Posts Tagged ‘hexagon templates’

This week, my step-daughter came over for dinner and told me about a quilt she has started making.  It’s her first large project, and I am really excited for her! This is the young woman who received the turquoise quilt for her birthday in March.

She prefers hand-sewing to using a sewing machine, so she is making a Grandmother’s Flower Garden by the English paper piecing method.  She found free hexagon templates and illustrated instructions at Cia’s Palette.

She wants to use all-plaid focus fabrics and asked me where she could find some.  We talked about recycling clothing, and then she chose 9 fat quarters out of my stash to take home with her.  That’s quick and easy stash-busting!  😉

I decided to keep the grey corduroy gift fabric in my Stash Report totals, as I’ve thought of a project for my personal use, as well as making donation gifts.   If I count gift fabric received, then surely I can count gift fabric given?  If so, that’s 2.25 yards out this week!  Here are my totals:

Fabric in this week:  0
Fabric in year-to-date:  46 yards
Fabric out this week:  2.25 yards
Fabric out year-to-date:  26.75 yards
Used (net):  -19.25 yards

To see how other quilters are getting along with their stash busting this week, please visit Judy’s blog for a list of links.

Happy Quilting!
