I stuck with it this week and finished up two quilts. One had been quilted last week but needed hand finishing for the binding; once that got done, I moved onto finishing up the quilting and binding for the In My Neighborhood row-along I designed a row for over on The Stitch TV Show site. The instructions get posted this week, but there’s a sneak peak in the featured image above!
I need to make a photo day to just take pics of all these finished quilts before the flit off to their various destinations. Until then there are numbers!
- Used this past week: 11 yards
- 4.5 yd for the Neighborhood row quilt
- 6.5 yd for the Sonic Goose Quilt
- Total Used Year to Date: 280.25 yards
- YTD Used for Charity: 84.75 yards (30% of total used)
I am slowly getting back on the stash wagon and making progress on some quilts I finished quilting the one I was stuck on earlier this week, but it needs a hand finish on the binding so will get done later this coming week.
I also plowed through two donation quilts that got an easy all over pattern that didn’t require a lot of planning and agony to design, so those get chalked up in the done column, too!
It was also Saturday Sampler weekend so I picked up the three blocks for the current projects. One of these programs are wrapping up next month, so time to get thinking about layout!
- Used this past week: 8.75 yards
- 4.5 yd for the schoolyard quilt
- 4.25 yd for the Cheerful Scrap Quilt
- Total Used Year to Date: 269.25 yards
- YTD Used for Charity: 80.25 yards (30% of total used)
It’s at this point in my life I really need an narrator of sorts to do a voiceover like, “When last we saw Pam, she was stressed out.” Then pan video to me sitting in my living room still sort of stressed out. The good news is, however, the end is rather in sight (new job officially starts next Wednesday) and I just need to google some pictures of contrails to solve my latest quilting dilemma and then everything will be FINE. Yes. That’s what I’m telling myself.
It’ll be fine, right?
Of course it will. Never mind that my brain is already circling around what to make for Thanksgiving (in a month) and the time table to get everything in the oven in order to eat at noon, and whether the turkey I haven’t even bought yet will be defrosted in time. Really, it’ll be fine.
So this post is a catch up for stash reporting and WIP-ing, so really I’ve got the de-stash yardage and some pillowcases
- Used this past random amount of time: 17 yards
- 15 yd destashed
- 2 yd for 2 donation pillowcases
- Total Used Year to Date: 260.5 yards
- YTD Used for Charity: 71.5 yards (27% of total used)
I’ve been doing this little quilting podcast for seven years as of October 17, 2017! Time certainly has flown, and I wanted to host a little celebration, which of course means a giveaway!
The fine people at Windham have donated this fabulous bundle of 17 fat quarters from the new Flourish line from Mia Whittemore (who got her line produced by winning a context with Uppercase magazine – fun!), which comes in lucious purples, yellows, and botanical prints.
I would show a picture of the actual bundle, but I forgot to take a picture of it before jetting out of town, so here is Windham’s graphic and a link to ogle it on their website.
Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter the giveaway; you’ve got until midnight October 24 (US Eastern time) to enter the giveaway, and I will ship internationally!
Thanks for listening!
