Stash Report

WOW…I have been blessed with fabric lately….lots of it.

When I last met Ila she gifted me some triangle scraps from a project she was working on…I love these little snippets.  She gave me some old quilt magazines too.  I’ve had the best time paging through them.

Then Nancy in PA blessed me with more fabric.  She has been organizing her fabric and folding it using Bonnie Hunter’s method that you can see here.  As she’s been organizing she’s tossed some fabrics she no longer wants into a box and has been sending them my way.  It’s been wonderful for me!!  THANKS SO MUCH NANCY!!

See all the cream and light colored fabrics??  Can you believe I have used them up already??  The entire stack is sewn and in a quilt.  You’ll have to stop back tomorrow and I’ll show you what I’ve been working on.  It’s cute and very scrappy…not done but getting closer.

I finished up two wedding present quilts last week.  You can see them here if you missed them.

Used this Week:  18 yards

Used year to Date:  76 yards store bought +  64.5 Moda and gifted fabric + 19 yards of recycled/thrifted fabric…

    Hello, I read your blog so know you are very busy and hate to bother you, but the Scrappy Stars Baby Quilt seems to have the sizes listed wrong for some of the triangles. I cut some the way you said – a 4 1/4″ square then cut twice on diagonal – it’s way too small to put the triangles for the points on- the one pieced with scraps – that’s why I liked this pattern, I do the Bonnie Hunter things all the time and love to make crumb blocks, so looked like just the pattern for me. Now, am I misunderstanding your directions? SO, I decided to use the Fons & Porter flying geese ruler. It tells me to use a 3 1/2″ strip, and use the 3 X 6 lines on the ruler to cut the big triangles, and then the way they say to cut the small triangles exactly fits the way you said to piece them and cut them in half diagonally. When I sew the smaller pieced triangles to the larger background one, the resulting Flying goose fits the large pieced square perfectly to make the stars. So, I have it figured out for me,but I thought if you wanted to check it again, maybe would prevent some beginner from having a problem with it. Four strips cut 3 1/2″ was enough for the 36 triangles, and all the others were correct. I know you got your quilt made, so the mistake could have been in the printing it out. I’ve been making quilts for many years, and sew almost every day just because I like it! Thanks for your time. Carol
