Sunday Stash Report, March 1, 2015

Today is UFO Parade Day for February at Aunt Marti's 52quilts.com.  If you have time check out who finished projects this past month.  Also it's the time when March's project number is selected...wonder what you'll be seeing me working on next month?  I'm pretty excited to get into something new.



This week I have the completion of Kurry to account for and the purchase of its back.  I picked up this yellow print with just a touch of pink from Beverly'.  I'm thinking to use scraps from the fabrics of the top for a scrappy binding.  After that wide border of purple bringing movement out to the binding seems like a good idea to me.  As for the quilting thread either a multi colored or yellow are racing across my thoughts.  The decision will come once there is an audition at Kerry's Quilting.


I have four quilts ranging in size from a two block project in Krazy Koons 2 to Kurry.  My queue is getting deeper for Kerry!  Its a good thing I have a full time position...


Yesterday since my sewing room lacks an active project in anticipation for March's UFO to be selected, I pulled out Korners to work on.  Korners is from the Bonnie Hunter workshop I took in November last year.  It is her design Winston Ways.  There are 620 2 1/2" unfinished 4-patches to make.  I probably have less than 100 sewn together.  When this UFO is called I'll be racing to have these done.  How nice would it be if I can have them ready?


Used this week: 18.5 yards
Used YTD: 61.25 yards
Purchased this week:  5 yards
Purchased YTD: 34.25 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2015:  27 yards

I hope that you have a lovely Sunday and a wonderful March.  See how others are using their stash through the links at patchworktimes.com.

Only the hand stitching applique to do yet on this Bella Bella project called Sewing in the Round by Norah McMeeking.  I want to finish this one off as a small wall hanging.  Starting to think of border possibilities.  I'd like to have it just a bit larger, but could settle with it being this size too.  Kompass for this project's name is a good idea Jennifer.

Sewing room including the design wall are ready for March's UFO!

I have my Sunshine Quilt Guild BOM done.  Wonder who will be the lucky member to win in March...
I added the inner ring to the outer ring of my Bella Bella project.  Let me tell you it wasn't easy.  The circle at the top will be hand appliqued in place.  I have some pressing and prepping to do before moving on.

Happy Wednesday!
