stash report 28, 2021 from Making A Lather

I have a thing for charm squares right now. If I am not careful I may be able to wallpaper every room in my house with them.

just a few charm packs to add to the stash. I think I feel like I have too much fabric, but, what harm could a cute little charm pack do....

 These are so beautiful. I like to add to my reproduction fabrics from time to time, although I don't have any projects in mind for them. And I like charm squares, even though there is an upcost to them for being cut. But, I like the variety.

 I came home with 2 pieces of fabric and some precut scrappy squares from the guild donation table at our quilt show over the weekend. The bottom pink was 4 yards and the green was 1 1/2 yards. I'm proud of myself for not going to the half price sale.

I don't remember where now, but, these were on sale. and I added them to my 'collection' of precuts. I have a weakness for 1 1/2 honeybuns. They have all the benefits of jelly rolls, but are harder to cut accurately at home. I am getting lazy with cutting the scraps. And if we downsize, these are easier to keep. However, I don't know if I will ever be able to actually unroll them. haha

There was a sale. All good things happen when that is the case. I added a little to my civil war reproduction fabrics. I thought the orange one was more of a mustard than a cheddar.

I had to buy fabric to recut  the diamonds for sea swept. I bought 2 yards of kona snow from Joann fabrics. And, I nearly used all of it. Those blocks are done and I am starting the assembly of the quilt.

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

New batik charm squares arrived this week. I like the colors. I bought them "just because". We had a shop hop this week, and my daughter was here to go with me. There were 30 shops in booths in a big convention center. We both showed some restraint and came home with the same fabric too. That is always fun. Fabric prices had indeed risen. 

cheerful

I bought the template to make this fabric ring. It wasn't what I thought it was. But it works like the twister templates. First you sew the charm squares together and then cut ...

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.

garden party chain from Making A Lather

I have made 81 chain blocks for my garden party quilt. I really like looking at them like this. The stacks look impressive. It takes a bit of time to make these, and eventually they will be part of a quilt.
Now, I need to trim these and start the setting triangles.


One of my unexpected finds at the Indy quilt show, was an actual rug hooking project. It was in the garage sale among some bags of scraps. I just had to bring it home. I have a plan to make hooked chair pads for my dining room chairs ...
