Stash Report Sunday, January 25, 2015

Fabric In: 1 yard
Fabric In January: 3 yards 
Fabric In YTD: yards
Fabric Out: yards 
Fabric Out January: 5.yards
Fabric Out 2014: 5.yards
Stash Reduction: 1.5 yards
can't report all the fabric I have used because nothing was finished.  DD#1 got an automatic Go! and a 10" die. Tuesday, I had loads of fun cutting 15 yards of fabric into squares. Lots of layer cake possibilities! In no time flat and with no hurting arm.
      I see lots of trips to DD#1's house with lots of unloved fabrics being cut into kits for log cabins, 2 1/2" strips, tumbler (both sizes), and drunkards path (both sizes again)! Lots of kits being made!
From January 4th post:
2015 is going to be a year of finishes for me. Each month I will pick a UFO to finish and a kitted project to bring to top stage. This month the UFO is Charlotte Angotti #1 Gone Wrong which needs a binding if DH lets it off the bed. The Kitted Project is BHMQGI where I have 4 blocks made.   
Update January 25, 2015:
     DH, finally, agreed Friday to let me take CA#1GW off the bed to put the binding on. So off to the LQS I went to find a binding fabric. The piece I had from stash went AWOL. I will sew it on and work on it this week.
      The BHMQGI is progressing well. I have finished the middle and added the first yellow border. I am now working on the pieced borders. Hopefully, it will be ready to go to the quilter by February 10th with backing.

February Goals
     I am already thinking about February's Goals. I think my UFO will be Tom Kat. He needs the binding hand sewn down and his eyes, nose, whiskers, mouse, and ball put on.  I will also work on the hand sewing of binding of CA#1GW.
     My kitted project will be the yellow and orange disappearing hourglass blocks. I have enough ten inch squares to make both versions. I think I will also work making Soccer Beauty a flimsy.
  Lator Gators.


  1. Sounds like you have a lot of fun quilts to work on! Enjoy your quilting time.

  2. Your Grand Illusions is lovely! Happy quilting! ~Melanie

  3. Your Grand Illusion has turned out lovely. It sounds like you have great plans for finishing projects this year...something I should work on!

  4. Your Grand Illusion is looking grand. Good luck with all your stitching goals.

  5. I wonder what possessed me to start grand illusions? I wanted to belong. Yours is marvelous

  6. Your stash report looks good this week, and so does your grand illusion. How cool to have an AccuQuilt in the family!

  7. Your GI looks great. I resisted and didn't make it. I like your idea of kitting up all those unwanted fabrics with your GO cutter. That should use it up quickly.
