Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Stash Report

Last week I finished two pieced backs, so I’m counting the fabric now instead of waiting until the quilts are quilted. I’ve dropped below 100 yards added!

Stash Report

This past week I actually finished stuff to the point I can count it!  Two backings – one for the quilt pictured above and another shirt backing for one of the other Disappearing 9-patches. Normally I don’t count backings until the quilt is quilted, but given that this back is pieced and it could be a quilt on it’s own, I’ve counted it now. There is binding and the label to count for the Orange Disappearing 9-patch as well. As you can see, Gracie approves.

Stash Report

It was a long day Saturday — I finished cutting the rest of the squares for the quilt backs — and the first 80 are sewn into groups of 4. But I simply ran out of steam before I could finish the back, so no fabric counted as out this week.

I finished the Green Disappearing 9-Patch top so that’s nearly 6-7/8 yards of countable fabric used.

Stash Report

I didn’t get the Green Disappearing 9-Patch finished this past week, but it’s closer. The last 13 blocks have the 3-patches stitched together so unless I have to work last this week, I should have the top done by the next report.  Who knows, I might even have a backing pieced — although I now need a 4th shirting backing for my Nifty Thrifty quilt, so I may still be cutting squares this time next week.

On the other hand, I received a pile of beautiful hand dyed scraps – just under a pound of them, so those get added to my total.

I think all I did last week was press the ten 9-patches for the Green Disappearing 9-Patch. I didn’t even cut them. Needless to say that means no fabric out – or in for that matter. In fact other than groceries, my ‘big’ purchase was Books 1 – 7 of the Outlander series for my Kindle when it was on sale for $1.99.

So here’s the report — same as last week.

What’s On My Design Wall

A week’s vacation where we stayed at home and I managed to get 10 very large 9-patches made, but not pressed.  That’s all on the quilting front. I didn’t even get any squares for the quilt back cut. Needless to say, I didn’t bother with a stash report yesterday — nothing in nothing out.

So what did I get done?  The house is clean. The laundry is nearly caught up. I fed a crew of 10 Saturday before last and 11 this past Saturday and ALL of the brush is hauled off!

My husband has spent the last two summers working on the back yard, reclaiming it from the jungle it had become.  This summer alone we hauled off 7 loads – a F250 with a 5′ x 8′ flatbed trailer – of brush.  Now we get to work on rebuilding it.  Primarily seeding it so it is easier to care for. You should be able to click on the picture below to see the yard before and after.

I hope this week to get back to the sewing machine.  I have a quilt to finish, backings to make and quilts to quilt!

Stash Report

It’s been a long week with no sewing. I may have gotten one shirt cut for the quilt backs I’m working on, but I’m not sure. On the other hand the house is clean (my office/studio excluded), 4 very large piles of brush were hauled off yesterday and I managed to get everyone fed who came to help.

As for that sheet that I was eyeing last week…I completely forgot to go get it on Monday when it was on sale. Although the non-sale price was good for the amount of fabric I could harvest with little work, it didn’t really go with any of my quilt tops ready for a backing — or it wasn’t big enough.

Simple report this week,  nothing in, nothing out.

Stash Report

I have a quilt top so I have yardage to report as used! I’ll save the quilt top for tomorrow’s Design Wall post, but I’ll show the backing I’m now working on.

Yes, more shirt fabric. I’m cutting 9″ squares to piece into backings for the 3 DP9 quilts and need 320 of them! I can sometimes get 2 squares from a long sleeve depending on how big the shirt was. This is a stack of 21 squares. At this point there’s not much left in the shirts, but I’m not quite ready to cut them into strips. While I’m cutting these squares, I am cutting more tumblers.

I briefly thought about buying this sheet set at Savers, but since I wasn’t sure I had a quilt top it would work wiith as a backing and linens are 40% off on Monday…

Stash Report

100tumblers

Another week where nothing has changed on the stash report — but I’m OK with that as I have half of the Red Disappearing 9-Patch quilt top sewn together. No or little ran is forcasted for this coming week so I expect daylight hours after work will be spent chipping the brush as the carburetor was replaced yesterday. But even if I only spend 15 minutes each day, I should be able to finish it — and stitching pairs of tumblers from what I have cut out.
