Sunday Stash Report, December 10, 2017


What is becoming the most posted about project ever, Kutarug.  You can't notice but the last two rows on the wall are sewn together.  Still have them to stitch to the main piece.  These two rows and the next one might be the longest of the entire project.

As you can see I have more on the way...  I need all six colors to keep the mix consistent.  These two stacks are green and black with of course the neutral ready for cutting and marking.

The group to the left are greens, blacks, and reds all waiting for the final press before sewing into a row.  In the back are more purples, greens, and a few blues.  As you can see in the beginning photo more gold/blue HSTs are going to be needed.  I still don't see an end to this project =^.^=

Nothing changes this week.  I'm headed to family gatherings this week.  Plan to raid Mom's stash for melons and aquas for On Ringo Lake project.  For more variety I will be gathering anything that will work for Kutarug!  Until next time -

This week I will be sending off Kourageous to the Road to California Committee.  Judges will look at it sometime before the show in late January 2018 to score it with the rest in its category.  The blue fabric is to hide the label so there isn't any bias during the judging.
Still working through the hour glass units that eventually become pinwheel blocks for Kutarug.  I'm hoping to use up some of Mom's stash during my visit there next week.  Not that I don't have enough, but variety is always nice.
On Ringo Lake for me is at Part 2.  These will be coming with me to Maryland in case I feel the need to sew.  Mom's stash will certainly be scoured for these melon colors.  I will be using the new ruler pictured.  I am sort of old school, but one never knows until a new way is attempted.  It promises to take a step out of the process.  No name yet for this project...suggestions always accepted.  Keep the "K" in the name :)

Sunday Stash Report, December 3, 2017

Friday was one of the rare opportunities during the holiday season to share the day with Kerry.  She's in retail and spends most of this the time from Thanksgiving through the new year at her store.  We swapped stash fabrics for Bonnie Hunter's On Ringo Lake and eventually found our way to Rosie's to get more teals and a couple of melons.  We each purchase an equal share of half yard cuts then split them.  Our projects will end up with many of the same fabrics, but you'd never be able to notice!
These are the 50 9-patch blocks that make up Part 1.  The Simple Folded Corner Ruler that I ordered for the Mystery showed up on my doorstep on Friday just in time for Part 2.  I haven't yet started, but anxious to give the ruler a try with the Flying Geese in this Part.
Next came assembling the pieces for Sunshine Quilt Guilds December BOM that Joan coordinated.  Joan supplied the neutral.  Participants were to add a medium and dark Christmas fabric.  I won't be at the meeting so it was left with Kerry to turn in for me.
So I have a change this week due to the new project On Ringo Lake!  I working my way still through Kutarug too.  All the units I shared with you last week needing to be trimmed before assembly were trimmed throughout the week.  Now I'm hoping to get to that half way point with this project.  Did I make enough to get through the three largest rows?  Stay tuned for tomorrow's Design Wall post.
