Sunday Stash - Double Duty

This week I worked on 3 of my 5 Super Seekrit Special raffle quilt blocks.  As a reward for getting most of them done, I finished two other smaller quilts - the Flower Power one from WIP Wednesday this week, and a pinwheel baby quilt with a minky back.  And because I listen to Lynn, who is very smart and knows the Power of Labeling, I made a bunch of quilt labels and even used some of them on recent finishes.

This week I think I’m going to work on my Glow Sticks quilt from Cristy Fincher’s class and the remaining raffle blocks, then back to the pattern designing and testing work. Here’s my fabric for the Glow Sticks quilt:

  • Used this Week: 8.25 yard
    • 3.75 yd for Baby Pinwheel quilt
    • 4.25 yd for Flower Power quilt
    • 0.25 for miscellaneous quilt labels
  • Used Year to Date: 92 yards
  • Added this Week: 0 yard
    • Woohoo!
  • Net Used YTD: 42.25 yards
  • YTD Used for Charity: 41.25 yards (45% of total used)

  1. pam, you absolutely amaze me with all the quilt finishes and yardage used all while having two kids, a fulltime job, and a bunch of quilty stuff, etc, etc…how do you do it all?

    oh, and you keep me company while i make quilts at a snail’s pace.

    i’ve been lurking for a long while now, and i’ve recently gone back to earlier episodes. i wanted to tell you that my son (who was born the same year as star wars episode 4)would only answer to ‘han solo’ when he was 2-3 and later when he was applying to nyu for college wrote his essay on what he had learned about life from star wars. so thank you for the idea of making star wars quilts for han and his brother. i’d been collecting star wars fabric for a while with no real plan, but now the plan is cooking! andy wasn’t born until ’84 but is even more of a star wars buff than han(rob)! someone even made his daughter a rocking horse at-at! and i made the grandkids yoda and princess leia dolls for christmas (leia is emma’s favorite disney princess, you know. yes, we are a star wars family

    and you read!!!
    do you have a time stretcher? where can i get one?

  2. I am confused about the new niece. Is your sister having another baby (2 YO, 16YO and new baby???) or is this a new niece from your DH’s side. I am pretty sure you said your sister….

    I like the Glow Stitcks fabric. Glad you chose solids. It is much easier to blend them than print fabrics. Ask me how I know. 😉

    Nice job on the finish. I did about 40 1/2 blocks on my Peacock quilt/One Block Wonder while I listened to your last two episodes.
    Have a great week.

    1. Same question about the baby. At one point you made a reference that sounded like she might be having twins?!!?!?!? Fill us in!

      Also, I adore these fabrics! They are gorgeous and really do seem to glow.
