Rebuilding the stash

This past year, I have been digging deep into my stash and making a few dents and finishing a few projects.

These two boxes are something I enjoy in the fall (the colors look like leaves from a maple tree).  The designs are from Carriage House and The Good Huswife.

While at the LNS on Saturday, I found this oldie but goodie and thought it would be a nice addition to the set.  Apologies for the photo.

I am stepping out of my fabric comfort zone with this fabric, it is by Fig Tree.  I have discovered Missouri Star tutorials on YouTube.  I am late in trying and using the twister and have added one to my quilting tools.

AppleJack has a good eye for colors and when he is with me, I let him choose.

Midwinter Reds by Minick and Simpson, charm packs are so fun to use.

A short drive from the LNS is a wonderful fabric store--they have been in business for years and have a huge selection of trims and ribbons.

Off to stitch, I have a finish in my near future.


  1. Beautiful boxes! Great fabrics too!!

  2. The box finishes are wonderful! I need to spend some time making a dent in my stash :)

  3. I am loving the fall colors you used. How satisfying to finish up some projects with the prospect of starting new ones in those beautiful fabrics,

  4. Am loving the colours on the top box, just gorgeous - I need me some boxes like that - seems like you are in a creative mood - Amanda

  5. Beautiful finishing on those boxes. Lovely! Love your new fabrics as well. I need to look up that pattern you're talking about.
