I ordered a mystery fat quarter bundle from Missouri star quilt company. I liked all the fat quarters that I received. There were a few colors of the top fabric and nothing too wild. 

It was fun to see what was a mystery

Look what I found at goodwill this week. I found a bag of scraps - be still my heart. I liked the colors and it looked like the pieces were decent size. I am taking stuff to goodwill in the BIG cleanup of summer 2021, but, then, I have to look inside......

happy in a bag
L-R: half yards -fat quarters- quarter yards- scraps

There was 3 yards and scraps and all very nice. I paid 3.50 for the bag.

stash report May 17, 2020 from Making A Lather

I have uncovered another bag of goodwill fabric from before isolation. According to the look of the room I am organizing, I could find many more. It's a blessing that goodwill is closed. Hopefully, I have lost the habit. that's funny. How could I pass these goodies, if given the chance. However, I do like having less fabric to organize.



This time I have finished birch trees quilt

stash report April 26, 2020 from Making A Lather

I have been digging through bags of fabric and scraps trying to organize a little bit. It seems I have a little more time on my hands. I discovered this bag of fabric from a trip to goodwill from a time long gone. I think it must have been just before my hubby's surgery. I don't usually find this much at one time. Someone must have been cleaning, too.



It's time to confess and add it to the numbers. But, I have finished 3 quilts since last report.

stash report Feb 2, 2020 from Making A Lather

I am thinking I will do a stash report monthly instead of weekly.
Every time I try to use a coupon at Joann fabrics, I don't find anything not on sale, but, I come home with remnants. My rule for remnants is that the fabric has to be on sale in the first place, so that it is half off the sale price for the remnant. The better the sale on the fabric, the more tempting the remnant. My favorite thread was on sale, too. I really like the coats and clarks for paper piecing. It is 50 weight ...

Well, January was a bust, sort of. . . . . from Books, Hooks, Sticks, etc.

So, here goes, I did NOTHING on my January OMG project, you remember, the crocheted tote bag. . . .

BUT, I did get quite a bit of sewing done in January. As well as a bit of downsizing from my craft supplies.

I completed a pattern test quilt top. . . but I can't show that yet since the pattern has not yet been released.  It is from Patterns by Jen and I hope to be able to show it shortly.

I am working on sewing up from my scrap basket. . . I am doing framed squares, Square Dance blocks, and another block that ...

goodwill treasures from Making A Lather

On a recent visit to goodwill, I discovered this small quilt. I was intrigued. It was hand pieced, but definitely not old. The background was muslin, and appeared to have been washed. I have a hard time leaving these kind of partial quilts, knowing they could be used as a donation quilt. Most of the work is done.



I also found this little bit of quilt that was started but not finished. There was a lot of work in this. It is a reminder to me that I should work at finishing before I dislike something. My time and effort ...
