Sunday Stash - Prep Mode

I’m still mostly in prep mode for retreat, but I did manage to finish the second version of the Great Getaway Bag.  This one is getting donated to East Cobb Quilters Guild for their auction at the quilt show next June, and I’ll post pictures next Friday (as a scheduled post since I’ll be at my retreat!).

I also buckled and bought a layer cake of a new Basic Grey line named “Persimmon”.  While I was perusing it and decided between a layer cake and a jelly roll, I managed to talk at least 2 or 3 other guild members into buying some pre-cuts of it as well.

We also did block pick up for Saturday Sampler this weekend, and I got both of mine whipped up this weekend. The Mum Medallion (on the left) is the same design as a previous block that gave me issues, but this time I figured out how to make it without the experimentation of before.  Make a 4″ finished HST of orange/green or mulberry/green, and then sew a 2 1/2″ square of the opposite color onto the green half. No specialty ruler needed!

One thought on “Sunday Stash - Prep Mode

  1. those blocks are lovely. It is good to work out your own way to do things isn’t it. Well done on your usage again this week. I am not expecting any finishes for the time we are away… although if I finish my jeans quilt then that will be a finish cause its quilt as you go. Hadn’t thought of that. Must get sewing so at some point in the next 8 weeks I get a finish.
