Stash Report

Yes, I did get this charity quilt finished, but it was the only sewing I did all week. This is headed for the longarm and will be quilted up this coming week.

 My Fairy Duster quilt is coming along slowly. There are 92 friendship star blocks to make for the blocks and borders. They finish at 3". I have cut out most of them with the Accquilt- which is making it much easier. Two of the large paper-peiced blocks are done and two more cut out and ready to sew.  Much work to be done on this one!

Nothing purchased this week.

 Used this week: 10 yards.
Used YTD: 107.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 0yards.
Purchased YTD: 63 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 44.5 yards.

Enjoy your week!

Happy May Day!

This is a quilt I have been working on during my Tuesday Sewing group. It was a kit purchased a long time ago and will be for charity. Hope to finish it up this week as I only have the borders to go.
Stay tuned.....

Stash Report


Vintage Valentine

Yes, I have finally finished Vintage Valentine! This took 13 months to complete as a BOM from Stitchin Heaven. I really enjoyed all the hand applique, but am ready to take a break from such a large project.

Isn't this Truck super cute? Sandi made this one for me, I did the quilting and binding and it is all ready for the 4th of July.

Above is my add for the week. Fabrics for the Allisyn's Wondered Land Quilt. The tow in the middle contrast more than what shows up in the photo. These should be fun to work with.

Numbers for this week:

 Used this week:  20 yards.
Used YTD: 97.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 12.0 yards.
Purchased YTD: 63 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 34.5 yards.

Have a great week!

This is going to be one of my next projects, Judy Niemeyer's Allisyn's Wondered Land. I will be using these colors as my inspriation, more of a fall look. The original quilt is in black/white/red. I already have the pattern and I am in the process of finding fabrics.

Allisyn's Wondered Land in Red/white/Black

In the meantime, I am back to working on Fairy Duster. This was a BOM purchased in 2008. Yes a very old UFO! This will help refresh my paper piecing skills.

As always, a lot going on in my sewing room!
Have a great week!

Sunday Stash Report


We had a wonderful trip last week to Canyon de Chelly, where we took a jeep tour into the canyon. We saw many ruins along the canyon walls and pictographs from th Anasazi. Navajo Indians still live in the canyon during the summer.


We also stopped at the historic Hubble Trading Post, which was a fascinating place. There is a wonderful visitor center that tells the story of the importance of the Trading posts in the Southwest.

Of course, our trip was not complete without a stop at my favorite quilt store in this area,

On my design wall this week is Spooktacular Stars. This is a small quilt and hopefully will be finished up pretty quickly. Next up will be finishing Vintage Valentine. I will be looking for some fabrics for the sashing and border. I am not all that happy with the ones that came with the BOM. Hopefully I can find something a little closer to the original.

Enjoy the rest of the week!
