A Stashbusting Weekend!

Well boy did I bust some stash this weekend! I leave for retreat on November 2nd and I decided on Friday that I needed to start getting projects together as well as finishing up some swap blocks that I’ll be handing off at retreat to my BFF Nancy πŸ™‚

So I managed to cut out 2 quilt tops, 2 1/2 sets of swap blocks and the setting blocks for another top I want to assemble at retreat.

The swap blocks I cut are my 12″ Black and White Churn Dashes and 12″ Scrappy Buckeye Beauties. The 1/2 set occurred when I realized that I had cut, pieced, pressed and trimmed too many 6″ HSTs for the Buckeye Beauties. So I will make some more 4patch units and have another whole set of Buckeye Beauties.

Here’s the 2 sets of swap blocks I finished:

And here’s the setting blocks that I am going to use to set some swap blocks:

And this is the basket that I’m collecting my retreat projects in. I still have some more pre-cutting to do over the next week and a half or so before I leave though.



  1. Wow, you are organized! LOVE the Churn Dash blocks – I’m working on some myself but yours are black and white – my favorite! Both of your quilts are going to look fantastic.

  2. Talking about organized! I love the black and white quilt…great.And, I am drooling over the lime green fabric, another favorite of mine.Hugs,Traci

  3. You need to quilt, quilt, quilt!! I am glad you are getting the time in! I should have sewn more but have become obsessed with getting my room cleaned up once and for all!

  4. I love love love the buckeyed beauties πŸ™‚ I am so going to have to make one…did you see Leah’s?? I’ve been getting alot of compliments on my new pic. Do the blocks look familar to you??? They are hanging just like this in hubby’s office at work πŸ™‚
