Stash Report, week 44, 2013 and Scrappy Saturday on Sunday

I've been watching the posts at So Scrappy for a long time. She chooses a colour of the month to concentrate on for using up scraps. I've been wanting to participate for a long time, so I've decided to jump in. There's also been a quilt that I've been wanting to make for a long time, a triple four patch. So, I've decided to combine the 2. I've been doing really well with finishing things lately, and since this will be long term project, it won't take that much time from finishing other things.

So, I'll use these blocks above as the body of the quilt, eight of each month's colour.And then since I'll have little four patch units left over, I'll use these as the border. I played around in EQ7 for a while to get the sizes and the numbers of blocks that I'll need. I have 5 more browns picked out, so I can work on them off and on through the month. And every little bit helps to increase the stash used numbers.
I finally managed to get the Great Granny finished, so there was border fabric cut and used for her, and I worked on Lazy Sunday, but that fabric was already counted, so there wasn't much fabric out this week.

Used this week:                                            1.4 yards
Used this year:                                     120.25 yards
Added this week:                                            0 yards
Added this year:                                     165.55 yards
Balance:                                                   45.3 more yards in than out.
I'm linking up to Judy's Stash report and to Soscrappy Saturday


  1. What a fun block. It looks like a perfect choice for the rainbow scrap challenge. Thanks for joining in!

  2. Your brown blocks are really nice. I always like double four patch quilts and there are so many layout options. Have fun with this one!

  3. Looks like fun. This will be a very nice quilt.

  4. Glad you are joining in the challenge! You picked a great block to work on. Looking forward to watching it progress.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
