Working diligently now on Krooked Kreek, Bonnie Hunter's Grassy Creek. I am caught up to Part 6 and so very excited about it. My project is half the size for now. I really hope to make it a smaller version, but we'll have to see how the design looks when the last Parts are released. This coming Friday might be the last one...she never tells us when to expect the reveal!
This is the BOM for Sunshine Quilt Guild that went into the mail yesterday. Susan is the coordinator for the December BOM. She's hoping the winner might choose to make it a Quilt of Valor donation. We were to choose a Red/White/and medium to dark Blue for the units.
A Christmas gift from my parents brought a wool pressing mat into my sewing room. I have been interested in one of these for quite sometime now. I haven't noticed the wool smell that some have complained about. According to the packaging it is possible to notice the smell that eventually wears away with time. I must not have such a sensitive nose. It has worked out great with my first use. It works great to hold down the seams while you press.
I sure have been doing my part in helping Small Businesses!
Rossville Quilts and Bernia from Rossville, IN is the distributer for this purchase of Braveheart and Evergreen fabrics (right). The Quilt Basket from Bend, OR is the distributer for this purchase of Evergreen Layer Cake (left) for Mistletoe.
RebsFabStash from Moscow, ID is the distributer for this purchase of fabrics designed by Dani Mogstad for Riley Blake. It will become the backing for either Mistletoe or Jovial that are 2021 UFOs. My purchase was less than $5 after my October Birthday Gift Card from Kerry.Laundry Basket Quilts from Oxnard, CA is the distributer and designer for this purchase of fabrics. It will be part of Mistletoe. Another very nice purchase less than $5 after my Christmas Gift Card from Kerry. This is the only fabric that arrived in 2021 so far and it is a gift so it doesn't count as a purchase YIPPEE!
I do have two more orders coming from Laundry Basket Quilts and Fat Quarter Shop from Buda, TX that won't arrive until sometime this week that will be my first purchases of the year. I am also building for a project called Sonnet. I needed low volume neutral prints and the Signature Style FQ Bundle should work nicely. I am particularly looking for low volume neutral prints that work with cinnamon. There is still a search for these to be done in my stash yet. Sonnet is a new project for Kerry and I that we will start sometime in 2021. I can't say the Fat Quarter Shop purchase is meant for a project! It is the cute Animal Crackers collection all in neutral colors that builds my stash by two yards.
Fortunately all of these purchases were received before 2021...that magical time between the last Stash Report of 2020 and the first Stash Report of 2021. So I start the year off with zeros; already knowing next week that the last three stats below will change =^.^=
Used YTD: 0 yards
Purchased this week: 0 yards
