Stash Report - Week#3-2016

This week I finished making a colorful rod sleeve for the back of "Not So Easy Street" in preparation for our upcoming quilt show in March.  I just need to make the label and apply it and it will be all done. There are still 2 more labels to make and one more quilt to finish quilting and binding and I should be ready.

I decided to use more of my leftover scraps to piece together the sleeve.  It took a little more time, but since the backing was all pieced from scraps too, I though it was fitting.  Here's what it looks like laying on the edge of my dining room table.  It doesn't look like almost 100 inches does it, but I assure you it seemed like 300 inches. This brought my totals up a tiny bit in the used column.

  1. congrats on using more of the leftover scraps. Every bit counts! :)

  2. I like your sleeve! And your numbers. Have a good week!

  3. When and where is your quilt show? Close enough for a day trip from Indy?

  4. I *love* that you named this quilt 'Not So Easy Street' -- it made me smile (though I'm sure it wasn't your intent when you chose the name)!! Glad it's near the very, very end! Great job on stash use so far this year!! :)

  5. The pieced hanging sleeve looks great with that backing. Great stash busting so far this year!
