me a picture of her and the new quilt.
