Design Wall & Stash Report Combo

I bought a new computer last week so as of this moment it does not have a word process on it so I do not know the previous numbers for my stash report.
Installation of programs will come after Tuesday probably Saturday.
Stash Report:
Added this week: 6 yards for the saints quilt
2 yards of fat quarters with veggie prints
1/4 yard of Halloween fat quarter.
Total this week: 8 1/4 yards

Used this week: 2 yards of black - squares of saints quilt
1 yard of black & gold - star points
3 yards of muslin for presentation sussies

Total this week: 6 yards

Net this week: -2 1/4 yards but I am working.

This past week I worked on my presentations and got thru the first one. With a few computer
problems, it went well. I found out where I needed to improve and what to add to provide more information. The guild members and the guests all loved the sussie I gave them to color. LOL
The hardest part of getting ready for these presentations is preparing the fabric for printing. Cutting the freezer paper, ironing the muslin, cutting muslin to size, and ironing freezer paper to the muslin was very time consuming. I got the 20 witches printed and the 210 mojoes printed
and learned lots about using Bubble Jet solution.LOL Tomorrow is the next presentation - the big one! Honestly, I have butterflies by the thousands fluttering in my bowels.

Other than the presentation, I have been working on my Saint's
quilt. I have embroidered the first 6 game scores and the center with batting on the back of each square. I intend to put the quilt together using a quilt-as-you-go method where there is different quilting on the back than the front. Hopefully it will work.
I finished the first part of the hand work on the dresden plates. Now I have to hand sew circles, arcs, and pacman symbols. All in all that is going well too.
Well off I go to set up old computer to print for presentation tomorrow. Hopefully, I won't have a
heart attack before the day is over. It will feel so good to get back to sewing especially since I am so close to actually quilting on two quilts..
Lator Gators. Have a blessed week. Check back tomorrow for up dates & pictures of me passing out.


  1. mom you did a great job on your presentation at guild meeting and will do good on next one. I have all the confidence in you. Your saints stars are looking great. I think your quilt will turn out way better than my two.

  2. My brother in law would doe for a Redskins quilt like your Saints quilt. Maybe if they win......LOL

  3. Congrats on the the presentation and good luck on the one for tomorrow. I figure in a presentation that you know more about the topic than the average quilter. If someone knows something I don't, I look at is as cross training so you get 2 for 2. I like to learn new things all the time. Just remember to have fun.

  4. Good luck for you presentation. Once you have done it, it becomes easier.

  5. Your dresdan looks good! It is coming along great.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I agree about the grands acting better at grandma's house!

    And glad you enjoyed the quilts at Jones Creek. Next years we will get two months!
