Slash the Stash--January Edition

So how did everyone do in January?  Any stash projects? Although I wasn't perfect in my resolve to not buy fabric.  I did pretty good.  I bought three yards of Kona for my Brrr quilt.  I also bought a few I-spy FQs to swap charms.  No "stash building" this month.  I felt pretty good about that since my primary goal this year is to work mainly from my stash.

I did finish two projects entirely from my stash in January. 


How about you?  Link up any project made mostly from your stash during January. This doesn't have to be a quilt, just a project. It doesn't even have to be finished. Just share what you are working on from your stash. Add the Slash the Stash button into any old post, create a new post or just add it to your sidebar.  Feel free to add any stash projects to my flickr group as well.

  1. Ha! I finished a quilt from stash this month but I can't post about it until it's gifted in February. Oh well!

    I really love your top quilt!

  2. I love that herringbone quilt! All my January projects were stash projects now that I think about it. I don't know if that's good (stash slashing!) or bad (the stash is just that big!).

  3. Hi Kati!
    I've only started projects from my stash - haven't finished anything yet!
    Hopefully soon!

  4. Kati, I'm so glad you are hosting slash the stash. This is perfect timing as I just finished a quilt made from 99% of my stash. It was a good feeling to use what I had, although I was a bit sad to be done with some of the fabrics. Kudos to you for sticking to your plan and not stash building this month. Unfortunately, I can't say the same, but there's always next month!

  5. Hi Kati! I love your quilts and you use always the colours so beautifully! I hope that I have time to join your great party - I use a lot my stash because most of my works needs a lot small scraps. Have a lovely day! x Teje

  6. Cool projects! I only used my stash this month, but other than a couple of bee blocks, a Kindle cover, and a project I can't share, I've not really got any big finishes just yet! Must get my posterior in gear...

  7. Great job, Kati! You made some gorgeous stash quilts. I did a good job of not building the stash this month too...but I do need to buy a few things soon.

  10. What exactly counts as stash? Something I won at sewing summit, I would guess? :) Is it anything that I didn't have to buy for the project? Because my stash is a bit ridiculous...

  11. Your quilts are great! Thank you for hosting this, I am trying to make sure I use the fabric in the cupboard a lot of the time.

  12. I made quite a few projects using my stash and my scraps but cannot show them yet (birthday presents etc.). But I added the button to my site.
