Stash Busting 2010 - Week 18



So I just couldn't resist! I had to join the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along. I'm using scrap stash instead of a jelly roll. With all the scraps I have, the toughest part was choosing which colors to use. I decided on pink and brown. I tried to make a pink and brown quilt once before, but that quilt had its own ideas and the colors changed. I like how this is starting out - kind of a chocolate cherries type of thing. The first two blocks are shown above. I'm only 3 blocks behind now. The next one is pretty simple, so I might be able to get that one done later tonight. We'll see...

On a sad note, Quilter's Studio, one of my local quilt shops is going out of business. There are some great deals to be had there right now. I stopped in on Saturday in search of fat quarters and possibly a layer cake for a couple of class projects that I have in mind. The shelves are getting bare there now and there were very few pre-cuts to be had. I did manage :) to buy four fat quarters - one of which will be for my Dear Jane quilt. So I guess that gets added to my stash! There were some great deals on yardage -- 50% to 70% off some really nice fabrics, but I was strong and didn't buy any. Maybe I won't be as strong next time I go by there...

Fabric added this week: 1.00 yards
Fabric used this week: 0.00 yards

Fabric added this year: 9.50 yards
Fabric used this year: 15.00 yards

Total stash used this year: 5.50 yards

Your choice of colors for the quilt-along are great. It is always sad when a quilt shop closes it's doors.

I love your pinks and browns!! I so wish I had chosen fabrics from my stash now that we are almost halfway thru the blocks. :-) LOL Happy stitchin'!
