The Past Few Days


On Saturday, it was International Quilt Day. Time to hang out a few quilts … It was a bit windy and rainy, but all of the quilts are washable!! And they actually didn’t get too wet!


Zoom quilting with my sister and one cousin dropped in for a chat! Both my sister and I worked on quilting our quilts. In the afternoon, I played with green fabric. I have a green table topper / runner challenge to meet this month. On the right is a picture of the back … Amazingly, I managed to finish it this evening!

Design Wall


Would you believe that I’m NOT piecing anything at the moment? What is wrong??? I guess I’m just concentrating on getting some UFOs done. However, I have plans for an Island Batik project and haven’t even pulled fabric for it yet … and I can’t tell you what it’s going to be, because it’s a secret!


SAHRR is in the process of being quilted!!!

Stash Report

I finished the T-shirt quilt. Between the backing, the hanging sleeve and the binding, I used over 12 yards of fabric!

You can read more about this quilt HERE.

  • Fabric Used this week      12   yards
  • Fabric Used this year:       30.5 yards
  • Fabric Bought this week:  0  yards
  • Fabric Added this year:      9 yards  (my husbands amounts as well)
  • Net Fabric used                  21.5 yards 
  • Husband’s purchases:  0 yards (which are added into my total amount of Fabric added this year). For those of you who don’t know … my husband often buys more fabric than I do … so, I’m keeping track! Unfortunately, he doesn’t sew!

Stitchin’ Time

I’m aiming for at least 30 minutes a day.

I have stitched for over 30 minutes each day

  • January – February –  59 / 59
  • March – 21 / 21
  • Percentage = 100 %

  2. Hi Gail! Nothing in progress on your design wall?! What? I took down my SAHRR quilt top to work on it this weekend and promptly put up the Pieces From the Past blocks that needs to be a quilt top by the end of the month. You have lots of fun things coming up and you are keeping that to-do list nice and full. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Actually, I do have my Speed Dating Improv on the design wall … I forgot about it … but at the moment there’s nothing else new to put up there … yet! I do want to get the SAHRR quilted before I delve into anything else! 🙂

  3. Yay for finishing some UFOs. That always feels good, doesn’t it? Looking forward to seeing your quilted SAHRR. Connie said mine is done, so I hope to pick it up this week so I can get it bound before the 29th.
