TOPIC: April Finishes

Re: April Finishes 10 Apr 2011 09:02 #61988

That's a wonderful finish, Agnes! I must get better control of my scrap stash!! I'm down and out for any sewing at the moment, but I'm definitely enjoying viewing the wonderful projects above that are being completed. Keep those inspirational pictures coming!

Agnes, I need to do the very thing you are doing. I recently retired and finally have time to go through fabric in my sewing room. I'm finding fabric, patterns and kits that I had forgotten I'd gotten. I always bought them for "my next project as soon as I have time". Now I have time and am going to enjoy every minute of it!!

There is no pattern or name as such for this quilt. This is true of almost all I do. This is the latest finish in my "Stash Buster" series that actually got started in 2000 as a Millenium project. Yes, that was over a decade ago. I have added a lot of fabric over the years but have kept it at a minimum for about two years now.

Details on this pattern: I had oodles of 2 1/2" cut triangles, sorted them into color groups. I also had many 2 1?2 and 2" strips. The project started as 6" Hole in the Barn Door" or "Churn Dash" blocks, whatever name you know this block as. Then I cut the 2" strips into squares and sashed with that. Then I sewed and sewed until I ran out of blocks.

i have similar blocks in pink and assorted all set to be sewn. My ultimate goal is to use up all my fabrics. Then I can start with a new slate and new goals.

Rather than start another section I will post this project here. Yes, it is a top only but it is a finish for me. This top now goes to a church group to quilt and sell to raise funds for an overseas mission. This is the fourth and last top to use the fall colored scraps I had accumulated over the years.

The last bits will become mug rugs. I am planning to make up a bunch for our 50th year reunion of high school graduation. We were only a class of 13 and the celebration is in Sept 2012 so I think I can get approx 30 made by then. I may also prepare signature blocks to sign at the reunion for my personal remembrance.

Seeing all these beautiful completed projects is starting to get me motivated. Keep it up girls I need all the motivation I can get. I got to thinking the other day and I think it has been over a year since I've really done much of any sewing or quilting. No wonder I'm losing my mind (at least what I had left)!
