stash report 24, 2021 from Making A Lather

 These are so beautiful. I like to add to my reproduction fabrics from time to time, although I don't have any projects in mind for them. And I like charm squares, even though there is an upcost to them for being cut. But, I like the variety.

Sunday Stash October 24, 2021 from Quilt Paint Create

No change in the numbers.

I’m working on the feathered star blocks for the BOM quilt. You can see last week’s addition in the star point sections at the top right of the picture.

In 20-something years of quilting I have never made a feathered star block. These are also 18 inch blocks. That’s another first for me.

Fabric In: 7.625 yards

I added a few pretties to the stash. I spend too much time on the computer buying fabric.

Sunday Stash October 17, 2021 from Quilt Paint Create

I took some much needed time off work this week and had a girls’ day out in Shipshewana, Indiana on Friday. My last visit to the Amish community was over ten years ago. It looked different enough that almost nothing seemed familiar.

I did buy a small cut of fabric for the block of the month project. I didn’t have enough of the fabric I wanted to use. I was able to match it pretty close.

I also finished Waugh Street Christmas with usage for the binding. I’ll post a picture of that when the One Monthly Goal ...

the only changes I am making to my stash report is to add fabric. I really like scrap bags and I added 3 more to my stash. These were an eclectic mix. I should be able to separate them and actually use them.

No fabric in this week.

I finished quilting Waugh Street Christmas and trimmed it. I searched my stash for a red or green binding fabric with no luck. It looks like the border fabric will win by default.

I’m counting out the fabric for the quilt this week and the binding fabric next week.

Fabric In: 7.125 yards

Hitting positive usage has been a real challenge this year. We’ll see how long it lasts.

 I came home with 2 pieces of fabric and some precut scrappy squares from the guild donation table at our quilt show over the weekend. The bottom pink was 4 yards and the green was 1 1/2 yards. I'm proud of myself for not going to the half price sale.

No changes here last week, although progress continues on multiple projects.

We have three months left in the year. How are you doing on your fabric usage goals?

I expect to be back in positive numbers this month with the completion of this quilt.

It may not last though. My Guild’s fabric sale is the last Saturday of the month.

Friday check in: a September finish, the stash report, and OMG October from With Strings Attached

 


Rabbit, rabbit!  (Here is the explanation of the good-luck legend.) 

We get our Pfizer booster shots this morning --another good luck token.

Here's a collage of Michaelmas daisies for Michaelmas Day, September 29. (It's also Archangels Day but the other archangels don't have fall wildflowers named after them.)  

According to Wikipedia the traditional meal features goose . We're not High Church so we had chicken.  Maybe next year I'll remember to bake a version of St. Michael's bannock.

I don't remember where now, but, these were on sale. and I added them to my 'collection' of precuts. I have a weakness for 1 1/2 honeybuns. They have all the benefits of jelly rolls, but are harder to cut accurately at home. I am getting lazy with cutting the scraps. And if we downsize, these are easier to keep. However, I don't know if I will ever be able to actually unroll them. haha

No changes here last week. The sewing machine ran for less than 30 minutes.

With no sewing going on, I have to rely on something stitchy to add interest.

I picked up the penguins from the framer yesterday. I usually frame projects myself, but the piece needed a weird size frame and the outer border would have made a poor centering job obvious. I decided to let a pro handle it.

I have a couple more odd-sized pieces that need framed. I’m pleased with quality of the work and may take those in too.

Aren't these cute? They were on sale and I am always sad that charm packs don't make very big quilts, so, I bought 4.

I’m a little over half way through the quilting on Waugh Street Christmas.

I’d love to finish it this month, but there’s a lot going on this week. Some long days at work will cut into my quilting time.

Sunday Stash September 12, 2021 from Quilt Paint Create

I finished the runner that served as a practice piece for the Waugh Street Christmas quilting design.

I enjoyed quilting this one and loved the design. It did exactly what I wanted it to do. Panels are such a great way to practice free motion quilting.

This project was my September OMG. I was determined to finish it over the long weekend rather than dragging it out.

No fabric in this week. I haven’t visited a quilt shop in months.

There was a sale. All good things happen when that is the case. I added a little to my civil war reproduction fabrics. I thought the orange one was more of a mustard than a cheddar.

No change in the numbers. Maybe next week.

I finished the November blocks for Stars In The Night. I have five of the twelve months done now.

I pressed the seams open to help the blocks lay flat. There are seven seams coming together at the center. Open seemed like the way to go

I plan to work on the January blocks next.

I finished piecing my version of Bonnie Hunter's Bitcoin.  It is trickier to line up the columns than it appears. 4-5/8 yards used. 

I need to trim the top.  I'm not 100% wild about this but I can imagine using the 1.5 x 2.5 column idea in alternate settings ...

I had to buy fabric to recut  the diamonds for sea swept. I bought 2 yards of kona snow from Joann fabrics. And, I nearly used all of it. Those blocks are done and I am starting the assembly of the quilt.

No change in the numbers.

After much debating, I decided to resume piecing the Stars In The Night BOM. I wanted something I could work on 20 minutes at a time on week nights. With no such project I spend my nights stitching. That’s done wonders for my stitching wish list, but it doesn’t use fabric or reduce the long list of quilts either in process or planned.

Having ignored it for years, I spent a good while figuring out where I left off and how I wanted to approach it going forward. If I hadn’t scaled ...
