Happy New Year


A Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to all!

Sunday Stash Report

Just in time for the last Stash Report of 2018. My feathered star quilt is finished! I am very happy at how it turned out. Not sure if I will do another quilt using Jodi Barrows Square in a Square technique, there is quite a bit of waste with all the cutting involved, and you have to be very careful how you are cutting- ask me how I know. Several of the center blocks had to be made twice because of my cutting errors!

Feathered Star
A trip to Memory Lane on Saturday, resulted in the purchases below. More corals and blues for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt. Sandi also brought me a few more to use. Hopefully we will have a enough to complete this quilt. The last few clues are coming fast and I have a lot of catch up to do!


Also purchased were the neutral below and a great Martini fabric that I will be using for a backing.




Here are the final numbers for 2017. Almost 75 yards used, but too much added. I think my goal for 2018 will be to use up 100 yards and to keep the purchases to a minimum!

Used this week: 15 yards.
Used YTD:  196.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 6 yards.
Purchased YTD: 123.0 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 73.5 yards.

Happy New Year! Here's to a happy and healthy 2018! Keep on Stitching!

Stash Report

No finishes yet. Still working on the feathered star, but making progress. 

A trip to Rosie's with Sandi, yielded the fabrics below for On Ringo Lake, Bonnie Hunter's Mystery quilt. The first clue is in progress- nine patches, and second clue will await the new ruler that Sandi picked up for me. Looking forward to using it, as it looks like it will save a step in putting together the flying geese units that are up next.

A finish of sorts this week, the blocks for our guild's mystery quilt were completed. I will be awaiting the next clue at our January meeting.




Nothing used this week, but hope to make a dent soon.

Used this week: 9.5 yards.
Used YTD:  181.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 10 yards.
Purchased YTD: 117.0 yards.

Have a great week and happy sewing!

Design Wall Monday

Happy Thanksgiving Week!

On my design wall this week are the Feathered Star project along with the Sunshine Mystery. Why just work on one quilt when you can work on two.  The feathered star is my UFO for November, so trying to get it finished up. After that only one more UFO to go for the year.

Also starting soon is Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery quilt. The first clue will be published the day after Thanksgiving. If you have not participated in one of her mysteries, I highly recommend it. I have never been disappointed with any of her designs, and her color choices are great. Check it out on her blog. It is called " On Ringo Lake"  Below are fabrics that I have pulled from my stash. Will need a few more of the melon tones. The browns are a little darker than the photo, and I had a lot of those. May need a few more of the turquoise colors.





Looking forward to the first clue, but I have plenty to keep me busy this week! Have a great week!

Sunday Stash Report

November is flying by and Thanksgiving and the Holidays are here!!
I work a full time job in retail, so this time of year leaves me limited time for sewing. Nothing finished this week but continuing progress on my feathered star. I was going to stop at 6 blocks, each one finishes at 24 inches, but decided to make it square. So I have 3 more cut out and ready to sew and will be working on them this week.


I am also working on our Guild's Mystery Quilt. I have the first clue finished. Mine will be in reds/neutral with a Christmas theme.


Below are numbers for the week-no changes yet!

Used this week: 9.5 yards.
Used YTD:  181.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards.
Purchased YTD: 107.0 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 74.5 yards.

Have a great week!!

Sunday Stash Report

A finish this week! A quick easy quilt for one of my great nephews. Hope to have this one quilted and mailed off soon, along with the Baby Seuss quilt for his new little sister.  This was a fun quilt to put together and is called Takeoff, pattern by Renae Lindgren. Of course it screams for an airplane quilting pattern.


Working on the feathered star blocks today. Maybe I will have one to show tomorrow on my Design Wall. Just a little change in the usage this week. The year is winding down and I have two more finishes in the works.

Used this week: 9.5 yards.
Used YTD:  181.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards.
