Sunday Stash – Big Honkin’ Quilt

Here we are on Sunday night again! I’ve just put the final stitches on the binding for one of the king-sized Christmas quilts I’ve been working on. It’s 111″ square, and hoo boy. It’s big.

I’ve got the wedding quilt basted and ready to quilt (seen in progress in this photo), but took the opportunity to quilt the king size one this morning instead, so will work my way through the wedding quilt this week. I’m still in pile-up mode – two quilts ready to quilt, and blocks to make another donation quilt – but it feels good to make some progress on big projects.

  • Used this Week: 20 yard
    • 20 yd for Christmas pinwheels king size quilts
  • Used Year to Date: 119.5 yards

  1. Oy math issues – we all have them from time to time! One of my favorite knitting podcasts, Knitmore Girls almost always has a section called “When Knitting Attacks”, which includes everything from math problems to a dog (or child) pulling needles out of yarn (or perhaps eating it?)

  2. WOW! 20 yards. That is GREAT usage for the week. I am getting two large quilts back next week and can’t wait to put those finished on my spreadsheet! I know photo taking is an issue for you, but I do love seeing your quilts when finished and can’t wait to see the big honkin’ Christmas quilt. 😉
