Stashbusting progress...

...
When I think about it, I've managed to quite a bit of stash this week. I have cut into 18 of the fat quarters in my box. From these I have cut a 10 inch square, which will be used for a pieced quilt backing, a stack of strips for the Crayon box blocks and some small squares from the remainder for leader/ender 4-patch blocks. There's still a bit of each of those FQs left, but I'm sure that I can find something to do with them.
I've got another 5 blocks for the Crayon box quilt and need about 5 more. I don't want it to be a bed quilt, a snuggly throw size will be OK for me.
We've got quite a busy week this week, with school concerts etc, but I hope that I can continue with this good start.

Oh and I nearly forgot the most important bit...

I didn't buy any fabric! I even went to my guild's Christmas party where there was a lovely quilt shop in attendance, the jelly rolls etc were all very tempting, but I resisted!

Hi Teresa!
I did just what you are doing a year or two ago! I loved cutting up my stash! And now I'm at it again! I'll be updating my blog today, if all goes well! :)
