Sunday Stash Report, December 4, 2016


Picked up this magenta for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery En Provence.  

I gave a lot of thought to making it scrappy.  I even pulled a bunch of pinks from my stash.  Would have been nice, but I decided to rely on Bonnie's wisdom with a single fabric "constant" for my project.  Sometimes if you go too scrappy the project becomes to busy.

I am also working on Krosscheck.  This one is completely from my stash and a 2016 UFO.  It will be nice to display during St. Patrick's Day.  The strips in the front are all that is left from the piece in my stash I cut from...so nice!

I have finished the Sunshine 2016 November BOM.  We added the batiks.  They were all supposed to be bright.  The white background was provided and the lime green (when sewn will be stars) was required.  Doesn't look too lime in the photo, but trust me it is.

Used this week:  0 yards
Used YTD:  201.75 yards
Purchased this week:  1.25 yards
Purchased YTD:  129.25 yards
Net used in 2016:  72.50 yards

There are more quilters using up their fabrics.  See what else is going on through the links that Judy has on her blog.

Part 1 of En Provence is finished.  I spent Sunday finishing them.

I wonder what color is next?  I am also trying to come up with a name for my En Provence.  Something French that starts with a "K" =^.^= would work perfectly.  Any ideas are welcome.

In the meantime Krosscheck will be on the sewing machine...as soon as I pull fabrics!  I am linking up with Quiltville.com and PatchworkTimes.com.

Sunday Stash Report, November 27, 2016


Lavenders from Kerry arrived.  We are sharing these seemingly hard to find lavender fabrics.  These came from Memory Lane and her stash.

This is Part 1 of En Provence.  I will be using 3 yards of neutrals for the project.  I have not done any counting yet, just stitching strips and blocks from my precut scraps.  Once this heap has been ironed and cut to the correct size the counting will begin.  I will need 221 4-patches.  I am also looking for help naming this French project...


Have you ever used the Bloc-Loc Strip-Set Ruler?  It works very nice keeping the units true to size.  For the squares I use the standard ruler.

Kookoo Katchu has it's binding all sewn down.  Anxious to have it done, but love the opportunity to bind.

Here is a close up of the great quilting by Kerry.  The circles follow the design from the middle of the quilt.  I'm not the best for capturing quilting, but hopefully I have managed to give you a good look.

I had a finish in Konstant Konnection early last week.  There are more 2016 UFOs to stitch between En Provence Parts.  Soon you will be seeing Kozy Korners or Krosscheck under the needle.  For now here are my stats:

Used this week: 3.75 yards
Used YTD:  201.75 yards
Purchased this week:  0 yards
Purchased YTD:  128 yards
Net used in 2016:  73.75 yards
