Stash Report - Week 23

My stash numbers would have remained exactly the same as last week, but at the last minute, I decided the graduation quilt needed matching pillowcases, so my totals increased a bit in the Added column.  I'll  be finishing them up this week and adding a little something extra special which will make her very happy.

Fabric Added this week- 2 yards
Fabric Used this week  - 0 yards
Fabric Added YTD -  17.25
Fabric Used YTD - 33.963

Even though I did not use any of my stash this last week, I was busy quilting a bedrunner for a customer.  This was 40 " wide by 96" long and is used to cover the bottom third of a bed on top of a white bedspread.  She asked for simple motifs but wanted feathers on it someplace.  This is what I came up with.  I'm still struggling with free motion feathers, but everyone tells me it takes lots of practice to get better.

Here's the back quilting view.
Jump on over to Judy's to see what everyone else did this week.


  1. Looks great! I'm sure your customer will love it. Some days my feathers look OK, and other days not so much...but I think I am my worst critic.

    1. Cheryl, thanks for the vote of confidence. Also thanks for stopping by and commenting. I could not leave you a reply directly, since it shows you as a "no reply".

  2. I think your feathers are beautiful! Your customer will love it.

  3. I really like your combination of ruler work and feathers--sometimes the simple things (straight line ruler work) are the most striking!

  4. Love the bedrunner. Great job quilting it.

  5. Dar,
    The bedrunner is gorgeous! Your quilting brought it to life...I wouldn't worry about your feathers...they are gorgeous...wish I could do them so well.!

  6. Looks great Darlene. Your feathers look perfect to me.
