Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Stash Report

No new fabric came in the house this week and there was a trip to a LQS.  The centers for my Dresden Plates really need to be round, so I tracked down Bigger Perfect Circles.  They are a heat-resistant plastic, so I’m able to prepare the center circles so they are nice and smooth.

I ran a running stitch along the edge of the circle and then pulled it up with the template in side.  Then I “painted” the turned under edge with a bit of starch before heat setting the crease.  It works really well.  Here’s a picture of the back of my circles:

On another note,  Three Sister’s Choice has definitely been given the Quality Control Cat stamp of approval.  Yesterday morning I was napping in the recliner when the phone rang.  When I jumped up the quilt ended up on the floor.  When I wandered back into the room a couple of hours later Seven was napping on the quilt.  She did NOT want to give it up.  I may just have to make her a quilt of her own.

As for the stash usage, I used about 5/8 yard on the Dresden Plates — now if I can get them appliquéd in the next couple of days so I can start quilting.

  1. he he he…even if you make Seven her own quilt, she’ll probably want the one you have, lol.
