Dec 9th - Stash Report

I added 4.5 yards of this adorable fabric to my collection - I had a gift certificate and wanted to use it before it got lost in the move.

It is the perfect background for a QOV I plan on making early next year.

I will be using this pattern and using blues instead of the greens

Here is the link to the quilt-a-long

Here is my first block -  I think it is going to make a great quilt. This block is 24 inches.

Since last report ~ ~
Fabric In - 4.5 yards
Fabric Out - Zero - I won't be finishing any more quilts this year

November 30, 2014 Stash Report

Linking up with Judy's stash report...

I finally finished my City Sampler quilt - 100 modern quilt blocks by Tula Pink.

 It is 98 inches square  before washing. 100 6 inch blocks. I have never made anything like this before.

This is the fabric I used for the sashing - the colors are closer to the above picture.

Modern quilts/blocks aren't my favorite. I prefer more traditional patterns. Though I have to admit that I did enjoy making this one.  I think I might have one or two UFOs that are on the modern/improv side that I hope to finish next year.  Bill said that this is his favorite quilt to date. He insisted that we sleep under it the first night it was finished, even before washing it. 

Not sure what I am going to make with the 21 extra blocks. I thought I would need them to make the quilt  bed size - I just made the sashing a bit wider instead. No two blocks are the same.

I have decided that any fabric that comes in between the last report of 2014 and the first report of 2015 will not be added to my numbers. It will be a great time to "re-stash" my fabric!

Since last report ~ ~
Fabric In - ZERO
Fabric Out - 21.75

Stash Repport November 23, 2014

Baby quilts 51 and 52 are finished!!! I am so glad this journey is over.

You can read about #51 here

Baby quilt #52 came about because the two charm packs I was given last week came with a pattern. If a quilt was made from the pattern, and the finished quilt or a picture of the quilt is brought back to the shop you would get a $10 gift card and be entered to win a $200 gift card. I sent a picture to the friend who gifted me the charm packs. Maybe she will win.

My hexie flowers for the week.  

If I continue making 7 each week I will be finished with them the first week in May.

I finally have the opportunity to drive into Nashville this afternoon to deliver my stack of 36 quilts for RMH.
So glad they are going today as someone keeps telling me they are going to be used for packing blankets! I don't think so.

Fabric In ~ ZERO
Fabric Out ~ 5.24

51st Baby Quilt

I used the pattern Moondance by Villa Rose Designs

Isn't this swirly fabric great?
Didn't have enough of it so I had to make the quilt a bit smaller.

Only one more baby quilt to go! I am glad this journey is almost over.

Baby Quilts 48, 49 and 50!!!

I think I will meet my goal of 52 baby quilts this year as I only have 2 more to create. I will not be doing this challenge again. I want to focus on some quilts that have been patiently waiting to be finished.

This quilt is from the  "Star Bright" pattern which is free on Craftsy

This next quilt came about when I was looking through one of Kim Diehl's books, saw a block and wondered what it would look like if I made it into one giant block for a baby quilt.  I thought it came out pretty good.

The background fabric is tiny red, blue, yellow and green dots.

For this last quilt I used Oh Fransson's pattern -- Charm Squares
