Sewing down my stash


Joyce at Plain Ol' Vanilla has started Sew Down the Stash, and I'm sewing along with her.







Melanie at Covered Porches sent me a charm pack last fall. I worked on the tablerunner at the retreat in November but wish I had finished it sooner. I love how it turned out.














The ultimate in stash sewing - I used the trimmed pieces of half-square triangles to sew this little quilt.

I'm still plugging away. I have two projects I'd like to finish up this afternoon!

I love your table runner and other projects. Great colors against a creme background. I love playing in the scrap box...it's like finding old friends...

I love the table runner and the little quilt. I need to start using more of my stash....and working on my UFO's. Charm packs are my down fall, they just seem to keep coming home with me....really need to do something with them! Hopefully after sewing the dress for my niece I will get busy, hopefully!

Mary, your table runner is lovely, I have a lap quilt that uses that same pattern, I should make a matching table runner, it never occurred to me until I fell in love with yours. I don't think I'll be saving my scraps to make a little quilt, but yours is super adorable, great job!

Mary-
Lovin' that runner. Did you use a pattern, or just do it in your head? I'm working today, planning to join some knitters next monday...hoping to, at least and figure out what to do with some yarn I bought...
Looking forward to Scrap & Sew weekend, but not knowing what I want to do yet...
It was good to have Julie back yesterday. Missed her for a few weeks.

Christine said...

Good job on both pieces! I love the runner!
Best wishes

Really love the simplicity of your table runner. Would you mind telling me the cut size of the big squares?

Monica @The Mennobrarian said...

Both projects look great, and I especially love the small quilt. What a great use of scraps. Can you tell me what size the squares are?

ALSO...congrats for winning my giveaway! Don't forget to send me your info. :)

Do you by any chance have a pattern for the table runner? I am teaching a class and would love to use this pattern. Thank so much. Diana radc85@verizon.net
