A finish! (Stash Report Week 39)

DSC03439Geesh - what took me so long?!

All I had to do was measure, trim batting and backing, and press the backing to the front and the binding is done.  This poor ol' thing has been sitting around forever.

Unlike lots of quilts, this one looks better in the photo than it does in person.  It will definitely be a picnic or game quilt.  A finish is a finish and my used numbers reeeeaal-llly needed a boost.  It measures 81x81 so that's 16.313 yards out (7.25 yds backing,  9.06 front scraps (backing x 1.25).

UntitledThe yardage for my Star Surround QAL pillow tops is already in the "used" column.  Last night, while DH and DS were camping with the cub scouts, I finally finished binding them.

I had thoughts of getting all kinds of sewing done but then I realized that I was tired. The house was so quiet.  I had to stream Foyle's War from last week - love that show and abhor interruptions when I'm watching some quality television, since it is such a rarity these days.

Before enjoying the house to myself, which has not happened in 6 years btw, quilty friend Karen and I went to a local quilt show, a halloween shop, and out to dinner.  What fun to have adult female conversation and to have someone cook a meal and wait on me!

And, the temps are back to normal after a bit of rain overnight, but not so much to make the campers miserable.  I can't wait to put on a pair of jeans and a jacket!

  1. Yipee!!! Good for you on all fronts - a finish, good TV, good food and a friend to share the show. Great stash busting and your quilt does too look as good in person as in the photo.! What fun to have a day or weekend to yourself and do what YOU WANT to do with no other commitments. How was the qullt show? I was going to go but couldn't find anyone willing. Love your pillows too.

  2. Congrats on the finishes and the girl time. I really like your pillows - both pattern and colors.

  3. Good numbers this week! 16 yards used is an accomplishment.
