Sunday Stash Report, October 15, 2017

Kutarug assembly has begun.  What you see is about half the size of the project.  Right now calculations are estimating 35 rows across and 33 rows down.  It is evident that the entire project won't fit on the design wall.  To keep the colors varied throughout, I will be sewing half of the project then fold it over to continue to see what's close around each row.  Besides it keeps the kittens from being overly interested in pieces that are within easy reach.
I have many prepared setting units ready.  More are ready for trimming.  These are the easy units.
In the front are what remains of finished pinwheel units.  The back is the growing hour glass units and to the left are orange, red, and green soon to be hour glass units.  There is still a lot here to keep me busy.

No changes to stash once again.  But when it becomes time Kutarug is going to make a very big impact!

I received a couple more Birthday gifts.  The first one is from Kerry.  The spool chimes is so darn cute.  Also in the box some cute cat flower pins and a wordy neutral fat quarter pack.  Also some of my favorite cosmetic products.  Wow what a bunch of treasures came out of this gift bag!  Thanks Kerry.
Mom and Dad gifted me with a very nice top.  I like both the style and the color.  It's a winner!  The greeting card was quite touching.  I know my Mom spent a bunch of time finding the right card for me.  Love you and thank you Mom and Dad
Kutarug is moving along.  I had a friend do the math on how many pinwheels would be needed for the size of quilt that's in the plans to make.  Are you ready to hear?  Somewhere around 980!  I have about 200 made right now.  The 1.5" four glass units are taking lots of time to assemble.  There are certainly lots more to go.  A 2.5" square of the color fabric and a neutral makes two.  Red, orange, and green are going to come from my 2.5" scraps container.  I have been readying the neutrals...

This week I finished the binding on my Mom's new quilt.  Can you see how creative I was with the last of the blue stripe?  I had enough for the front but notice the inside of the binding...
I had lots of help =^.^=

I only had this much left.  Now that's using every bit of fabric to its fullest!  Nothing changes my fabric statistics this week.

Sunshine's BOM was assembled.  We were provided the white.  The second fabric was to be a Fall color, no Halloween we were specifically directed.  It is a large block.  I am anxious to see how it makes up into a project.


A couple of events took place this week that kept me from sewing.  Both my Sister and I celebrated birthdays.  I received a few nice gifts and cards.
Tim's brother was married to his long time partner Rita.  The wedding took place in Riverside by the Mission Inn.  The reception was held at the same location with about 40 celebrating the newly weds.

Have a great week.
