Stash Report

This is the Carla version of the stash report…

You might remember that we sent a quilt to Carla (of Longarm Quilting Inspirations) to be quilted.  Carla got the quilt done then got a hold of me telling me we should make arrangements to meet.  Well Carla suggested Wednesday but I don’t to Wednesday after work.  It’s my errand day.

So I suggested she come, as I said (now-ish).  The childcare kiddos were all sleeping and it would be perfect.  Carla is a sweetie and didn’t mind having to be the one to do the driving.  (it’s only 2 miles but well beyond her job description)

She said, “Hey, I’m cleaning out fabric, want some?”  Well you all know me.  OF COURSE I DO!!  So Carla brought fabric!!

Carla explained that she used to work at a fabric store and was their in-house long armer.  Every so often the boss would want to clean out space and would give fabric away to the employees.  She now spends most of her time longarming so doesn’t get a chance to use it.  She knows I do a lot with charity quilting so passing it on to me to find homes for it!

I was happy when I saw it.

Even happier when I got to really looking at it!!  See?This bag was full…

I pulled out two pieces that I will pass on to a mutual friend of mine and Carla’s.  She makes Veteran lap quilts with Christmas fabrics.

I’m not sure what to do with these.  They are that “felted wool”.  People use it place of regular wool for applique type projects.  Any suggestions?  There are several yards of each.

This bag was STUFFED!!

All have multiple yards of fabric.  I pulled this one to find it has 6 YARDS!!  Wow.  It is like getting a bag of quilt backings!!

I will be finding a home for lots of these.  I’m hoping I can send out a few at a time with quilt tops that match to some charity longarmers.  If you are a long armer and are willing to do a charity top, let me know…I now have backings AND tops!!!

As always contact me at

THANKS so much Carla.  I can’t wait to see all the good this wonderful donation does.

  1. JO- If I remember correctly, you got the cutter and supplies for rug hooking, didn’t you? Felted oil is used for rug hooking, so get out that cutter and start hooking! ☺️

    I was gifted with two large bags of material what a thrill to go through and find stuff I could use and gift. Tell your friend thanks. I enjoy surprises

  3. The felted wool could be used for pressing mats, in its current state it is not as thick as the wool/alpaca mats that are being sold but if you choose a size and cut several pieces to that size stack them and then you have a wool pressing mat. I think they are advertised as being 1/2 thick and I don’t have personal experience with them if I could afford one I’d definitely buy one
