Sunday Stash Report, August 12, 2018


I have been working on the binding of this beauty all week.  Finished the last stitches on the sleeve just a bit ago.  Soon I will make time to put my quilt rack up and give you a better glimpse of the 2018-2019 Sunshine Quilt Guild's Opportunity Quilt.  Tickets are being printed and should be available to everyone soon.  The goal is to have it available for those who want to take a chance at winning it during the San Diego Quilt Show.  The quilt is 97" x 97" a good queen size custom all work done my members of the guild from piecing and applique to the custom quilting.

I am also helping out Janet with some binding projects.  The one pictured above is the current one being stitched.  What you see is the back and the pieced sleeve.  I'll wait to hear from Janet if she wants me to share any of her projects before I do.

These are the ones yet to bind.  Plus my friend Bonnie has three more that she hopes to finish before a package is mailed to my Mom's home later this month.

No new projects started until all this binding gets done!  Stash report today is unchanged from last week.

Sharing Kontingency again.  I'm so happy to have all 2017 UFOs done!  This design s one by Lisa W. Norton and Lora W. Zmak called Double Arrow.

For yardage used I am going to guess it at about half the size of the Throw yardage.  It is about that.  Today I spent all my sewing time preparing binding.  I'll share all of what I have to bind tomorrow.

The setting pieces are cut and sitting next to the finished blocks.  The pattern called for setting triangles and corners to match the star backgrounds (white), but this deep blue batik called out to me instead.  Well really the fact that I bought the last of this fabric (white) and only have about 3" WOF along with some scraps left made me think of alternatives!  I think this works for Kontingency.  Hope to have it done for Kerry when we see each other for sewing on Saturday.

A special Birthday shout out to Heaven today.  My brother Steve would have celebrated his 59th this year.  Sure miss him and the happiness he brought to us.👼
