Sunday Stash – Homecoming

Lots of stuff going on this week! I finished a smaller charity quilt using panels from The Lorax children’s book, and two storage bags for recent finishes.  On top of that, I also finished the Quilt of Valor.  I forgot to take pictures of it before taking it to guild for donation, so here’s me showing it at the meeting this morning. Pattern was inspired by Cozy Quilt “Long May She Wave“, which I bought but ultimately didn’t use because I don’t like the tube strip method for HSTs, so I changed the size of the HSTs and made them a different way AND changed the star in the corner, all like an irritating recipe reviewer who never follows the directions and then criticizes the food.

Long May She Wave- Quilt of Valor

In other exciting news, my Round Robin quilt top came home! I’m about halfway done quilting it because I was so excited I went right ahead and started on it.  I added the bird in the center because Sally so nicely sent extra applique birds from her round, and it really brought the design together.

  1. Love the flag quilt. I don’t like the strip tube method either, incredible waste of fabric and time. Nice of you to donate 5 fat quarters to the grand Quilto prize basket :-). Glad your round robin is home it certainly looks like it was worth the wait and the adding the bird to the center definitely brings it together. I will be interested to see how you quilt it.

  2. I just finished listening to your podcast of the 4th and had to let you know that when you mentioned that you were working on a book (I don’t think I heard you mention that before), my mind screamed “A BOOK!!” Wow! You are my idol. I can’t wait to hear more about it. I am in awe of all you accomplish. And, thanks for the overview of a typical day. It wasn’t at all boring and reminded me of how much time I tend to waste on the computer doing nothing of value. I’m off to do some quilting!

  3. What a great patriotic quilt! And the round robin quilt is fabulous – aren’t you glad it turned out so well? I would be a nervous wreck waiting for a round robin to come back in case I didn’t like it. And I just wanted to say how cute you look too!
