Stash Report 4/2/17

Guild Log Cabins
  Another week of slow piecing! I worked on my guild's log cabin blocks. Each year we make 3 log cabin blocks in black/white and white on white with a colored square. Last year the center square was teal and this year the square is red. Then on our April meeting we play 3 bingo games for the squares. I have not won yet but hopefully this year will be the one!  Either way, I will get to count them as out on the second Thursday of April.
Need trimming
Ready for ironing
   Right now I am sewing on blue quarter square triangles for my Bonnie Hunter leader/ender project. I need 156 blocks for the blue round. Slow going - wonder if I will complete that flimsy as planned. 
   Bonnie is thinking about stopping after her next round. I am working on the same round as she is only I want to end this quilt with either red or purple round. We shall see - It may become my Leader/Ender project for the whole year!
    DGS#7 needed a pillowcase to replace his grungy one. His mom is super busy so I made him 2 which sort of match. So fabric has been used and a project completed. Pillowcases are fun to make once I match fabrics together. That is the hard part for me. I think that I will be making more as Christmas presents possibly paired with towels.

   I pulled fabric for the July Wedding quilt and then rejected all. She requested Halloween or Harley Quinn colors. To me that means orange, deep purple, lime green, greys, and black. I found a Halloween word print and a Harley Quinn piece so that will be the borders around the panel. It won't be a very big quilt - just sofa size but they are each getting a quilt so it will do. I couldn't combine the two quilts so it is what it is!

Guild Bingo Blocks: 3 of 3 done. 
Projects Not Advanced This Week:
Guild Challenge - Spring Table Runner 12 x 35 - I am rethinking my design. I think my Easter Eggs need to be pastel to go with the background fabric. 
Trash/Strings- This project has no deadline b/c it is me using up neutral strings and someone's trash. I do however enjoy sewing on it and it is #1 on the UFO list (JL).
Potholders - As soon as I catch up on other projects, I will complete these.
Blue Star - I still don't know when the Wedding will be so I keep this one on the back burner except that it is #11 on my UFO list (APQ).
Wedding Quilt - I rejected all the fabrics I pulled so I am back to square one on the July quilt. Then I pulled 2 more. (See picture above.)
Free Motion Quilting - It still scares me but I have polished the table and changed the foot on the machine I will be using. 


  1. You did great this week, I love the log cabin blocks.

  2. The Harlequin quilt sounds interesting. Congrats on a great stash report. Happy stitching this week.
