Stash Busting Report Week # 41

Two bad 'things' for stash busting...

  • going to the local quilt shop and shopping the sale room.
  • pushing the buttons at one of my favorite online quilt shops.

My report follows:

  • fabric received in: 22 yards
  • fabric used: 6 yards
  • net fabric for the week: + 16 yards (added)

Net fabric for the year: + 37.5 yards (added)

What I accomplished this week:

  • quilted and bound Linda's 'Cher's Gym Floor' quilt
  • quilted and bound Teddy Patchwork quilt
  • pieced Organic Packer quilt top to a flimsy

Goals for next week:

  • quilt and bind Organic Packer quilt top
  • cut and sew pillows/cancer bags
  • cut and sew QOV pillowcases
  • mail quilts to Paula

This week, I am going to try to quilt my Organic Packer flimsy and bind it! woohoo! a project for the family :)

My day guild makes cancer bags and little pillows for the women's cancer treatment facility at the local hospital. Over the summer, the hospital gave away it's last bag, so now is the time to replenish the supply. Last month the ladies made about 15 bags, which was a great start to replenishing the supply!

My night guild is making QOV pillowcases to fill with 'goodies' to send overseas and, believe it or not, this is for Christmas! Are we really that close to Christmas?! DD and I did some QOV shopping last week at the big box store. I have two pillowcases made and want to make two more to donate. I like to donate in groups of four...I figure that there are four healthy human members of my family...so one donation for each of us. Does that make any sense?!

So this week, the focus will be on charity projects with a few of my own projects sprinkled in for good measure.

Busy, busy, busy girl!

You did a great job on my CGF quilt and I am proud to have it go to your friend Paula. That popcorn panto works well on about any quilt, doesn't it?

Let me know if she needs more added to the pile and some of these recently quilted ones might be able to go or some that are in storage right now.

So, what's your favorite online quilt shop? Don't you think you deserve a "reward" for being so productive, and with a sore leg no less?!

I like your idea of donating in groups of four. And what do you put in the pillowcases for QOV???

And your favorite online shop is? Sounds like you've been busy..

So the leg must be better? Good.

Great goals for the week, and I'm interested in the contents of both kinds of bags, too.

What is a "cancer bag" and what is it used for? An enquiring mind wants to know...
