Some of This and That on Monday

Gosh, it's been since May that I've done a de-stashing report.  I was at a YTD total of 46.39 yards.  Now let's see what I've used since then. Let me calculate:
Made a quilt for my DGS's preschool teacher - 2yards; various hexie flowers - .10 yard; a mug rug - .25 yard; a new charity quilt top - .75 yard; a backing for my elephant quilt - 1 yard; eight blocks for my VA quilt - .33 yard; and a back for my VA quilt - 1 yard for a grand total of 5.43 yards - not very good for 2 months!  But I'm happy to say I went through my stash and pulled approximately 20 yards of pieces of fabric to sell at my guild's annual yard sale at the  August meeting.   So that is much better and I can report  YTD total of 71.82 yards de-stashed.

On my design wall is another charity top I'm working on:
This is using some of those blocks children colored for us at the festival.  This is a free pattern offered by Luana at Equilter. You can see it here. Easy peasy.

What are you up to?  Leave me a comment and I'll come by to see your latest.  Blessings, all!

your destashing is going so very well, love the new little quilt, unsuccessful in finding the pattern but think I can work it out for myself must be coming along a bit as a couple of years ago would not have had a clue how to

Well done on the destashing. MIne isn't going quite as well
I would have a hard time making a de-stashing report - I mostly use small pieces - but I admire those of you that take the time for it!

Nice de-stash. Is there a reason I saw no mention of fabrics coming in? Have you actually not bought anything this year at all? I'm in awe, if so. =) Luana's pattern is cute, but I like your version, so far, better.

Such a cute quilt, I am going to look for that pattern. Your de-stashing numbers are looking good!

What a nice charity project! I love those coloring blocks going into it. :) Thanks for reminding me to work my monthly "community quilting" goal back into my normal routine for August.
