Sunday Stash February 2, 2020

One month out of twelve done already! How are you doing on stash usage?
I’m in the home stretch on the challenge quilt, which I have named Destination Unknown. The facing is attached and partially stitched, the sleeve made and the starfish painted to match the other neutral fabrics in the quilt.
starfishThe focus fabric had some white space in it, which looked all wrong on the starfish. I used black Pigma pen to color in the dot pattern where there wasn’t any. I mixed brown and white paint for the background. I’m very happy with how it turned out.
I usually wait until the quilt is complete to count my fabric out. Since all the fabric is sewn and “committed” to the quilt I’m counting it out today. I expect to get the hand stitching done this week.
I’ll post a final picture once the quilt is finished.
Fabric In: 0
Fabric Out: 2.75 yards
Net Fabric Out: 2.75 yards

    I’m not sure which challenge quilt this is, but you did a great job matching the fabric design on the star. Hard to believe January is over already. And the days march on.

    What a great idea!! It does look more natural now. I am behind in getting stash out, a plus 10 yards at the moment. But I am committed to using Stash this year, so we will see how it goes.
