Sunday Stash Report, December 30, 2012

Busy with Kwitcherbitchin the last couple of days.  There are 288 hour glass blocks to assemble for Bonnie Hunter's Pfefferneuse project.  They are definitely the time consumer in this design.  You can see I still have a stack of neutral/dark string blocks as well as neutral/green hour glass blocks to trim down.  I'm using my Bloc-Loc Rulers for this step.  Every time I use these rulers I'm pleased with the results.  I can't suggest enough to get a set of your own.
 
 
I'm putting the blocks up on the wall as I trim.  Moving them around to balance out the fabrics.  I think my Lori Smith blocks are going to come down to make room for Kwitcherbitchin.  There are still three up/down rows to get up.  Plenty of room once the 2012 Quilt Square Quilt Along Blocks come down.  Oh by the way the drums, guitar, and piano are applique patterns that I plan to use for wall hangings that DH requested.  I've got the fabrics for the drums already selected.  I'll be sharing this project with you soon.
 
As for the 2012 Year End Stash Report...  I've had a pretty good year.  2013 I'm hoping will be equal or better in the used category.  Hope that you were able to do what you set your sights on.  See how others performed in 2012 through the links at Patchwork Times.

From the photo of this quilt in the book, I never would have thought to put together the color combo you are using, but I have to tell you, when the photo of your design wall loaded on the computer screen, all I could say was, "Ohhh!" This is so striking, Sandi. Great combination!

Wow, sure never thought that this would have turned out like you have arranged. Very nice. DH has a big request, but a snap for you.

Love your new quilt. The colors just make it sing. Also like the little peek of blocks I see on the side. I see a paper pieced Christmas ornament (I printed but haven't tried yet), and some other interesting blocks. A good year for you and your stash.

Really like the colors of your quilt - it will be fun to see it when it is finished.

You have had a great year - hope 2013 is even better.
