Stash Bashed It!!!

I went to the Stash Bash over the was major win.  Amazing women, friends from afar, new friends, lots of sewing and fabric.....heavenly.

Pj night

I bought fabric.  (Fabric diet officially off....I'm going to concentrate on the food diet part as I've gained almost 10 lbs since the winter.)  Stash Fabrics seriously makes me dance.  Beth is amazing!


I pieced a quilt top:

Geeky quilt

I pattern tested.  (not showing it here because I know it was ok to show at Stash Bash, but I haven't asked if I can show it off here yet)

I learned how to follow the directions for the Sew Together bag.  Seriously big thank you to Schnitzel & Boo for her teaching skills.  I never would have succeeded on my own.  Now I might make another one.

This was also my ALYOF goal for April.

Loved watching along - looks like you were plenty productive considering the amount of fun. Wish I'd been there - and hope to go

Susan said...

Good for you. Lovely finishes

Katy Cameron said...

Yay for all the finishes, and glad you had fun! Why was it you needed 42 needlebooks again?!

Beth said...

Retreats and fabric diets just don't belong together. Looks like a great time too!

Carla said...

42??? Wow. Great projects and lovely finishes

Wendy said...

I am in awe of how much you got done and don't see how you could have done more! Gorgeous quilts... And you made 42 needlebooks. 42???

Daisy said...

Looks like a great time! Sad to have missed it!

Michele said...

Good for you. It looks like it was a fabulous time.

Sarah said...

You still get so much done! Even when it's not as much as you thought you would. You must be a real head down and work person at quilt gatherings. I'm a move around and talk to everyone type. Sewing becomes the secondary reason for going!
