Sunday Stash Report

I haven't had time for much sewing lately. I have been consumed with taxes. That day seems to creep up on me every year. I don't have much to report, but it is a loss

  • Incoming this week: 1 yard (3 - 1/3 yards pieces of shirting for the mystery quilt)
  • Outgoing: -10.5
  • YTD Incoming: 81.454
  • YTD Outgoing: 89.182
  • Net Loss: -7.729

Finally I am going in the right direction. It would be great if I could get my weight going in that same direction as well. Almost 8 yards down- that means roughly 42 yards to go. That's ONLY 3 bolts!

Title is annoying me!

OK, I have tried and tried to figure out how to make my picture go all the way across the title bar. It's the best it is going to get for now. If anyone has suggestions, please jump right in.

Art Quilt

It seams like I have been quilting this quilt forever. I am now half way done with it. I like the look of the straight lines close together. The lines are 1/4" apart. This is Ellen's quilt and she does a beautiful job at dying all her fabric and putting the colors together. The circles are all pieced.

This weeks projects are to finish this quilt and write the instructions for step 2 of the mystery. Several people have asked what my color choices were for the mystery. I am using my scrap box of reproduction prints and shirting fat quarters that I had in my stash.

Sunday Stash Report

A little late, but I was still busting last night. Most of the fabric busted was shirting fat quarters for the mystery quilt. I also gifted several pieces of fabric this week that I knew I would never use.

  • Incoming this week: 0
  • Outgoing this week: 5.5 yards
  • Ytd Incoming: 80.454
  • YTD Outgoing: 78.682
  • Net Gain: 1.771 Yards

I am almost back to the big goose egg. It is hard to believe how many yard of fabric I have recorded so far (both in and out)

A customer finish

It occured to me that I didn't post a picture of the finished baby quilt that I posted a while ago. It was delivered to the customer yesterday. I am very pleased with how the quilting looks. I put Moda snuggle on the back (just like minkee), and it quilted very nice.

There is a great wool tote givaway on Here is another great giveaway for a jellyroll and a pattern.
