Stash report-Month of January

I think I would like to try keeping track of fabric this year. I told DH that I thought I should try again to be "NoBuy" this year. DH gave me a fat quarter bundle from connecting threads for Christmas, and after Christmas I ordered some large pieces of it as they had it on close-out. It is still sitting in the sewing room, waiting for someone to tackle putting it away.

One is the flannel quilt for DH, the other is one of the charity quilts for "Quilts for Kids". This one was made using their kit for the top, but I supplied the backing and batting.

The next one is for D Niece #2 - the one that came the day after thanksgiving for pillowcase day. That was the day I learned that she no longer liked pink, so I made this one in the next few weeks. It is made from Judy L's Freeze frame pattern. Thanks for the free pattern. It was one of her "hour a day" projects, and I think she had it timed about right for me. I did enlarge the borders, bot…
