STASH REPORT - Week 7, 2013

Used this Week: 15 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards

Used year to Date:  50.42 yards
Added Year to Date: 0 yards 

Net Stash Decrease for 2013: 50.42 yards


Yea--I hit the 50-yard mark!  I finished the black/yellow pineapple quilt and made the backing.  Then, just because I wanted to have a net decrease of 50 yards, I made 2 pillowcases.  If you remember my "watercolor" pineapple quilt, you will recall that the pineapple pattern isn't really distinctive because the fabrics blend too much.  That was why I started the black/yellow one--and made a 2-color instead of a 3-color quilt.  Anyway, I had just enough yellow to make a 3X3 setting.  If you look closely at the 2d picture, you will see that I added a blue piping between the 2 black fabric borders--it's sort of hard to see at a distance.  Anyway, because I didn't have enough yellow to insert a yellow border, I decided to pull out the piping foot for my machine and make some piping.  Once I figured out how to do it, it was really simple--and I love the touch on the quilt!  There's just a bit of blue and yellow/gold in the black fabric.  The pillowcases were made with a Mardi Gras fabric--it was $2/yard on sale!

So--now on to the rest of my February goals--longarming and the red Xmas basket quilt (UFO).  Guess that means I'll finally have to decide on a setting and/or blocks to put around that center motif!!


  1. The blue piping is just the right touch. Very nicely done. Congrats on hitting the 50 yards out milestone!

  2. You have had some great finishes this week. The piping is the perfect detail for your quilt. Great numbers!!!!

  3. Your two color pineapple quilt is awesome and I like the piping effect. Way to come out of the box!

  4. Congratulations on hitting 50 yards and so quickly too! That piping detail on your quilt is precious, WTG! Jane
