Stash Report - Week 24

Well, I didn't do a lot of sewing this week, but I did finish the rest of my present for the graduate.  Made the matching pillowcases, put a personal label on the quilt, wrapped it and I'm all ready for the party later today.

Fabric Added - 0 yards
Fabric Used -  2 yards
Fabric Added YTD - 17.25 yards
Fabric Used YTD - 35.963 yards
Net busted for 2012 - 18.713 yards

Here are the 2 pillowcases to go with her quilt .  Since she's in love with anything monogrammed, I think she will like these.

At the last minute, I decided to include her graduation picture as part of the label on the back.

 Jump on over to Judy's blog. and see what others did this week.

Now it's back to finishing my trilogy of The Hunger Games.  I just finished reading book #2 of the Hunger Games series "Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins and I really enjoyed it.  This one went so much faster because you know the characters so well after reading the first book, and it draws you in more quickly. This one has a lot of twists and turns that I was not expecting.  Can't wait to start #3.  Has anyone read the books and seen the movie?  How do they compare to each other?


  1. What an awesome gift!! The quilt label is the best. I really need a lesson on how to make labels.
    I hope you capture a picture of her face when she opens that package.

  2. Beautiful quilt. Nice touch on adding the photo. Very sweet.

    The movie did a fairly good job. It isn't as good as the book. But I think the movie would have been 5 hours long to include everything.

  3. What a wonderful gift. She's going to love that quilt. Congrats on your numbers. They're good too!

  4. I think this is one of my favorite quilts of yours. It's just so happy, and the fabrics are perfect together. Good job. She'll be so excited.

  5. Ooooohhhh! Love the quilt and those pillowcases are perfect!!! She's going to love it!!! Great idea to have them monogrammed :*)

    I've listened to the first two books, and I'm maybe a quarter of the way through Mockingjay, the third. We also went to see the movie. I loved it! As Amy said, it was not quite as good as the book and some things were either left out or changed in subtle ways. There were a few places that I would have been lost if I hadn't read the book first. But overall, we really enjoyed it and will definitely go to see the next one when it comes out.

  6. Very pretty!! What a happy quilt! I loved all three books and the movie!

  7. The quilt and pillowcases turned out beautifully! I'm sure she will love it!!
