Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash:  12/3/17

1 Comment


I spent a few hours this week making up this baby quilt from fabrics I had on hand.  I hadn’t expected to use the turquoise and orange Grunge in this, but there it is.  This was cheerful and fun to work on.  It’s quilted with a serpentine stitch where the frames meet the center patches, using Superior’s Twist thread in turquoise, and Bottom Line below.  (It’s also quilted between all the blocks with Bottom Line.)  I would place the stitching differently next time to make the stitches more visible, but, again, there it is.  It does drape better than some of the ones that have more quilting.  You’ll find this in my Etsy shop.

The numbers are a wash, though, because there was some fabric acquisition over Thanksgiving.

 This week:  +  3.25 yards,  – 3.5 yards

This year:  + 106.75 yards,  – 150.0 yards

Net destashed added in 2017:  43.25 yards

Good luck on your destashing!
