Sunday Stash Report

It has been a busy couple of weeks for me. My day job is at Macy's and needless to say it has been a bit crazy. Not too much sewing getting done, so no change in the Stash Report. Working a little bit at a time on my Pumpkins and started Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery quilt. Pumpkins below. Can you see the couple of  blocks that needs to be changed??  I ended up have to do a bit of unsewing to get the top looking they way I wanted. 



I pulled all of my red squares and strips from my stash, for the first step in the mystery quilt-red 4-patches. I have 40 complete with only 200 more to go. I am already behind by two more steps- next up blue/neutral half square triangles and green chevron units/half square triangles. Will be pulling fabrics today for both.



I usually have a hard time keeping up in December with completing the different units for the Mystery quilt, but come January I can usually get it finished. Below are current stash reduction numbers. Hoping for one more finish by the end of the year! Have a great week!

Used this week: 0 yards.
Used YTD:  81 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards
Purchased YTD: 39 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 42yards.

Happy October!

Work has started on the second pumpkin quilt. This one by Bonnie Hunter and featured in the Sept/Oct 2017 issue of  Quiltmaker Magazine.



I am starting off with string piecing 49 pumpkin blocks, so I have cut a bunch of strips that are 1"-2" wide, and will be sewing them to the foundations.


I am going to try to make 10 a day this week and be finished with this first part by the weekend. Wish me luck! Have a great week and Happy Sewing!

Sunday Stash Report

I have been a little out of action for the last couple of weeks due to Surgery that happened on August 7. I had spine surgery to replace a couple of disks in my neck that were pinching some nerves. It was very successful, and I am well on my way to recovery. Back to getting some sewing done and yes, a finish to report. Antique Rose Star below, finished and looking good! I will be off work until September 10th, so hope to get a little more sewing time in and a few more finishes under my belt.

Antique Rose Star

A trip to Rosie's, yielded the fabrics below. First, from the sale room the perfect backing for Antique Rose Star, and I got a yard free! 5 yards for the price of 4, and on sale.


Next up a pink for the inner border and possibly binding, and a couple of fabrics to help complete the tree table runners-my next project,

July is flying by and August will be here this week!

Progress on the Antique Rose Star. I am still cutting more blocks from my scraps and trying to use up what I have. I am finding that I may need a few more browns to complete.


Four more blocks are almost complete. Will be cutting a more for the side units and then see if I have enough, Still not sure how big I want this one to be.

Happy Sewing!

Design Wall Monday

This week on my Design Wall is Antique Rose Star. Below are two completed blocks. They remain in halves until all blocks are done and ready to sew into a top. I am using up all the leftover fabrics from my first Dear Jane Quilt- so pink and brown. Trying to use up the stash! The background has been in my stash for awhile so nice to use it up too.


Below are pieces ready to cut and sew. This pattern uses a template from Marti Michell called Kite and Crown. I am making mine with the 2"version. It looks like there are a lot of set in seams, but with the technique I learned, there are NO set in seams and it sews up in a flash.


I decided to sew up a bunch of units and then make up the blocks. So lots of combinations to choose from. I am starting with 12 blocks and then will see where it goes after that.

Have a great week and a Happy 4th of July!
Happy Birthday America!!

This week on my wall will be the last of the DJ Triangles. Hope to have all complete by Sunday and then start putting rows together! Eight more to go.


During Retreat, there were many great little gifts given out by all the ladies. Very cute pincushions, a trash bag to hang in the car (in the shoe fabric), fabric strips, 5"squares and a charm pack. A photo card with post it notes-Picture from last year's retreat, and many other fun little trinkets.


 I gave out the Mug Rug below. These were fast and fun, the bindings were the most time consuming part, as I had to make 26 of these!


There were also some of us who made the cute cat block below. These were all raffled off and Bonnie was the winner. This cat quilt will be a future UFO for me!

Have a great week and Happy Sewing!
