Another March Finish and a Stash Report

Whew!  I finished my 6 & 6 in 2018 and my Scrap Attack March goals by the skin of my teeth.  Not really, I still have almost five hours left in the month, but I need to rest once in a while.  It did help that I was able to use the same project for both goals, but it's still two finishes this month, and I like it.  A few days ago I told you about the blue Tom and Jerry quilt I finished.  Today I finished the orange quilt.  

I backed it, quilted it, and bound it with yellow.  I thought it looked good with the cheese!

I had fun taking photos of this one, but I think I need a new venue.  It's getting harder to figure out how to get good shots in my courtyard!

Both quilts will be in the mail next week to Little Lambs Foundation for Kids.  You can see details of the quilt drive for Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge here.

And now for my March stash report.  I did okay even though I bought way more fabric than I wanted to.  My goal is at least 10 yards a month so I have a little catching up to do.

Fabric Added in March  -    4.5 yards
Fabric Used in March  -    17.37 yards 
Fabric Added Year to Date  -   8.5 yards
Fabric Used Year to Date  -   36.6 yards

Net Fabric Used in 2018  -  28.1 yards 

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict,  Pomegranate and Chintz, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, and Tish's Adventures in Wonderland.


  1. Love that cheesey backing! These both turned out so cute and perfect for a little one's backpack. I think your backyard makes a great photo spot. The red quilt has a lattice look to it that goes so well with the chair :)

  2. Aren’t those just the cutest quilts! So sweet of you to be so giving.

  3. Oh, I *love* the orange one! Yellow was a perfect choice for it, and the pictures are so pretty in the courtyard.

  4. WOOP WOOP LOL You did GOOD, Im slipping up on my UFO's LOL But crept in only by minutes on a UFO by staying up till 2.30AM !!!! Love the cheedda on that wee quilt top. It looks perfect on that last border. Happy Easter Glenda from Down Under

  5. What a great quilt! I remember watching Tom &Jerry.

  6. Those quilts turned out so cute. To think they were supposed to be pjs, too. That's a great way to use up stash. Good job.

  7. Congrats on your finish!! Both quilts are fun and are sure to bring a smile to a little one's face. I hope you got a little bit of rest after your finish :)
