Challenges have included "s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g" a backing fabric with piecing to make it large enough to use, and finishing UFOs so they are visually pleasing (or, at the very least, not butt ugly).
Choosing to ignore the lure of tempting emails has been as easy as hitting the delete key, and maybe because the nearest quilt shop is a two hour drive away, I've been able to hold out.
THAT is about to change. I'm The Library Project Quilt Along March winner!!!!
I've received a $25 gift card from this Quilt Along sponsor!!!
Can you say TEMPTATION???I'm going to pretend that winning fabric doesn't break the rules of the fast!
In fact, I think there is a loophole regarding gifts that might apply here...
(don't judge me. Ha!)
Thanks so much to Adrienne at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts for organizing and hosting TLP, and THANK YOU to Fabric Spot for their generous sponsorship!
January - March Stash-Busting Run Down
|First ever sampler blocks (my oldest UFO) finally pieced into a top, ready to quilt.|
|Used up leftover blocks and bits pieced by fellow Guild members to make this charity quilt. |
My stash provided the backing, batting and binding.
|Finished this flannel baby quilt.|
|"Modern baby" = stash, from start to finish!|
|Finished "Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin" UFO|
|"Scrappy Plus" = stash all the way!|
|"Irish Lass" = 100% stash|
(She's also a Library Project in progress)
|All from my stash, of course.|
Yes, it has challenges, and yes, I miss shopping, but stash-busting is one of my favourite things!
