Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

A Smidge More Fabric

Instead of throwing away the fabric and batting scraps that are too small for me to use, I’ve started collecting them to give to a woman in my small guild who uses them to stuff dog beds for the shelter. After cleaning my space this week, I had 2 bags full. Since the guild is not meeting, I drop them off at Show-Me-Quilting, in Raytown. A smidge more fabric came home with me.

The red  on the top and the black on the bottom will be used with the crazy blocks I bought at auction a few years back. The dinosaurs and hexagons will go into kids quilts, and the dotted fabric goes into my stash.  Now to figure out where to store the fabric from the past two days.  At the moment it’s neatly folded and stacked on a chair. I’ve got to sew to use it up.

Speaking of using it up, I pulled down my Flying Dutchmen Swap blocks and have started the quilts. The blocks will be framed in gray. The sashing will be be pink with gray cornerstones. I’ll finish it with a grey border. That will be 8 yards plus backing out of the stash, and another thing crossed off The List.

I crossed off Fix Narragansett Blues. I didn’t catch the bottom right 3 pieces under the binding very well and it pulled out after washing.  This is the result of my fix. While crossing things off,  I crossed off the pillowcase I planned to make.
