Slash the Stash--May Edition

Last week was one of those weeks when I simply didn't feel like blogging.  I actually didn't think about it much--including Slash the Stash.  I forgot about it until a couple readers remind me.





First off, thanks to those who voted for my quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  I won in the ROYGBIV category!  There were so many great quilts this year.  I had fun browsing through them.

I admit it was a bad month for the stash.  I had my buddies Amy and Colleen pick up some loot for me from Market.  I am so excited about both bundles.  They are just pretty.  I haven't opened either one, but I do have two ideas in mind for the Simply Color stack. 



Looking back at the month, I finished way more stash projects that I thought I did.  These three quilts were made entirely from my stash (except some white I had to pick up for my improv quilt back and the retro flowers quilt).

The Retro Flowers quilt will get a post of it's own soon.  I finished it last week. 

I finished up a few more bags for the kiddos using Jeni's pattern from In Color Order.  The pink one is my absolute favorite. 

Finally I pulled this stack of fabric for a quilt for my niece.  My SIL asked me to make twin-size quilts for each of her kiddos.  We're starting with her daughter's first.  This will be a great stash project for June. 


I've also pulled a whole box full of fabric to sell on Etsy again, including some color wheel charm packs I cut from my stash.  I'll be listing those as soon as the post office delivers all my shipping supplies.  I've been working quite a bit to narrow my stash to what I know I will use.  It feels good to purge a bit.

So what stash projects have you been up to this month?

  6. That is so smart! I often look at some fabrics in my stash and wonder if they will ever go in a project.
