Summer Stash Busting 2019

Summer Stash Busting 2019 Finish-A-Long with HollyAnne Knight of String & Story

As the weather warms up, it’s a perfect time to freshen up our sewing spaces with a bit of cleaning out and finishing up. This year, for the 2nd Annual Summer Stash Busting, we’re focusing on works in progress. It’s easy for half pieced quilts and finished tops to pile up— let’s get them done!

Follow along with SSB blog posts HERE


Registration Closes TUESDAY, 5/7/19

How the Finish-A-Long Works: By registering for the FAL, you’ll commit to which four WIPs you will be working on and what stage of completion you will get to by the deadline (cut pieces to a complete top; a top to a finished quilt; putting the dang binding on, etc). You will have 2 weeks for each WIP, and the goal is for you to wrap up some of those projects that have been sitting around forever and really just need a little extra push to get done and out.

WIP Deadlines: May 11; May 25th; June 8; and June 22nd. WiPs will be submitted via round-up post in the Quilting Rockstars each week or via #RockstarFAL on Instagram

Registration Perks: Registered participants in the Finish-A-Long will receive four fabric labels (one for each of their WIPs; pictured above) commemorating Summer Stash Busting 2019 and will be eligible to receive prizes. (Huzzah!)

Prizes: A random winner will be chosen after each WIP deadline from among registered participants who get their WIP to the pledged state of completion. Participants who finish all four WIPs on time will be eligible for the Grand Prize. WIP prizes will be sponsored by Aurifil, Hobbs Batting, Paintbrush Studio Fabrics, and Make Modern Magazine, and the Grand Prize is sponsored by me. (Nearly all prizes CAN be shipped internationally. If prizes cannot be shipped internationally, I will provide a prize to the international winner)

Grand Prize: A seat in the Fall Rockstar Status Free Motion Quilting Course ($150 value) OR $150 USD of custom long arming services (winner’s choice).

Registration Cost: $20
(You are welcome to sew along with us on your own without registering, but Finish-A-Long labels and prize eligibility are only included for official registrants)

Keep Track of those WIPs

Looking for an easy little worksheet to see what you’re working on and what is left to do? Use the Rockstar WIP Tracker! Use it as is for general WIPs or circle the stage of completion you’re aiming for during the Finish-A-Long to make sure you meet your goal on time. Don’t forget to copy down those WIP Due Dates in the margin! (May 11; May 25th; June 8; and June 22nd)
