My-Stash Report 3/5/17

Hi friends, Well it’s Sunday…and I am hear to report about my stash. I have really been feeling overwhelmed with my UFO’s …..it’s a problem as many of us quilter’s know. So I am trying to finish up some of my easy projects. Why is that sometimes we have UFO’s even if it’s just a matter of adding one border? Or a simple quilting job? I have no idea but I have plenty of them. I have totes and bins of UFo’s and I think this is the year that I am going to focus on those. So I am trying to quilt at least one quilt a week and I am really trying not to start new projects unless I finish something in a tote. The reason is that I am running out of totes to store things. It’s ridiculous that I keep buying more totes. I just need to finish things.  I mean if I were die tomorrow..what is going to happen to those projects that I have already sunk so much time into? They will end up in a yard sale for 50 cents and I would want to haunt my family for that. So in order to save them from myself…..I should just finish them…for all of our sakes, right? Right.

So I am! I am pinning quilts onto my small frame and working on them in my off hours….so that I can feel that sense of accomplishment.

The one I finished this week is this one:

It’s the Bee-Utiful quilt from the moda QAL last summer. It’s been pinned on my frame for quite some time…and I finally finished it. I will write a blog post about it later, today. 

I am not going to count any yardage on this because it was all together from last summer so it’s not really from my stash..it’s from a tote. haha.

I also finished this one. The blocks were a part of a block swap I was involved in…and I got a bit frustrated because all of the blocks I received were all different sizes. I couldn’t even use all that were sent to me..because they sizes were so off. So I used some that I could..there are so many cut off points ect. I didn’t want to spend any time custom quilting this…so I just did an all over design. I used scraps for the back. I will also post this one sometime this week. 🙂

Yards used to date: 30
