Sunday Stash Report - September 4th 2011

No fabric bought or used this week, my stash remains the same as last week.  I didn't finish my August UFO either, I find that I don't have the right shade of green thread and can't make up my mind of what other thread to use or if a trip to the store is needed.  While I wait and since we didn't have a Saturday Quilting class and I stayed home, I pulled the 1/2 square triangle patches made while piecing this quilt back in January and February (NYE mystery)
At first I wanted to make a tote bag and made two of these panels, they are 19 1/2" square. Now,I think, too big for a tote but big enough for a couple of pillows, they would be perfect to use with the quilt (whenever it's finished)
I still had many patches and made this other panel (on the left).  This one is about 24" x 19" and I think if I add a couple of borders, it would be ideal for a bag to carry my cutting mat to class or a wall hanging.
I still had a few patches and made four broken dishes blocks that finished at 5" and four flying geese blocks also finishing at 5".  I added some sashing and borders to the broken dishes patches but I don't like it.  Wrong color and proportions
I still don't know what I want to do with the flying geese
I had lots of fun with these little  1 3/4" pieces, I have lots more from other projects and I want to play with them too.  I'm all alone in the house today, Yeah! Another day of fun in the sewing room!.

You sure got a lot of mileage out of those leavings. I have quite a nice pile of HSTs myself and I'm eager to put them to use too!

Good ideas on putting your leftover blocks to good use.
