Sunday Stashing

As last year winded down, sewing my stash became a personal mission. I ended last fall with a - 25 yard net. Not too bad at all. 

Since then I have continued the trend. 

I will admit to hitting up a New Year's Day sale at our local quilt shop Quilter's Way, and a Connected Threads order recently for a net of +20 yards. After all, it was a sale :)  

The good news is, those purchases are nothing compared to the THREE quilts I started last month.  One is my family challenge quilt for 2016 so that is going to kept under top secret status (- 6 yards), the others are Penny Tiles (-13 yards) and Outlined Plus Quilt Along ( - 6 yards). 

Including projects I am trying to finish, my current net for the year is - 12.5 yards! More on those later. 

My Gram was kind enough to pick up this sweet little fat quarter pack for me! Aren't these super cute?

Notice the Lotta mixed with some cute florals and solids. They are so welcome to my stash :)

Thanks Gram! 


  1. That is a adorable bundle. I really like the navy dot print. Good job Gram!

  2. That bundle looks like ice cream! Your Gram has good taste.

  3. Ooooh, the pink and navy play so well together! That would make a dreamy baby quilt!

  4. Congratulations on the stash reduction progress! I am afraid with my move last year I have my largest stash ever to play with!! Gram can go shopping for fabric for me anytime! Beautiful!
