Sunday Stash Report

This week has been a hot one in San Diego and not much change in the Stash. A small finish for this week, my August UFO, a pattern called Drop from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. It finishes at 15x17.



Just a small purchase from Rosie's Calico Cupboard, some stripes for the Lucy Boston Quilt I am slowly working on. Below are my latest blocks. They are all hand sewn, which I never thought I would be hand sewing a quilt! But I do enjoy picking out the fabrics and fussy cutting to see what design I can come up with. It is also a great project to take on the road.



Only a slight change in the numbers this week. Check back next week, when I hope to have my Winston Ways finally done. Also see other reports at Patchwork Times. Have a great week!

Used this week: 1.5 yards.
Used YTD: 118.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 1 yards.
Purchased YTD: 105.0 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 13.5 yards.

Design Wall

This week I am visiting family in Angeles Camp, up in the Sierra Foothills. I brought along my August UFO, Drop, a mini quilt that takes 2.5" squares.  I did not bring my Janome this time so I am using Mom's Bernette.



Below are some of the finished blocks, which finish at 2.5"and the centers that finish at 1.5"


This should finish up fast, and then I will be on to one of the 2 Bonnie Hunter Quilts left to finish this year, Midnight Flight and Lazy Sunday. Or I might get back to the other two BOM's that are needing some attention. Enjoy the rest of your week and check out more Design Walls at Patchwork Times.

Sunday Stash Report

I finally get a little stash relief, with a finish this week! The last border for Freedom Rings was sewn in place last night. This quilt is by Paula Barnes and was a block of the month in 2012. It is one of three block of the month quilts that I hope to finish this year. I enjoyed making all the star blocks and most of them were pretty easy.



Back in the black with another finish on the horizon! Have a great week and check out more at Patchwork Times,

Used this week: 18.0 yards.
Used YTD: 117 yards.

Design Wall

This week finds two projects on the design wall. Freedom Rings below is in the final stages of assembly and hope to be complete by the end of the week. Just need to find a bit of sewing time!


Winston Ways is also on the Design floor, where I am busy sewing together the rows and have borders all ready to go! Below are just a few of the 30 blocks in this quilt.


If that is not enough, my next UFO up is #6, which is a mini! Hooray! I might have a chance to get it done this month.

Happy August and stay cool doing what we love! Sewing!

Sunday Stash Report

My trip to Montana yielded quite a few adds to the stash. There are some great quilt shops up north!
Our first stop was Superior Threads in St. George Utah. I was hopping to pick up some cones of thread for my Longarm, but didn't realize the thread warehouse was closed on Saturdays. All was not lost, as the fabric store was open!

Superior Quilt Shop

Our next stop was in Seeley Lake at Deer Country Quilts. This shop is huge and in a beautiful rustic building. The owner Pam Rose is in the process of selling the building and quilt shop and is hoping to find a quilter that wants to buy.

Deer Country Quilts
On to Kalispell and The Quilt Gallery, where I picked up the great National Parks Fabrics below. The Quilt Gallery not only has lots of fabric and notions, but they also have many finished quilts for sale.



National Parks Fabric
I also picked up the pattern below called Big Sky Montana Memories- I love the feathered Star!


In search of the National Parks Quilt below, I also meet Gwen Carreon owner of
 Gwen Carreon Designs. She lives and works out of her home in Whitefish, Montana and has some beautiful applique designs. Check out her website above. She was also clearing out some great batik fabrics, so found a few below to take home with me.




Last stop on this trip was in downtown Whitefish at Whitefish Quilts. This is not only a quilt shop, but also a gift shop with all things Montana. It was fun to browse through and I picked up a kit below and a Glacier National Park Quilt block. This is a series of quilt blocks by Olde America Antiques to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks. I am hoping to collect a few more from all the parks that I have visited.


No finishes this week- only adds! This has put me in the red for the year, but a couple of finishes are on the horizon!

Used this week: 0 yards.
Used YTD: 99 yards.
Purchased this week: 27.0 yards.
Purchased YTD: 77.0 yards.
