Sunday Stash Busting Report

Well, I am happy to report that I have had a pretty good week on the stash busting.  I finished my starry log cabin top, that I have been working on, on and off, for almost ten years. So not only do I have the blocks finished and out of my stash, I used 3.5 yards of this beautiful blue fabric, from my stash, for the border.  I will also be using about another yard for the binding. 


I also shopped my stash for backing fabric, using up another 10.5 yards from my stash! It wasn’t my first choice of backing, but I decided it would work fine. You will see the backing once I have it quilted and post final pics of this project. 

I also pulled out another UFO, a courthouse steps made from scraps from other projects, and made some forward progress on it.  This is froma Marti Michelle “quilt as you go” pattern, but it took me two blocks to decide quilt as you go isn’t for me.  I started it before I owned a longarm.  After getting the longarm, I decided it would be much more fun to sew them together the regular old way, and quilt it on my longarm.


Once I have this center done, I will use the same border fabric she used on hers.  And the fun part is, I already had a bolt of the border fabric in my stash, when I realized it was the one she used! How cool is that!?

I also posted some more stashbusting from the week in my Thursday post from this week. And if you want to see my out of control stash, it can be seen in the post prior to this one, so just scroll on down for it. 🙂

This pic was just too cute not to include.  Look what I keep finding under the Christmas tree.


Oh, I almost forgot! I finished my cousin’s quilt!  Bound, labeled, washed and dried.  I just have to get it shipped off to her and pray that nothing happens to it in transit. I can’t wait to hear what they think of it.

  1. Randi! That puppy under your tree is so cute. Think he knows what is supposed to be under the tree and he’s just waiting for his present?

    You had a great week! Finishing up old projects always makes me feel so good. It’s beautiful!!


  2. Your puppy under the tree is just too adorable! Wow, you really got a lot done this week. I must get on the stick and get my Christmas decorations out. :>


  3. Good job with the stashbusting! I scrolled down and took a peek at the stash and yep, it’s pretty sizable.

    I feel pretty much the way you do, I NEED my stash to pull from for my quilts but I don’t want it just sitting there. I’m not committed to not buying – just not buying indiscriminately just for the purpose of putting more fabric on my shelves!

    Thanks for the compliments on the Ice Cream quilt….I love the results I got with that one. I just wish I could keep it…but it’s a gift for my DIL so I can’t.
