Stash Report Week 44

It's been 3 weeks?!  Amazing!!  Guess I needed a break.

I still haven't solved my photo issue, so this will be short.  There have been no finishes but I did work on several projects this past week.  That is because quilty friends and I had our annual retreat at the St. Louis Star Inn last weekend.  

I worked on some old projects that just need to get finished:  Jacob's Ladder blocks started in 2007 and the Marti Michell (i.e. templates) Cider Mill BOM started in 2009.  

They did not get finished but progress was made.  However, I did finish piecing the giant Dresden plate blocks for DS's twin size quilt.

Just last night I started putting the yellow and black "T" square blocks together.  I laid 54 of them out on the spare bed thinking I could take with me to retreat, but it just seemed too daunting to be able to keep them in order.  So, I left them.  Our spare room is too small for me to set up the card table so I put the featherweight on a wooden TV tray next to the bed and started getting them together.

Toby Lischko, quilt designer and owner of the Inn, gifted us all with 2 FQs and I dove into her "free scraps" bin for the equivalent of another, so I added a teeny bit to my stash since the last report, all batiks of course.

  1. Love the dresden plate for your son's quilt and also the T block.

  2. Kris, was delighted to hear you were at the St. Louis Star retreat center. Isn't that a nice place and the food great? Your giant Dresden plate blocks are wonderful and so bright. Can't wait to see them put together in a quilt. WOW, your YTD gifted/inherited numbers are fantastic. You must have some great friends!!
