Stashbusting 2011 - Week 43

Its been another few weeks since I did a stash post, but I've actually done some sewing...some how. ;-)

I took a class last weekend for a pattern called Labyrinth by Debbie Maddy.  I've modified the "super twin" size a bit as I don't really want a quilt to be 70 x 110".  I've "cut off" the two and bottom two rows such that my quilt will end up being 70 x 90".  Here's a picture of what I have so far....and its COMPLETELY from the stash!  ;-)


I also went to the Empire QuiltFest yesterday.  Its a local quilt show that is held every 2 years.  I really should enter a quilt into it the next time they have it (2013).  There were a ton of spectacular quilts and some not-so-spectacular.  Overall, it was good to go see it and I have a lot of new ideas now.

By far, my favorite was a Hawaiian type quilt.  It won 2nd place overall in the show and won the prize for super large applique.  It was a king sized quilt that was all done by hand (applique and quilting).  It was the quilter's own original pattern.

I took a ton of pictures at the show, but I'm not going to put them all in this post...since this is stash busting after all. :-) 

So here's my numbers:

Added This Week:       0 yards
Added Year to Date:    43.89 yards
Used This Week:         1.76 yards
Used Year to Date:      30.25 yards
Net Year to Date:        13.64 yards
