Sunday Stash Report - Some Unexpected Finishes

The finishes I have had this week were all unexpected and largely unplanned and the one project I had thought I would finish lies waiting to be completed.

On Wednesday at Patchwork I finished off a baby quilt for the Angel Baby - Quilts of Love project that our group is supporting. I am not sure why I was surprised that I got it finished since it was only tiny but... I was. I forgot to put the border on it which might have  helped finish it more quickly and it meant it was undersized but not to worry. It was 46cm square (18") . Fabric used .58m

Our cat litter tray is down stairs. I have a plastic bag with plastic bags in it hanging on a door knob nearby to put the daily deposits in when I clean it out. I decided to make something more decorative and on Wednesday afternoon I whipped up a bag to hold the bags. I used cat fabric and the bag is for the cat's bags so I have called it my Cat Cat Bag!! It too is only small (sized dictated by the fabric to hand) 40cm x 46 (16" x 18") Fabric used .17m

Thursday I decided to make Fangirl some placemats for her birthday... which was Friday. She loves Doctor Who and much of decor has that blue theme. So I decided to make some placemats in various blues. I made them all quilt as you go. 3 of them are angled strips going the width of the fabric and 3 are crazy patched starting with a 5 sided shape and building out with strips to the edge. I got the 6 made on thursday night (hence one of my late nights as reported in this week's Friday Fitness blog) Friday morning I worked on getting them bound. I did it all by machine and its not as neat as it might be but I doubt she will mind. Each mat was 30x40cm and the 6 of them used up 2.13m of fabric.

I was going to be able to say I have no fabric in this week but today at church a friend gave me some scraps however I left them behind accidentally so can't measure them so will add them next week. I got some more fabric from another person but that is to go into a project she has given me to complete so won't count that at all.

So my statistics for the week
