Stash Report January 15, 2012



I was surprised when I pulled out a tote to finish a top that the top was already finished, just needed to be quilted and bound. Easy first finish for the year. Triple Irish Chain. The green matches my wallpaper in our bedroom perfectly. I love textured wallpaper and would have it in every room if I could.



This quilt was made from a pattern at  www.maryquilts.com/new-forest-bricks/  called Forest Bricks. The bricks were already cut out, made the top go together really quick.



This quilt is called Starry Eyed. First saw it at www.cupcakesndaisies.blogspot.com and decided it would be a perfect quilt to make it all out of all scrappy 2.5 inch sqs. Pattern can be found here www.modabakeshop.com/2011/07/starry-eyed-quilt.html I am thrilled with the results. I will probably make more of these quilts as I still have a gazillion 2.5 inch sqs. Started and finished this week. Another great simple pattern. Bill thinks it more of a girl's quilt because of the white fabric. The next one I will use something other than white and it will make a great guy quilt. I might even try one in reds and blues.

Jeanne wrote on Dec. 30th about being comfortable with her identity as a utility quilter. I feel the exact same way. I want my quilts to be loved and used.

I do plan on adding some fabric next week. I love to use white with tiny black dots as sashing and I am out of it. Also want to find some background fabric for some QOVs.


In YTD - Zip
Out YTD - 46.90 ( I only count fabric when the quilt is 100% finished)

So far so good!

I love your Starry Eyed quilt. I think I might have to make one or two of them.

Wow, you must feel great with all those finishes. I'm a fan of the starry eyed, as well. And I really like those bricks, too.

Pretty, pretty, pretty!!! Thank you for the links to the patterns, just might have to bookmark them. I also wait and count my fabric when the project is all done. It's a little extra incentive to push me on til the end.

Your quilts are gorgeous! I've made the starry-eyed quilt too, out of the Noteworthy line. Wanted it for me but it ended up with my niece. I love your version with a bunch of scraps though!

Lovely quilts. I've made an Irish Chain and a brick quilt, both are fun patterns. The Starry-Eyed quilt is going on my bucket list.
