MARCH Stashbusting --> 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!


SEW, let the stashbusting continue!

Stashbusters for March:

Swirl table runner from a class that our own MB member, quiltslots, taught. I just pulled some batiks from my stash instead of buying anything new.

I made these burp cloths for my boss's wife who is expecting their 2nd child on March 10. It will be a girl & I had girly flannel in my stash so I made 6 of these for her. I made her a baby quilt too but it was from a kit & not stash. I'll post it later for all to see. These burp cloths are so easy to make. The hardest thing about them is finding cloth diapers these days! :0

l have decided that as l make birthday blocks or charity blocks l am going to make 2 Christmas blocks by that same pattern. Some day l'll have enough Christmas blocks to make Christmas quilts for both of the beds in the Grands bedroom.

Here's the first ones l've made. This is one birthday block and 2 for me. They just happen to all be Christmas this time.


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

I did some stash busting this month. I did my Row Robin row three totally from my stash (sorry, no pic 'cause they're secret until the retreat), and I have already pulled the fabrics for row four from my stash also. I'm also planning on using my stash for Quiltaholic's Butterfly Block swap. Once I get those blocks started, I'll post a pic.

Rainbow, I love your idea of making the extra blocks when you make the birthday blocks. Before you know it, you'll have enough for another quilt.

Now the back. He picked out the top. I had to add to the back so I used the w/b and green to kind of draw the eyes away from the floreal for him.

All great project and that is a striking quilt Handie Ann. It looks masculine even with the flowers. Now, how did you get that small strip of green next to the black in the border? Really sets it off.

The small strip of green is a one inch strip of fabric that I folded in half right side out and sewed in with the border. When I quilted it I had to tack the strip down so the needle would go over it without pulling it up out of place.

Florida Farm Girl, thank you. l'm making different (and ones l've never made before) blocks for each B-Day block so l thought it would be a good way to practice the blocks, used up my old Christmas fabric and make a couple of Christmas quilts.

Handie Ann, l love the green, black and white combo. Your SIL should be pleased.

jayardi, l love that quilt. Cool pattern.

sewandsew, l was looking for the third pouch then l reread what you wrote. Cool! 3 zippers. l haven't mastered one, yet.

SS, like the quilt on your new wall!
Your decoration in front of the wall isn't bad either! Cool colors in your BOM. Smile

Nicki, cute burp cloths. l'd love to see the quilt, too.

MountainLaurel, your table runner is fantastic!

Elainetoo, lovely R/W/B!

l need to get busy and get more done. Does anyone know where time is disappearing to?

Crazy'boutquilts, no idea on the fabric. So many things end up in my stash, and I have no rememberence where they came from. Know I bought them, but it could have been at a quilt store, Joanns, a thrift store, quilt show, garage sale, estate sale, etc... Chris

DJ - Marion was kind enough to send me a photo of the instructions a while ago. They are basically made from 4 assorted 8" squares folded diagonally Wrong side together, a 4" square under the opening, an 8 1/2" piece for the back and 2 8" pieces of cotton batting (poly will burn) and lastly 1 8" square of silver heat-resistant fabric for the filling. You layer it:
1 batting
1 silver square
1 batting
8 1/2" square RS up
4 folded triangles, right angle in each corner
Sew around edge making sure all layers are caught. Flip inside out through the center.
Tuck the 4" square inside the opening and tuck back the bias edge of each triangle. Quilt to hold in place.
I hope that was all. If you have any questions I can try to figure out how to transfer the instructions over to you.
Joan

ETA Forgot to add a 2 1/2" x 6" strip for a hanging loop that can be inserted between the back square and the front triangles before sewing.

DJ and Quiltinana2: Here is what I used to make the most recent ones and it works better for me:

I used 5 8 1/2" squares of fabric (one for the bottom and 4 to fold into triangles for the top. I used one 8" warm and natural batting and 1 7 1/2" Insul Bright squares for the inside. It made sewing and turning inside out much easier.

DJ: I sent you a pm.
