Sunday Stash Report and UFO Finish

This week I have a finish to report! 
I have finished the Mystery Quilt from Karen Sievert at the Nifty Needle. This was a class at Road to California Quilt show in 2013. It is a very big quilt, finishing at 90x104, but the pieces were pretty big to work with and it did finish up quickly once I got back to it!

I did purchase a bit to add to the stash, but for the most part have stayed out of the Quilt shops this week. That is about to change with the San Diego Quilt Show coming up next week. I will be attending Pre-view night on Wednesday, which is always the best night to go. No crowds and all the vendors are open to shop!

Here are the numbers for this week:

Used this week: 20.0 yards.
Used Year to date: 114.25 yards
Purchased this week: 2.0 yards.
Purchased Year to date: 71.0 yards.
Net Fabric Used in 2014: 43.25 yards.

Design Wall Monday

This week I will be working on my August UFO- only two more weeks to finish!

Expect the Unexpected.

This was a Mystery Quilt from Road to California Quilt Show in 2013. Time to get it done!

Here are the two finished blocks. I have 14 more of each block to go, but have all the pieces cut out. This is a pretty big quilt, 90x104, large enough for a Queen bed. It should go fast, once I get going on it.

See what everyone else is working on this week at Patchwork Times.

Sunday Stash Report

Hi All!
It has been awhile since my last post, but I have two finishes to report. First up is Equinox my UFO for July. This was a fun quilt from Cozy Quilts using a 2.5' Bali Pop. 


Second up are the applique block of the month from Temecula Quilt Company. They were designed by Lori Smith. I rerally enjoyed working on these appliques blocks and I will have to say my applique work is getting better every day. Sandi over at Kwiltnkats donated the black fabric for the border. (Thanks Sandi!)

I have managed to stay out of the Quilt shops lately, so nothing to add for the last couple of weeks.Here are the updated numbers:

Used this week: 14.25 yards.

Used Year to date: 108.50 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards.
Purchased Year to date: 69.0 yards.
Net Fabric Used in 2014: 39.5 yards.
