Sunday Stash - Panels and Blocks

I’m gearing up for my retreat in a week and a half, and have been busy assembling project groups and boxes and whatnot.  I think the most daunting is the collection of “stuff” for fabric postcards, but here’s hoping I remember to pack the different colored thread for it!

When I haven’t been making piles of stuff, I’ve been working on my Lonestar blocks from Kimberly Einmo’s class on Saturday. She’s a lovely, energetic teacher and I love her pattern writing.  I also about two books, a specialty ruler, AND a pressing gadget.  I rarely buy books and gadgets, so you know she’s good! I’ve managed to make the units for 6 out of 9 star blocks, but haven’t finalized my layout yet.

I also made a pillowcase and finished my 3rd panel quilt project (three more are going into the aforementioned postcard projects!) Woohoo!

  • Used this Week: 6.75 yards
    • 5 yd for Jim Shore Christmas Quilt
    • 1 yd for a pillowcase
    • 0.75 yd for sewing machine mat and a pouch
  • Used year to Date: 271.75 yards
  • Added this Week: 3.25 yards
    • 3.25 yd of jelly roll and binding fabric I forgot to log a few weeks ago
  • Net Used for 2014: 177 yards
  • YTD Used for Charity: 102.5 yards (38% of total used)

  1. You are on a panel quilt roll! I’m looking forward to learning more about the Lonestar project you’re working on and what magical ruler managed to sway you into purchasing it!

  2. thanks for your answers re panels. It is interesting to hear your thoughts. I have made a few over time. The major hassle I have with them is that they can be off grain and can be crooked. Your idea of making the blocks wonky deliberately would be a way of overcoming that. :) Looking forward to seeing your photos.

  3. Hope you have a great retreat, they can be so much fun with many wild stories told on retreat and many more about the retreat after the fact. Looking forward to hearing about all that you achieve while you are away.
