Week 8 Stash Report - 2011

Fabric in this week:     5 yd.
Fabric in YTD:         13.5 yds.

Fabric out this week:   9.5 yds.
Fabric out YTD:         39.5 yds.

Stash busted:   26 yds.

If you would like to see how others are doing check out Judy's blog.

I finished piecing Ashcombe #2 then I quilted it up and got it bound. That is the 9.5 yds that went out. WooHoo. I purchased 4 yds of Kona cotton so I can make the last two Ashcombes. I really need to remember NOT to do 4 quilts of the same pattern. At least the next two are from a different fabric collection. I am looking forward to sewing with something new. It will be pink still, just a darker shade of pink.

Here are the twin quilts. Just to show that there really are two of them.

After finishing the quilt I decided it was time to focus on my basket quilt top. I put in some serious time doing machine applique then I ran into some trouble. Remember all the yards and yards of bias vines I made? Apparently I really underestimated how much was needed. When I pulled out the remnant of the light green there was only a small amount left. I went back to the shop where I had purchased it and it was all gone. They couldn't even remember what line it was from. I went to 5 shops on one day and then spent an hour or so looking on line but could not find it. Yesterday I decided that since this is not a show quilt I would just find something that was similar. After searching in 3 more shops I found something that I think will work so I bought 1 yard of that. Tomorrow I will sew up yards and yards of 1/8" bias then get back to appliqueing. One of these days I will be able to get this top finished.

That about sums up my week. I had fabric come in but I had more go out. Everything I bought was bought with a project in mind. I have a quilt for hire on the machine and I need to put time in on that. I am not sure how much sewing I will get done this week. Can you believe this is the last week of February? I can't.

Hope you have a great week QFF*!

Remember, we do this for fun..


  1. Your Ashcombe quilts are wonderful...I am wanting the pattern even more now that I see yours finished.

  2. Love the pink quilts. I don't think I could do quilts from the exact same pattern back to back (I'm not sure I could make two quilts the same ever to be honest).

  3. lovely quilts. the pinks and greens look great together. liz

  4. Your basket quilt is gorgeous! I love pinks and greens together too.

  5. Love the quilts! They look great.
    I can't wait to see the applique quilt all done. It is beautiful already.

  6. Adorable twin quilts! Great stash report

  7. I read about all your circles to be made. I need a good way to store up MY circles. I read where someone kept all their prepped pieces for a block in a empty egg carton. Bias vines take up lots of fabric, I'm always surprised when I need some. And narrow bits--no one will know or care it's not the *same* green!
