Stash Report Sunday 7/27/14

I didn't feel like I got much quilting done this week, but when I checked my stash report list, I discovered that I had done more and used more fabric than I originally realized. No fabric added, so I am getting closer to even again.

Used this week:
1/8 yard--hexies
1/8 yard--2 LeMoyne stars
3.25 yards--tablecloth

We are having a big birthday party for my sister-in-law today. I discovered this great border-print fabric in my stash and decided to make it into a tablecloth. I love how bright and cheery it is!




Used this week:                            3.5  yards
Used year to date:                     76.5  yards


Stashed this week:                          0  yards
Stashed year to date:               86.75 yards 

Net year to date:   
                10.25 yards stashed

Finishing Up Red


It has been such a busy week that I don't have much progress to show on my red blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I did finish the last couple of 6" LeMoyne Star blocks, bringing my total to 8. The pieces for the scrappy red 12" star have been cut and laid out, but are still waiting to be put together.




I put a couple of each color of star up on my design wall to show to friends tomorrow.  We haven't had an orange month yet (maybe August?), but I had one orange block that was made many years ago. It's so much fun to see all the colors together!

Design Wall Monday 7/21/14

My design wall is mostly empty, but I do have my 6" LeMoyne Star blocks finished. I have been making these all year for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, where the assigned color for July is red. All that's left for these is to make a scrappy 12" red star.

A few scraps of red

For some reason, quilting time just didn't happen much this past week. Too many other things going on in the evenings I guess. I did manage to finish two more red LeMoyne Star blocks on light background. They are shown along with the four blocks on dark fabric from last week.


I hope to complete the last two blocks this week, plus make a scrappy 12" star before the end of the month.

Design Wall Monday 7/14/14

Over the weekend I finished my July blocks for Judy L's Tell It to the Stars mystery. This is my guess at a possible layout for the blocks. I wonder what Judy has planned for us in August and the rest of the year.


I rearranged the blocks in an attempt to get the stars better balanced, moving the two darkest blocks into the center of the layout. There's no telling how many more blocks we will be making and where they fit into the plan.

Stash Report Sunday 7/13/14

I've had a very productive quilting week, which is somewhat surprising since I also returned to work full time last week. However, my husband was working every evening during the week, so I spent as much time as possible in the sewing room while he was away. 

The largest amount of fabric used this week was for this Musical Stars baby quilt. You can read more about this quilt here. It measures 36.5" square and used 2-7/8 yards of fabric.


I also used 1/4 yard for 4 LeMoyne Star blocks, 5/8 yard of white for signature blocks, and 1 yard for the July blocks for the Tell It to the Stars mystery.

My only addition this week was this beautiful rainbow pack of hand-dyed fabrics that I won for participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The hand dyes were from Vicki Welsh. The weird wavy lines are from my photo, not the fabrics.




Used this week:                               4.75  yards
Used year to date:                         72.75  yards


Stashed this week:                         1.25 yards
Stashed year to date:                    86.75 yards 

Net year to date:   
                      14 yards stashed
