A Few Finishes and Stash Report

This has been a busy week.  I was fortunate to have time to finish up a couple of my UFOs and even get started on a new project.

You might remember that I finished quilting another pastel 9-patch baby quilt and now the binding is complete.

 Also, I cleared my design wall of the long standing "My Blue Heaven", which is now quilted and bound!

This was started in a workshop in Sept. 2015 with Bonnie Hunter.   
My Blue Heaven 

One of my friends gave me a large package of assorted sampler blocks that were made by a lady who wanted them to be used for Quilts of Valor quilts.  I arranged them into two quilt tops and with added fabrics from my stash for sashings, borders and bindings; finished two quilt tops.   I have to give credit to my friend Mary for helping with one.  Thanks so much Mary.  I pieced a backing for one of them and tomorrow I hope to get it quilted.  I'd say this was a very productive week.  Hope I can keep my sewing mojo going for another good week.

Tomorrow I hope to have pictures of the two QOV tops.  I love what all this sewing does for my Stash Report! lol

Catching Up and Fabric Report


It's been a few weeks since I've posted but I finally have a little movement in the stash numbers to report.  This week I got around to quilting another baby quilt.

This is the last of 4 of the baby quilts that I made from my Leader/Ender last year.  I pulled squares from the 2.5" drawer for the pastel 9-patch blocks.

My free motion is not as good as I'd like it to be, but hopefully a baby won't mind that they are all not perfectly proportioned.  Just the binding to go and it will be done.

On the knitting front, I finished the Drops Fabel socks.  These were started at the end of January! Why it took so long, I can't say other than I've been busy with other things, I guess.

Now, I get to play with all those luscious scrappy leftover sock yarns from Carol at The Polka Dot Chicken.
