Stash Report October 10, 2010

Saturday my quilting buddies and I had a quilting day.  We haven’t had one of those in a long time.  We had a great time and each of us accomplished a significant amount of quilting. Too bad I didn’t think about bringing a camera.  T – quilted a baby quilt, J – completed a wall hanging, sandwiched it and started the quilting on it,  S – finished the quilting on a quilt and started attaching the binding, V – finished marking the lines on her squares for her HST and flying geese (and there were tons of them!) and I got all of the Star Struck blocks sewn into rows and sewed 8 rows into 4 pairs of rows.

Before we started all of this there was the field trip to the LQS.  I was being very good and then I heard from across the store  “Pammy, have you seen this music fabric?”  I promise I tried to ignore the question — in fact I hollered back “Not interested”.  The someone tracked me down and put it in my hands.  I was lost then.    I almost made it out of the store with just the pattern on the right and the yellow music FQ, but then it was suggested that the black w/yellow dot would be a great lining fabric, so it jumped into my bag as well.

The guitar fabric was given to me.  J had a length of it she was going go make a whole cloth quilt from.  I jokingly said “I need a FQ of that”.  The next thing I knew, she handed me a FQ.  Turns out she bought one for me when she bought what she needed for her quilt. Thanks, J!

Evening in Ireland is a cool Irish Chain variation.  The pattern is available on the internet from the designer, Truddie Hughes.  I’ve always wanted to make an Irish Chain quilt, so I’ve added this to my list of possible choices for when I get that far.

Not pictured are the leaders for the HandiQuilt that arrived Friday afternoon.

Now that you know what came into the house (really it was only 3/4 of a yard countable), what did I do on the outbound side?

I continued working on my DWR — no fabric there until I get to the binding.  But I also worked on my Green & Cream swap blocks.  I’m quilting them one block at a time and I don’t have the all of the backing squares cut yet.  Used 1/2 yard.  I also finished 20 Blue Ridge Beauty blocks, that’s a bit over 1/2 yard.  Finally I started working on “the new project” using just a bit of fabric.  In the end I used more than I brought into the house, so that’s a good thing.

That is a great Irish pattern…. it might make it into my list of things to make. Liz

That sounds like fun. It makes me wish I knew local quilters so I could do something like that with friends!
