Whew - - - it's done! My clean-out-this-stash project is finished!

This is the last quilt - TPP aka Teal-Pink-Purple. 

This quilt is 62" square. I used my quilting rulers to cross hatch this with a free-motion foot rather than marking straight lines.

I used Aurifil thread for the piecing and the quilting and Dream Cotton Batting. The back is a soft lavender and has some of the leftover blocks.

The binding has all of the colors of the quilt.

23 quilts are done and 22 will be or have been donated. I used the few fabrics in my stash that were not my favorites and many not-so-big pieces leftover from other quilts. I began this project 6-months ago in September, 2016. The flannel leader-ender project, started at the same time is still ongoing - those 3 quilts will be finished by next winter. 

I hope to keep my stash a little more under control - this was ridiculous. I'm so glad that these quilts will now go to people who can use them.

Here is a quick recap of the other 22 scrap quilts:

Grandsons' Donation Quilt

Turtle Quilt

Baby Elephants

Brights with White Squares


What's next? I still have a huge stash It does fit into my studio though and in addition to piecing the three flannel leader/ender quilts, I have my Kaffe Fassett quilt from last September to quilt.  I also have six other quilts started using just fabric that I own. It's hard to believe I used to only work on one quilt at a time. I don't think I'll have any problem staying busy...


  1. Wow, wonderful collection of your finishes. This latest one is too cute. Now on to the rest....let the fun stuff begin:)

  2. What a great collection of quilts you are donating. Beautiful.

  3. Thanks for the recap. That' an impressive collection of donated quilts. I'm sure they will brighten the recipients' days. Do you have any tips for using the quilting rulers? I bought a ruler foot and basic rulers last summer but really have not gotten the hang of them. I suppose more practice might help :)

  4. Oh no! Now you need more STASH!!!! I'm a firm believer that you can't have too much stash!
