Stash Report Week 20

Wheww!!  Spring is gone and it's like summer here today.  It may get below 80 degrees after midnight.

No big finishes this week.  I've lost my mojo for finishing.  I have two quilts to bind and picked up another one yesterday.  Maybe it was the weather.

Easy Street parts
Yesterday was our sew day and I worked the entire day on chain piecing for Easy Street.  I haven't worked on this in months, since I've been so focussed on finishing UFOs.  It was so nice to sit and stitch. "Just keep stitch-ing, just keep stitch-ing."

This evening I have been finishing up about 40 more components and then I will be ready to start putting bocks together.  Well, after I press them all.

Flowers for Kashmir kit

Quilty friend Elise "cleaned out a closet" and brought some kits to destash.  Of course, after seeing them all day, one of them had to come home with me! About 9 more yards!!

I chose something that I haven't tried before - a one block quilt.  Cutting the same shape from strips of fabric shouldn't be much different than cutting all those little pieces in Easy Street from 2" strips.

May swap
A few days ago my May Flickr fabric swap package arrived.  Since I went shopping for goodies to send my partner, they always want modern, then I guess I have to count these FQs in the stash report, too.

Arent' they pretty?  Love the teensy zippers - perfect for little coin purses.

To the numbers:

Used this week: 0
Used YTD: 60.5
Added this week: 9
Gifted this week: 1
Added YTD: 58.75
Net used YTD: 1.75

  1. I can't believe I'm farther along on Easy Street than you.! This is a first. My blocks have been done for ages and still up on my deisgn wall. You will probably get yours finished before me.

    I think the hot weather did a number on you. Another quilt with tiny pieces? It does look very pretty though, but I'm not sure I could handle it right after ES. Good luck to you.

  2. Oh your new quilt looks like so much fun to make - I'm so jealous! LOL I think I need to go find some little zippers like those and make some fun things.

  3. I just finally finished Easy Street and love it. Now if I could only force myself to finish Roll, roll cotton boll! Looks like a neat new kit to work with!


Please leave a message. I love to hear from you.
