A Finished Flimsy

A couple weeks ago, when I decided to delay quilting Antler Dance until the sewing table could be retrofitted and before the sewing room was a construction zone, I started working on a piecing project using fabrics I already had on hand.

I was able to finish this flimsy, and get photos last week before it snowed here. The colors are true above; the bright sun kind of washed out the color in the outdoor shot below.

This will finish at 58" x 58" and will be a donation quilt when I need one. I like the nice masculine colors.

So does it count as "all from stash" if some of the fabric was purchased recently? The number print came from a sale in December when a LQS was closing. The tiny black background print came from another LQS's recent FQ sale. Do these count as stash? They weren't purchased with a specific project in mind, but I knew when I bought the FQs that they would coordinate with the number print.

The stripe has been in my stash for years; the black was folded up with it for some reason; and the tan print is left over backing from one of my Cut and Shuffle book quilts. These fabrics definitely count as stash.

Regardless, it's a finish and I'll be able to count out all the yardage on my stash report this month. Linking up with Friday Finish at Crazy Mom Quilts and Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

  1. I like it! That gives me an idea for using up some of my "ugly" prints ....

  2. Hey, once a fabric hits the stash shelves it's part of the stash. That quilt is so rich looking with all those yummy browns. (What, me saying yummy browns? Not usually my cup of tea...but this one...) That stripe fabric really sets off the rest of the design. That will be a great donation quilt for someone!

  3. A finish is a finish, no matter where the fabric comes from. And since you bought and put the fabric into your stash... I say it counts!

  4. Definitely stash-you didn't purchase it just to make this project!
    I really like this quilt-when I saw the first picture of the block I thought oh yeah! but the striped sashing really gives it a whole new life. What a wonderful finish.

  5. I would count it, anything used is countable, not matter how recently you bought it. :) And it is super cute!!!

  7. Beautiful finish. It's hard to find masculine quilts sometimes. Congrats on getting it all pieced and on the stash reduction.

  9. I would count it b/c it came home with you. Your quilt is gorgeous!

  10. Nice finish. Any fabric that enters your sewing room and finds its way to the shelf (or cutting table) is stash, in my book. Even fabric that is given to you.

  11. Yes--it is stash--even if it hasn't had a lot of time to age on the shelf! :)
