Stashbusting 2011 - Week 2

This week was a good week for stash busting.  I used a little over 1 yard of fabric for the borders on Judy's Shine on Bayou Cane pattern from her book Weekend Quilts.  I really liked the quilt when she did it as a Quilt-for-an-Hour project, so I decided to do that one first when I got her book.  I'm saving some pictures until I get the top completed.

I also used up some 2.5" squares this week (actually, a total of 80 of them) to start making 8" blocks for a scrappy quilt.  My goal had been to use 56 of them this week (so it would be 1/4 yard), but I was able to get a bit of sewing done on Wednesday when I was released from Jury Duty and again yesterday.  I hope I can keep it up and I'll blow through the 12 yards in no time. ;-)

With a good attitude, I'm sure you will plow through the 12 yards. Great work!

With a couple of weeks of good sewing (or a few backings to make) you will get through the 12 yards in no time.

Don't you just love it when things work out and you find some extra time to sew?

Looking good! I also have the Shine On Bayou Cane quilt partially done, and will finish it SOMETIME this year! It's so helpful to have goals.
