Sunday Stash – Feb. 25, ’18

Summer Envy is complete! Including label and binding!  The quilting was pretty quick – just an easy swirl. I used 6 ½ bobbins of thread and while watching 7 episodes of “When Calls the Heart” on Netflix.  Season 3 is now available in Canada.  And – just for the non-Canadians reading my blog who have watched this series: the Mounties (also called RCMP: Royal Canadian Mounted Police) do NOT wear their red serge outfits for normal work, only for special ceremonies.



The binding is the left-over trimmings from the back of “On Ringo Lake.”  It is a perfect match!  (Probably because it’s from the same fabric line! ~grin~ )

PHD in 2018 Update

On Ringo Lake and Summer Envy were both completed this week!  WhooHoo!!!  That makes for a total of 12 UFOs completed this year.  And 2 big quilts this week! (Yes, I did complete a retreat bag, but that was started this year, so it’s not a UFO and doesn’t count towards my PHD in 2018!)

Image result for images fabric stash clip artI went shopping yesterday … just for some med-heavy weight interfacing.  I’m out and there’s a sale on.  Of course, I had to check what else is in the store and ended up buying 1 ½ yd of flannel for backing and ½ yd for accent.  This is for a baby quilt that I NEED to make.  I hope the baby is a girl, ’cause I bought pink.  If the baby turns out to be a boy, I will have to go shopping again, uh, shop my stash! Image result for Free smiley Clip Art

  2. You are knocking your goals out of the park! Good for you. I, too, am working to get to a place where things are current and for fun, not trying to finish up those darn UFOs.


    • I know … however, I do want to finish each UFO – otherwise they would have been given away! I just can’t have so many hanging around! So I’m determined to knock down the number that I have. Happy Quilting!


    • Well, Kate – you do have 10 months left to work on YOUR PHD in 2018!! At least you are doing some sewing … that is good! Keep up with your 15 min / day and you’ll be amazed at what you get done! Happy quilting!


  3. It’s beautiful! I’m so impressed that you have completed 12 UFOs already and we’re not even a full two months into the year!


  4. Very pretty quilt. I am almost finished watching Season 3 of When Calls the Heart. I discovered that my library has season 4 on DVD. I am waiting for this as there are people ahead of me.
