A long time..again (stash report week 35)


I still haven't figured out my photo dilemma.  I am out of space on Blogger/Picasa and can no longer link to Flickr since its recent upgrade using https:// in its links.

So, this one is current-project-photoless.  Unless, you would like to visit my Flickr page, "farmgirltransplant," to see what's been happening in my quilt corner.

Since school started at the beginning of the month, I have had some time to sew and listen to music or watch a movie or listen to an audio book fo rmore than 15 minutes.  Currently, I am stuck on Janet Evanovich audiobooks thanks to quilty friend Shannon!

from, mine is red and white

This week I managed to finish two tops!  WooHoo!  I am so tired of borders, 5 in all!

The Charming Stars quilt is now a completed top in the queue for quilting.  It measures 74x74, so the top used 5.3 yds.  I need to shop the stash and get a back ready this week.

And - drumroll please, Celtic Soltice is finished!!!  For versions other than mine, which is on Flickr, please visit Bonnie's blog post from January.

My top measures 77x77.  It was supposed to finish at 72x72 but to make the 2nd border, a pieced border, work and get an inner border that measured more than 1",  I had to add a blocks to the pieced border.  I love it!  It's finished for now!  It also used about 5.3 yds for the top.

I also purchased fabric from Ozark Fabric on Facebook.  I am such a sucker for a sale! Mostly it was FQs, half yards, and two yards of a nice Quilting Treasures neutral, which always seem to be in short supply in the stash.  There is one pretty blue batik FQ that quilty friend Joyce brought back from her visit to Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Oh - and some size 12 perle cotton.  I really must get back to my handwork and embroidery.
