Stash Report and a Finish

This week found me in my sewing room at least 4 or 5 hours every day.  I was able to finish up the quilting on this chevron quilt. It is big at 94" x 112".  I did a simple echo of the design with matching thread colors.  This proved to be a bit slow  because I had to change and rethread after every three passes, but I didn't want an overall and I couldn't decide what color thread would not distract from the design.  I'm happy with it and the recipient, a young teenager hopefully will like it.

I also did a fair amount of busting the stash.  I made 5 pillowcases and 5 bindings to go with the already complete QOV tops.  This helped to lighten the weight on the shelves but I really can't see any difference in the height of the stacks. But it does give my numbers a big boost ! lol

I also added a border to Ann's pieced top.  Here it is with a border.
