Elephant QuiltIMG_2001

Do you remember this wonderful All Star elephant quilt from “The Steam Trunk?”   Well, if you are interested, she now has kits and patterns available.


Another Finish

Yeah, I finished “Pink Hearts.”  The binding is on.  No label as I’m waiting to see who it is going to go to …IMG_2220

Two finishes this month.  That brings my total to 18 … and we’re half-way through the year. To achieve my PHD in 2018, I have 10 UFOs and the 3 quilts that I started this year that aren’t done.  I think I might be able to achieve this!!!

    • Thanks, Kathleen.

      For fabric used … I usually go back to the original pattern or EQ to see what the pattern calls for. And, I usually know how much I used for the back, so I add the 2 together. Sew .. in a way, it’s only a close estimate. It’s definitely not totally accurate. However, when I think about why I am doing the tally of fabric … it’s to see if I use up more than I buy. This year, it’s a great deal more used. 🙂

      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  3. Happy Canada Day to you too Gail. I had a finish too, last night. One of those very old ones when I was following BH using old shirts. I have one more of those….Tumalo Trail….that I hope to finish this week. I’m not so thrilled with old shirts now, but they make nice donation quilts. Enjoy our holiday even though the sky is very overcast!…..Dianne
