Stash Report

Yes, the numbers are up again and I’m still not counting anything out.  But next week I’ll be able to count all of the fabric for the graduation quilt, including the backing (and binding?) as I’m quilting it on Thursday afternoon. Nothing like a date with the long arm to finish up a quilt. The following week I’ll use a good bit of the orange fabric I purchase last week as the backing of Orca Bay as I have another date with the longarm.

Stash Report

I haven’t done a stash report in a while simply because the numbers haven’t changed. I knew the numbers would change this week, I simply had no idea by how much.

The border fabric for the graduation quilt was finally purchased, but I haven’t finished the top yet. This was anticipated. What was completely unexpected was the generous gift of my friend’s scraps. Over 35 pounds!  For one of my future quilts I need a length of red fabric and I found it in the boxes. So, that quilt will move up on my list.

Stash Report

The primary thing I’ve been working on this past week is the Stars.  All of that a fabric will get counted when the top is complete — which at this rate will be August 2016, not August 2015 — but I’m having fun picking out fabrics from my scraps.  I might have fabric to report next week.  I’m gearing up, at least in my head to quilt my Orca Bay.

I’m considering quilting it in concentric circles — but I’m not sure there is enough space on my sewing machine. I’m confident there is on the treadle, but I’m equally confident that I’m not coordinated enough to treadle, stitch a smooth curve and wrestle a large quilt at the same time. It almost makes me want to see about getting the motor rewired just to try.

I have fabric to report as used this week.  The sashing and cornerstones for the red, white & blue samplers and the bit used for the Boston Common layout of Star Struck.

Stash Report

A year or so ago I picked my sister up from work and was surprised at the number of thrift shops in the neighborhood. I made a note to visit them and yesterday, with it being such a gorgeous day, I wanted out of the house and decided it was time.  Except, apparently they weren’t where I thought they were – which is a good thing for my stash report.

No fabric in and no countable fabric out.  Perhaps next week.  I’ve been working on the graduation quilt, ok, that won’t be done next week, but I pulled out a couple of sets of blocks and I’m in the process of setting them together.

Stash Report / February Recap

gradquilt-pieces

 

A whole lot of fabric passed under my needle this past week – the majority of it at the retreat Friday and Saturday. Most of the units needed for the blocks for the graduation quilt  are made.  I still need all of the HST in both sizes and the triangle in a square units for the outer blocks. That pile in the top right corner is the start of the block assembly.

350 Blocks Report at Prairie Moon Quilts

I reported 23 blocks.  I counted the Orca Bay pieced border as 10 and I finished 13 stars.

I have nothing to show for the UFO Parade at 52 Quilts in 52 Weeks. Orca Bay only made it to the top stage.

Stash Report

orca-pieced borders

Lots of fabric passed under my needle this past week, but I didn’t get the borders attached to Orca Bay, so no fabric used. My only purchase was two batts, one for Orca Bay and one for a twin bed quilt I want/need to make after I finish the graduation quilt.

Most of the fabric for Orca Bay is counted already, but I’m wondering now if I’ll have time to quilt it Friday morning?

Stash Report

Yesterday was the day that I purchased the background fabric for my niece’s graduation quilt. 6 yards of Black Magic — a deep double dyed black that seems to resist gathering every piece of dust, dirt, fuzz and cat hair in the greater metropolitan area.  Which is good given that Butterscotch decided to take a nap on it.

The three bright FQs are my reward for knocking off 3 of the 10 projects on my Get ’em Done list (Scrappy Trips, Jared Takes a Wife and the Christmas BOM quilt top). Naturally I picked fabrics which will go into the graduation quilt.

I’m still piecing on the Orca Bay border, so officially no fabric was used this week.  Part of me says put up Orca Bay and get busy on the graduation quilt, but I think I’ll just start the graduation quilt with the black and bright 4-patches as my leader/enders.  Of course this means I’ll finally have to clear the cutting board off so I can cut fabric….

Stash Report

I’m in quilt assembly mode, so there’s been no new fabric used and I haven’t bought any fabric so my numbers aren’t changing. But that’s OK. I hope to have a finished top before too long.

Stash Report

Some piecing this week, but no fabric which I can count. The Star-A-Day quilt will all get counted when I finish the top in August (I’m thinking positively) and when I started Orca Bay I was counting as I went, but think I changed processes midstream. Even if I did, I won’t count what’s left until I finish the top.

I’m setting this to auto post as I’m not sure when I’ll get the computers hooked backup. We are going to do the desk and computer swap one more time, hopefully getting it right this time.
