October Stashbusting - for those who shop their stash Sign In/Join

Welcome to the 2013 Stashbusting Thread.

I am Gonesewin and I will be starting a new thread for each month for everyone to post pictures (If at all possible) or tell about your stashbusting efforts. It does NOT have to be quilting! This can be any kind of Quilting & Needlework!

There are just 2 "rules" to join us: what you make make should be mostly from stash and it should be finished during the month you post it as finished - please don't post things you made otherwise - sew & tell would be a more appropriate thread to share those projects. There are no signups, or swapping or... Just this thread. Everyone is welcome!

As an incentive - or as a reward - cksvett has graciously agreed to give a prize to someone who completes a stashbuster each month if her name is drawn. Let's all be sure to thank her!

Stashbusters for October:

gardenpat

All I have done using stash lately is to look at it! My nephew's wife is expecting so I'll be making a baby quilt as soon as I know whether I should make it pink or blue. If it's a girl, I will have plenty of stash. If it's a boy, I may need to do a little shopping. I also see a bowl cozy in my future and I'm sure I have stash for that.

The bowl cozy was one of the mini demos at our guild meeting last month. What a neat idea and looks really easy.

Here's my first October stashbuster! It comes from Nickel Quilts book- Road to Paducah. I made it smaller because my backing ran out, but then I added the two borders with another backing fabric that looks good with it (another stashbuster left over!)

It is going tomorrow as a last minute wedding gift for a last minute wedding yesterday!

Can I count my Scraps to Treasures that I finished yesterday, even if I can't show a picture? Jayardi can confirm that I finished it, since SHE has a picture of it! I used stash for the fabric I sent, all my extra's, the backing, binding & the batting too! Smile

Thanks, britgal! Between canning and remodeling, I haven't been quilting as much as usual! Still have a bit more to finish remodeling before cold weather and holidays set in. It would be fun to get together sometime soon ( definitely not this week though)! Give me a call and we can catch up!!

Have two more baby quilts to start and finish before the end of the year! I better get off the computer and get busy!! Yikes!!! (The great thing about stashbusting is that I can start a project at night and work through the night without having to buy fabrics because I am using all stash fabrics!!)

sewloves2quilt and gardenpat - I love your work. sewloves2quilt - I love the pot holder... so pretty and functional! You should do that some friday night or just send me the pattern. I have to make another of your thread catchers one of these days for a friend. Good start to the month... better than mine for sure.

Just finished a charity quilt out of some fun monster fabric. The wording says "Monsters are Cool" and the colors are bright. Actually my DH found this fabric a few years back on one of our trips.

I made a baby quilt yesterday -- start to finish, all from stash, used 2 yds of fabric.
I also made 3 sewing totes.
Not at home to take pics. I'm working on hand-sewing binding, too.

Sewlovetoquilt- having made a Weaver Fever quilt a few years ago, I have one piece of advice for you: don't work on it after 9 pm or if you're tired! Ask me how I know and I can probably unnerve you with descriptions of how misplaced those blocks can get just by placing them "off"by 1/4 turn!!!!!! Good luck with yours!!!

And here is a messenger bag I made. I had this material for about four years before I did anything with it, now I wish I had a lot more of it. I have used this bag this week and for some reason I get strange guys who want to 'read' my bag while I am on the train coming to work in the mornings!

Here is my favorite section of the material because you know, when I think of how to keep 'the home fires burning' I always think of sewing. LOL

Who would have thought a "purse" would be a way to pick up guys!!!!!

Just couldn't resist, headielamar!

Don't you just hate it when you buy a fabric because you like it but don't know what you are going to use it for, and when you finally go to use it years later, wish you had bought more?

Really neat projects again this month... Chris

Loving all the cool projects posted this month!

Here's my all stash including batting and backing quilt. This is for a baby boy named Oxford who is due in Dec. They had his baby shower Sunday. Momma was thrilled with the quilt. She's using Route 66 as his nursery theme. l had 4 pieces of that fabric left over from another quilt and "waaa-laaaa!" a quilt was formed. LOL


======================
l would be unstopable IF l could get started!!!

ok, the list is updated Smile

AngelaC - if the s2t quilt is "mostly from stash", then it qualifies.

I've gotten some projects finished but they haven't been from stash Frown

I finally am back in my sewing room. After buying scads of fabric at the Linus Project fabric sale last weekend with KC1930, I'm now inspired to sew, sew, sew.
First I had to hem two sheets, fix some pants and a shirt and also a jacket. Then it was into my stash and to the drawing board to make the Microwave Bowl Holder from SewHappy's Oct 4th Partytime class.
I even tested mine with some rice using an old bowl that gets very hot when zapped. It worked perfectly. Thank you SewHappy for the easy class.

Haven't been on here in ages.. nice to see all the projects.

Have finally gotten back in the sewing room for a few minutes. Working on a kids quilt. Let's see does stash busting count if the back is from my DIL's stash, the batting is pieced from leftovers, the focus blocks are from someone in the quilting groups stash, and the 4-patches are from mine..

DebbiWI, no the WEAVER FEVER quilt wasn't hard...no seams to match...just a bit time consuming & you need to label ALL your rows to keep them in the right order!

I know you can do it!!! Big Grin

You can get the pattern on amazon:

`I think I have the magazine that the weaver pattern came out in (I just have to fine it, lol). I forgot to post pics of the stash projects I got done, the first is Any Witch Way from Quiltmaker sept/oct 09. I've been going to make this since the magazine came out and finally decide to get this done! All stash, including the backing
