Marion2,
I love those potholders ! I would love to have the pattern if you don't mind pointing me in the right direction. They are so cute and different. My girls would love them.
Thanks so much. alice

Thank you WQFC for posting my table mat.
It developed from my scrap plastic bag. I probably save pieces that are too small!
I started playing with those small pieces one day and ended up with a mat for our table.

I'm loving all the finishes on here! It's nice to see things getting done in the first month of the new year!

That fabric is from the line of the first quilt I made. Gave it to a student's baby brother who was very ill (but recovered!)

All these projects are great! I have done just a few things like blocks and will post later. I also finished a cross stitch afghan I started in the early 80's but don't know if that counts.

Here's another stashbuster that I quilted up from a panel a dear friend gave me. The batting and backing and binding are all stash. It is another one for our project for Children's Hospital here in Columbus.

What GREAT stashbusting projects this month. I've been making some of those microwave soup bowl pot holders lately from my stash to give to a few friends. I just love those things. I'm not taking pics of them as I make them so I have none to share. I'm hoping to make 4 more this week-end.

Great projects!

Seeing Stars...I really love your transparency quilt...think I would like to give that a try but haven't taken the time to think it through with fabbies yet.

I decided I better add some of my projects to all of your lovely finished stash busters. I have really been trying to use stash the last year also and even more so this year.

I have a friend who has Stage 3 cancer and is going through chemo and radiation treatments. She mentioned that during the treatments her shoulders would get chilly. So I put together a shawl for her from stash. Hopefully, it will keep her warmer.

I love looking through this thread. I can post I finished: 1 receiving blanket for my DD's new nephew, 1 car seat canopy for DD's friend who has a baby boy due next month, 2 prs pj bottoms for both my DD's and a scarf for DGD ( 17 month) who loves to dress like her mommy. All were totally from stash. ( DGD found my pink cow flannel and is dragging it around saying Dute, dute, dute... dow dow dow.. . she can't say the hard C sound yet therefore cute and cow is dute and dow)

● ● ● I just finished this back. The flame fabric has been in my stash over ten years. It was time to use it up. I also have it with a yellow background. Now to figure out how to use that one up.

Hi Gonesewin. I usually lurk a bit. Just wanting to be more productive, and since I don't have my biggest time taker anymore, i hope to be a lot more productive in these next months.

So nice to see everybody being so productive. I made a couple outfits for a baby doll, plus a little fleece blanket and a tote bag to put everything in. Still need to make a little pillow to match the blanket.

Debbie- was that a free pattern for the tissue covers? I made some for the Christmas swap, but LOVE the sock monkey fabric and want to make one of my own. I collect monkey fabric and finally got brave enough to use some of it Smile

these are all great projects. Love them all.
I finished the Jan mugrug and a bowl potholder. Will have to take pics later...was traveling and not sure where my camera is.
I also made a Seahawks curly scarf but I sold it. Need to make another, I realize it doesn't count here but I have to share my Seahawks 12th man.
Love the Mountaineer blanket Twostep. My dad is from WVa.

QuilterJen,
the tissue box cover was a free pattern on the Connecting Threads website. The pattern fits perfectly on a Kleenex brand box but other brands are a little bit taller so I changed the pattern pieces to 4" x 19" and 5" x 19" instead of 3 3/4" x 19" and 4 3/4" x 19". otherwise everything stays the same in the pattern. Really easy. The pattern was called Blooming Tissue Box Covers.

I like QFK because they go so quidkly. Especially if you find them in your stash already cut!

I also finished WQFC's UFO challenge. I won a LOT of bright colored blocks a few years back. I hac made one quilt out of them for charity and had 76 left. Here's the major item - a large sized twin quilt

Posting this doll quilt for Cookie Quilts. Very cute!!! She'll be by later to tell more about it. I think this one is going to her DGD, but it motivated her to join the Mrs. Claus effort!

Thank you Jill, for posting the doll quilt for me.

It's for my DGD's birthday along with a matching outfit I'm making for her and her doll. I came across the two orphan blocks and decided to make the quilt.

Yes, it did inspire me to join the Mrs. clause project. I'm looking forward to that too.
