Inventory Quilt Project Sew Along

Have you heard of the Inventory Quilt Project being hosted by Just Wanna Quilt? The idea is to use one piece of each fabric in your stash (inventory, get it?) to make a quilt to capture your stash all in one quilt. You can narrow the scope of the inventory as much as you want - only using fabrics in one colour, for example.
I'm excited to be one of the featured designers for the sew along! I'll be making a new version of my Churn pattern 😊 Here's the original Churn quilt, made in 2017 for the 2018 Quilter's Planner.

I can't decide what colours I want to use for this version. I definitely have enough blue fabrics to use each fabric only once, but I've already made one blue version, in the baby quilt size. Of course, the Pantone colour of the year is Classic Blue, so that might be just the excuse I need to make another blue quilt 😊

I probably have enough green fabrics, too, but I don't know that I want a quilt that would be that green. I'm going to have to think about this a bit more, and probably take a good long look at my stash.

If you want to take part in the Inventory Quilt project sew along, there's a Facebook group you can join and you can also use the hashtag #inventoryquilt.

If you want to use Churn for your inventory quilt, pick up the PDF pattern or the printed pattern, whichever you prefer. My Scraps Squared pattern would also be a fun option for an inventory quilt (I considered using it myself, actually!).

Will you be sewing along? If so, will you do every single fabric in your stash, or every fabric in a single colour, or some other variation?


  1. I have not heard of that QAL. It would be fun, but I already have too much on plate so I'll pass this time around. Good luck with your project.

  2. I know this QAL, but still need to decide which pattern to use...

  3. Oh my! That would be a lot of work! I'm picturing myself pulling out piles of fabric, cutting into each one, and putting it back again. (I guess I sort of did that when I made my Cascade quilt.) I won't be participating, but making such a quilt would definitely be a good way to identify one's stash inventory. I bet lots of quilters will have fun with this one!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
