Weekly Stashbusting Report & A New Mystery!

Another good week for this stashbuster! Here's what I accomplished this week:
  • Finished the nametags and busted 2 yards of stash and a nice chunk of batting scraps

  • Finished 2 bucket totes (the second is pictured in this post) and busted 4 yards of stash (including scraps) and another nice chunk of batting scraps
  • Pulled fabrics for Bonnie's from Quiltville's Mystery all from the stash!! (photo of the fabrics in this post)
  • Did not buy any fabric at all!!!

Here are my goals stashbusting goals for the coming week:

  • Cut and piece step one of the mystery
  • Make a wallet to match the second bucket tote
  • Make another bucket tote and wallet for a Christmas gift

  • Avoid buying fabric!

This is the second bucket tote I made this week. I pulled a FQ pack that I bought at a show this year and turned those pretty fabrics into this lovely bag.

Here are the fabrics I chose to use for Bonnie's new mystery quilt. There are 25 FQs which I have been saving for a special project. I've decided this will be the special project. I'm sure they will look even prettier as a quilt than a roll of FQs. For the "accent" color I'm using this nice medium sage tone on tone that matches some of the darker tones in the FQs and the background is a piece of Kona Cotton in the color Maize. I bought the Kona after I bought the FQ bundle and it will go nicely in this project (I hope).

And here is another gratuitous kitty picture. Here's Tino, he likes to pretend he's my hubby's teddy bear hehehe. BTW, Tino has slightly more fur than hubby, but not much LOL
