Monday Meandering & Stash Busting Statistics 6 - 18 - 2018

I guess I've been really goofing off on my stash busting statistics recently.  I was surprised to see I hadn't added April's statistics to my spread sheet.  I was figuring the May statistics and oops!  I am two months behind.  So below are my numbers for both months.  Not too bad overall.

I've still used more fabric than I've purchased overall but I have been buying a bit more than I'm using.  Hum, could that be because I am working on Jamestown Landing, a big quilt that will be taking a lot more time before it is finished. I probably need to be careful on my purchases over the next few months.  And, get some projects finished! 

Here's a new top I finished this week.  I started it at retreat in May. The airplane fabric came from the estate fabric.  It had been used for a backing fabric and this was leftover after the quilt was trimmed. I took the pieces and picked out all of the stitches that had run into the edges.  Found fabric!  Perfect for a cute boy's charity quilt.  

 So over this week I've been working on the "Celebrate" blocks.(Here's where I showed the fabric pull.) And here's what it is going to look like: 

Guess what! I've got all the blocks finished. I worked really hard to get them done but now I'm waiting a bit until I put it together.  I've had quite a few customer quilts and projects to work on so I'll be focusing on finishing those over this upcoming week. 

So, what about those goals I set last week?  Well, most have been done or at least started! Oops! I forgot all about the secret project.  Must get going on that this week.

  1. What cheerful colors for the Beachside blocks! Great multi-colored background, too. And how great to be able to squeeze out one more quilt from the estate sale fabric.

  3. I seriously love the Celebrate blocks; the fabric and design work well together. Isn't it fun to use backing trimmings for other quilts - definitely "found" fabric.

  4. I would never have guessed that the blocks were put together this way. I thought you started with a snowball in the center. It will be fantastic when you are finished. Writing goals down...great idea. I should do that.

  6. I really like that cute airplane fabric piece! It looks a bit like an attic windows design where the view out the window is a very lively airshow :)
