Stash report

I have been negligent about posting lately and I want to change that.  I have been pretty good about not adding to my stash!

I attended the quilt show last month in Tucson with friends.  We took a bus from one of the local shops from Phoenix.  It was great fun, there were snacks and contests and prizes and none of us had to drive.  The show was wonderful and those lassies not only know how to quilt but they also know how to put on a show.  I won a FQ on the trip home and I also received a free FQ at a shop we stopped at.

I am currently working on a mug rug swap sponsored by the Quilting  Gallery and Mishka's Playground.  The rugs are based on a set pattern and the theme is this years Winter Olympics.  I am a little behind but hope to have completed enough to post for design wall tomorrow.

I had some Arizona State fabric in my stash and I wanted another Arizona fabric to include in the mug rug.  I purchased a yard of fabric with saguaro cactus and Native American symbols.  I also found a batik that had Thunderbird symbols on it, so I purchased some to send with the mug rug as a bonus.

So I have added 2 yards to my stash this year and I have not used any-I can only improve from here.

I wanted to remind you about the Traveling Stash Box as well.  It is currently in the hands of the Cynical Quilter and she is looking for someone else to pass it on to.  Check out her blog.

Check out the other stash reports at Patchwork Times too.

  1. I can only improve from here - that the attitude we need. Love the fabric you bought. Wish I could find some for California. Thanks for sharing.
