Stash Report - March 27

Allietare is about 1/2 quilted, so I should be able to finish it today.  The backing for that one used 7 yards of fabric from my stash.  Here's a sneak peak at the backing fabric on the take-up roller of my long arm. It has the black & brown, plus a little bit of blueish-grey.  Not perfect, but it was in my stash and there was enough of it, which was good enough for me.  It makes this quilt 100% stash fabric!

I also finished binding Flowers in my Windows, which used 3/4 yards of fabric. Amazingly, I had actually cut the binding and set it aside with the quilt when I finished it last year, so there was no tearing around trying to find something that worked.  I wish I could force myself to do that more often :) 

The whites and reds in this quilt are all scrappy, and the black is a peppered cotton. Beautiful soft fabric, but it frays like crazy.

And a peak at the backing fabric which caused me grief. Who would have thought those little lines would show through.  Double batting did solve the problem, however.

That's another finish off my Q1 Finish-Along list, so I'll be linking up with the 2016 Finish Along when the time comes. My Q1 plans can be found here.

Totals this week:
7 3/4 yards out, nothing in.

2016 totals:
69 3/4 yards in
96 1/2 yards out
Total: 26 3/4 yards out
Head over to Patchworks Times today for more stash reports. 


  1. Flowers in My Window may be my new favorite -- so simple and elegant. I've been trying to make the binding when I make the back. It goes with the quilt to the LAQ and she's good about keeping track of it and returning to me.

  2. Flowers in my Windows turned out beautifully. Hour Allietare is looking great. In my book if it's in the stash, there's enough, and it won't show through the front, it's good for the back.

  3. Flowers in my windows is beautiful - congratulations on the finish! Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global FAL hosts.

  4. Both quilts are beautiful but I especially love the red, black, and white one. Very striking.
