Sunday Stash – But I Neeeeeeeded It!

Oh hey, I bought more fabric. <insert semi annoying animated gif of people putting on sunglasses with “DEAL WITH IT” captions>

I think this is my last huzzah – I was gifted a gift certificated for Tiny Stitches so I went ahead and got a piece of wideback for backing for the king sized Christmas quilt and a jelly roll that was on sale.  Wheeeeee.

This week my only finishes are miscellaneous storage and scrap holder bags – nothing too exciting there, but I did finish Step 2 for the Allietare Mystery Quilt over at Bonnie’s blog (see more progress on her linkup!).

This is the first week with some color in it – I’m using turquoise in place of the red (and orange in place of the gold).  I got the other extra squares cut as well, but they are not as exciting to photograph.

Next week I should be able to report  a finished Quilt of Valor and possibly a decent start on piecing the Christmas quilt I’ve been planning.

  • Used this Week: 1 yards
    • 1 yd for various storage bags
  • Used year to Date: 272 yards
  • Added this Week: 11.5 yards
    • 8.5 yd for backing
    • 3 yd for jelly roll
  • Net Used for 2015: 117.25 yards
  • YTD Used for Charity: 137.25 yards (50% of total used)

  1. I like the use of the turquoise in the mystery quilt. I am looking forward to seeing your Christmas quilt. What was the jelly roll? I have gathered my Christmas themed UFOs and will hit the sewing room tomorrow. Goal this week is to finish them all or at least most of them :-).

  2. You mentioned the sizes you cut your scraps into on to sew in, I didn’t write them down, could you give them again, please. I know you don’t do 1 1/2″ ;-). Thanks for all you do. I enjoy the stitch too.

      1. Thanks, have been trying to get my scraps under control. Its difficult since I havent done scrap quilts yet.

  3. Sometimes you just don’t have the perfect fabric for a special quilt in your stash and a shopping trip is needed.

  4. I love the blue you’re using in place of the red. I’ve mixed up the colors in past mysteries, but this year I am being boring and sticking with Bonnie’s colors. Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt!

  5. I am happy to see that I am not the only one that picked bright and cheerful blues instead of the “deep red” for the mystery!! 🙂 on another note, I love both the podcast and the stitch show! You make my commute much more fun, so thanks!!
