Merry Christmas & Stash Busting Report 3

angel announcing and you shall call His name Jesus
Merry Christmas to all my family and friends both in and out of Blogland. It came sooner this year than ever before. Is that possible? May you feel God's love as you celebrate the gift of His Son!

I forgot again to report Sunday on my stash busting, but last week no fabric entered my house. I did make one pillowcase and two potholders from my stash and wrapped the potholders in a FQ of my fabric. So I did make some progress! The pillowcase was made from Raggedy Ann & Andy fabric, but I didn't take a picture. For the potholders, I used the double handled basket pattern from Jo Morton's book "Vintage Charm" and added a border.

I love that pattern, and anything in brown and off-white looks good. Merry Christmas!

What a wonderful idea to use a block to make potholders, I love that block! I have that book too.
I have actually seen the antique quilt that quilt was based on.
Wonderful quilt and someday would love to make a quilt with that block.
good for you on your stashbusting.

I'm new to this blog thing but I notice many of you talking about using up stash. I have a suggestion, use your stash to make Quilts of Valor for our wounded military. google on the internet to find a chapter close to you. It is such a wonderful use of fabric, you can use up the old stuff, they don't care, they are just so happy that someone has thought enough to make a quilt for them. We have a very active group in Minnesota, and the requirements are simple. A lap size with a matching pillow case and a label, letters too if you want.
