Sunday Stash Report

 I have finishes to report! First is Hugs and Kisses from Missouri Star Quilts. This finishes at 24" and was perfict for my kitchen table.


Next up, two more table runners. I needed a few more valentines decorations for my house. These will be quilted this week and find a home on a couple of tables.

Added to the stash this week were a couple of purchases from the Quilt and Craft Festival I attended on Thursday. It was super busy that day and hard to get into the booths, but I did find some pinks that I needed to finish the tabler runners above.


Also purchased was this cute kit from Lori Smith. I love her designs and have another kit that I need to get to at some point!


Below is updated numbers for the Stash! Did not do too much damage at the Quilt and Craft Festival.

Used this week: 7 yards.
Used YTD: 24 yards.
Purchased this week: 3 yards.
Purchased YTD: 4 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 20 yards.

The rest of my day to day will be watching Football, how about you. Who are you rooting for?

Design Wall

 


On my Design wall is a small valentines project. This pattern is from Missouri Star Quilts and finishes at 24 inches. It is made from one charm pack, with extra yardage needed for backing and binding. This will be a table topper for our kitchen table, and is also one of my UFO's. After all the work on Chilhowie Christmas, I needed a small project and quick finish! I am also continuing to work on Modern Christmas, but am still on the checkerboard round. Hope to get back to it later this week.
Happy Sewing!

Stash Report

 

Chilhowie Christmas

A finish this week, Chilhowie is done and I love how it turned out. I did have to fix one block where the pieces were turned the wrong way. I thought about leaving it, but knew it would bug me. Backing will be put together next, I am using up scrappy christmas fabric.

Nice usage from this quilt! And no purchases this week, and hope to keep it that way. But no guarantee's, as we are attending the Quilting and Craft Expo at the Fairgrounds on Thursday. I will have to be strong.

Used this week: 14 yards.
Used YTD: 17 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards.
Purchased YTD: 1 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 16 yards.

Enjoy your week!

Chilhowie Christmas

This week I am still working on Chilhowie and Modern Christmas. It seems I always have at least two projects going at once. Hope to get Chilhowie finished this week, only one more border to go.

Modern Christmas

Modern Christmas is coming along. Next round is a checkerboard border. It is looking good so far. This quilt is big, finishing at 96x96 and I have a set of custom quilting patterns for it. Looking forward to the quilting part. Enjoy your week!

Sunday Stash Report

 


My first finish for 2023 and the first UFO finish! This was a kit purchased on our trip to Alaska last summer and will be a gift for the couple that we stayed with. It will be on of the next up to quilt in my quilting que.


A small add to the stash was a yard of this green, needed for Modern Christmas, which is in progress. I had a small amout and was able to match it exactly with a trip to 35th Avenue fabrics. I considered myself very lucky to have found more of this fabric!

Used this week: 3 yards.
Used YTD: 3 yards.
Purchased this week: 1 yards.
Purchased YTD: 1 yards.
