Sunday Summation: Nov. 27 ’22

The Mystery Quilt is well on it’s way!!!

This is a super simple mystery quilt! It is my own design. I designed it for the Boundary Bay Quilt Guild, but I’m going to be sharing it with YOU as well!

This quilt will finish at 43″ x 53″

This week’s class

I will be teaching this table runner at Essem on Wednesday. I believe there is still room for one more. You can register for it HERE. This table runner will take you into the freeing world of slightly abstract and each table runner will be unique.

Stitching Stuff

Kate, from Life in Pieces, is hosting “Stitching Stuff” and the goal is to sew for at least 15 minutes a day. I use Kate’s guideline, but my personal goal is to sew for 30 minutes a day. On those “blah” days, it does motivate me to sit at my machine and 30 minutes often turns into several hours. Thank you Kate for the motivation!

Lots of stitching in the past week!

  • January – October: 258 / 303

  • Total:  285 / 331

Stash Report

Donna at Quilt Paint Create hosts a weekly linky party where you can display your stash numbers. This has really kept my stash from growing (somewhat!) Before I buy anything, I am always mindful of the fact that I need to report it on my blog … That sometimes stops me in my tracks!

The backing for this quilt used 4 yards of fabric. You can see details of this quilt HERE.

Fabric: Island Batik Citified collection, FMQ with Aurifil thread, Hobbs 80/20 batting in the middle!

But I did go shopping. I stopped in at Castle’s Sewing Centre and just HAD to buy some of their Island Batik fabrics! I bought 1 meter of each! Aren’t they just beautiful???????

  • Fabric Used since the last report    yards
  • Fabric Used this year:       90 yards
  • Fabric Bought this week:  6 yards
  • Fabric Added this year:    29.5 yards 
  • Net Fabric used:                60.5 yards

  1. Oh I missed out on last year’s Round Robin, so I hope I can join in on the next one! I’m with Brenda – the lavender background fabric is just perfect for that quilt! I hope you had a great week and thanks for joining in on Monday This and That! xx

  2. Great metrics, you are on track to have a good year on both the stash and stitching fronts. I’m glad you are going to continue the PHD for 2023, it’s been a great motivator. I may even have time this year to play with the stay at home round robin. It looks like a lot of fun.

  3. I just love that lavender background on that quilt! It really makes it sing!! Can’t wait for the 2023 SAHRR! I hope I can keep up! And I know I’ll be back for the PHD because I just don’t have time to finish up this year! I finally figured out what I was doing wrong on my IB quilt for December and am just adding the final border today. Then it will go on the quilt frame! Sew much to do and sooooo little time! Thanks for linking up with Monday Musings!
