Kapture
22" x 26"
UFO for July is complete.  Today the two borders were stitched down.  A finish for my Kapture!  A design by Pam Buda called Four Around Nine.  The design can be found in her trio of patterns called Tokens of the Past.  All fabrics came from stash...EXCELLENT.

Garment sewing for Violet and Ivy is next.  The fabrics are really cute and the EXCELLENT kind as well...straight from my stash.  Hope the two like what's soon to be in their closet.

Sunday Stash Report, July 23, 2017

Mom's Sun Bonnet Sue project started long ago for Tiffany is ready for quilting.  The project finished 68" x 80".  You should have heard the oohs and aahs it received when I was selecting the outside border and back.  The employees were very pleased to help make the selection.  Turns out I happened on the perfect discounted fabric - $5.00 a yard!  Love Beverly's already and now with this find even more...
I put the same sashing fabric around the pillows that will be finished by Mom.  The pillows will finish at 14" square.  They too will have the same backing as the quilt.  Tiffany has seen the project and is quite thrilled.
Beverly's had two more fabrics to come home with me.  The one on the top was another discounted fabric at $5.00 a yard.  The middle fabric is a back for a UFO yet to be started this year.  It was purchased with a 25% coupon.  The fabric on the bottom is the border and back for Tiffany's project.  Already in and out of my stash so I won't be counting it.

Used this week:  0 yards
Used YTD: 82.75 yards
Purchased this week:  10.5 yards
Purchased YTD:  30 yards
Net used in 2017:  52.75 yards

Kapture, my July UFO is on my Design Wall right now.  More on this project on tomorrow's post.  Oh, there is a block going the wrong way that has been corrected...

The beginnings of Kapture!  I started cutting the background neutrals on Sunday.  There are not many pieces to this project.  I managed to get just a few of the same print in both of the neutrals and reds.  These pieces are tiny...  The smallest of the squares is just 1 1/4".  I will be making Four Around Nine by Pam Buda (top right project).  Kapture is my July UFO.

Many of you learned about my two new fur-babies today.  This date marks their five week birthday.  I won't be able to see them until eight weeks.  They live not far from me in the Los Angels area.  It will be the week of my birthday when they move in with us.  So excited!

Hope you enjoy your week =^.^=
