What’s Happening?

What’s happening?

I’ve been madly sewing on things I can’t show you and writing patterns to go with the quilts I’m making. But, this post is about what I CAN show you!

Piecing:

#1 Scrappy Improv Quilting

I’m working on another quilt from Kelly Young’s book “Scrappy Improv Quilting”. I’m doing it as a leader and ender with all the Secret Sewing I’m doing

#2. Secret Sewing: Island Batik

#3. Meadow Mist’s Macaroon Mystery.

I’m a bit behind on this mystery. I have the pieces all cut. Yes, it’s all reproduction blues with an off white for the background. If you LOVE mystery quilts … Cheryl’s quilts are a dream to make! You can see all the clues HERE.


Quilting: 

#1 November Island Batik project is being quilted


Stash Report

No shopping, no finishes that used stash!

  • Fabric Used this week     0 yards
  • Fabric Used this year:       99 yards
  • Fabric Bought this week: 0  yards
  • Fabric Added this year:      39.75 yards  (my husbands amounts as well)
  • Net Fabric used                  58.25 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!

While away, I managed to sew for 5 days … and for 6 days, I did not sew.

  • Oct –  10 / 10
  • Total: 265 / 278

This week’s list:

Even though I’ve been working like a mad woman in the sewing room, there is no change to my UFO list.

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!
