Progress report 2 - 50 quilts from stash challenge.

I have been concentrating on quilts and finishing them so I am up to 27 quilts from stash. Apart from the joy of having the finished product to give away ..... there is also the possibility of easy movement in my sewing room and none of the storage boxes are overflowing in cascades onto the floor. Most are now empty enough to put a lid on - if I wanted to.  However the piles of finished quilts in other rooms, which awaiting collection or postage is becoming a problem!!!!

The one area of the no buy that I have hit a problem with is my membership of the monochromatic challenge. I have so little yellow fabric that it has just not been possible to complete this without buying some.Of course this means that these quilts will not count in the 50 quilt challenge.

So here is number 27 which is also finished quilt number 150 in my personal data base (lifelong) - I have called it Rust Dreaming -


  1. nice use of your 'rust' fabrics. I didn't officially join the the 50 from stash but have been working from stash the last couple of years. I gave away a lot of pieces I could have used as borders to make some of my smaller tops larger. oh well.
    I did my yellow from alicia's scraps. Do I need to send you some?

  2. I spent a little time looking at your posts - what a creative quilter you are! Great projects. Thanks for posting the photos!

  3. Way to go! I didn't do the monochromatic challenge, but I saw that some people made just one placemat, or mug mat when they didn't have much stash to work with.
    I'm also half way on the 50 from stash, and nothing seems lower. I hope to finish some bigger projects next week with a 4 day retreat.
    Congratulations on the halfway point of 50 from stash!

  4. Congratulations on doing so well on the 50 quilt challenge. I'm in ir too but nt doing nearly as well as you.
    Love the rust quilt.
