Stash Report Week 8

A little bit later than usual....

The only thing I have to report about my stash this week is that I was in the thick of it -- cutting strips.

Next week I travel to the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show (Bloomington, IN)and take a Pineapple Blossom class with Bonnie Hunter.  I decided to use up lots of blue and make this a QOV quilt.  So I have strips and squares cut for that project.

When I started to work on Easy Street, several pieces were running low.  That's what happens when you don't count into the hundreds.  So I spent about 2 hours cutting triangles with the Easy Angle and Companion Angle rulers.  I think I might be done cutting for this one. This will be my leader/ender project in the workshop.

And in between, I took a teensy quilting break.  Did some super easy SID on part of the sewing machine cover. Thought I would finish this up with some decorative hand stitches with white perle cotton.

And some quilting/applique on the Lollipop wallhanging.  Instructions usually tell us to applique then quilt but this little cutie is constructed a bit differently (quilting before backing is added), and, it's a wallhanging so no one will see the back.

In the middle of the week I played with squares, thinking about making a sewing machine cover for my mom.  I have a little drawing on graph paper and need to sew up some more of Grandma's squares.

  1. Lucky you, getting to take a Bonnie Hunter class. I hope to do that one day. I noticed you also quilted your sewing machine cover before adding the backing. Is that something you do often?

  2. Hi, Kris - that Lollipop wall hanging sounds intriguing with the different way to assemble. Look forward to seeing it. And your mom's gonna love her cover! Thanks for linking at Applique Thursday.
