Stash 26 Sept 2009

Judy of Patchworktimes
has challenged all quilters and blog followers
to "show their Stash".
Great idea.
Below is mine:

Boxes of fabric, I think there are 24 plus there
are 2 with PhD's.
These are nearly done.
On the right are 2 bolts.
The left-hand is approx. 50 meters of backing fabric,
enough for plenty of quilts!!
I am still busy building my stash so maybe there will be
more containers next year.
Happy sewing,

21 sept Design wall

These chicken are on an apron which I painted at Craft Club.
The straps still need to be attached.

On the left is the completed top and the right is one block.
This was done at Izotsha over the week end.
It was the most fantastic time, just what a quilting retreat should be.
No cooking, washing or ironing except whatever you are sewing.
I had a wonderful time

This is what I have made with the Triple spinning star blocks.
A table runner.

Mondays do seems to come around very quickly but at least it gets us going.
Visit Judy to see what others are doing.

Until later,
Happy sewing

7 Sept Design Wall

I love Mondays.
It allows you to see progress.
The first one is a Lone Star which I have finally quilted and it just needs to be bound.

The second is the many blocks FPP which I will have to make about 56.
I have decided to make a centre block and then add a border of blocks.
Quilt should be about 50 inches square.

I am going on a quilting retreat this weekend and will be taking these with me to do as well as an already cut and bagged mystery quilt.
