Karre is finished (Carre is a type of tulip).  This was from a Sunshine Quilt Guild BOM Win.  I won the blocks Hallie coordinated.  To balance out all the colors and make it a nice size I added the two purples.  It is quilted with the cutest bee pattern in pastel thread.

Also done is Julie's Flower block.  This is May's BOM.  Julie supplied the green and neutral pieces.  Participants were to add a 4 1/2" flower square.

Still binding today.  Katching Kluckers is what's being sewn.  192" around, label, and sleeve.  I also have a very funny caption sewn to the back.  Need to look for three small black buttons for the turkey eyes.

Hope your week ahead is awesome=^.^=

Sunday Stash Report, May 22, 2022


This coming week is a birthday and this is the gift that will be going to Tiffany.  I know she will just love it.  Wait until she gets her eyes on the quilting design...  There is also a second gift that accompanies Krush, but this one will be left as a surprise.  I will share once she has it in her hands.

Along with Karre and Katching Kluckers with binding, label, and sleeve there wasn't much more happening in my sewing room other than putting everything in its place after the retreat.  Those who know about going on retreats can understand how this works :)

A trip to the post office had packages and extra postage envelopes going to several places across the U.S.  Iowa, Arizona, Wisconsin, and two California addresses had deliveries from me.  This week a trip to the post office will have packages going to Maryland and two Virginia addresses.  Boy, it would be nice to deliver all of these in person.

Nothing changes my stash numbers this week.  Can't wait to see some sort of movement soon.  Happy week everyone=^.^=

My 2021 - 2022 Sunshine Challenge project was ready to present at the meeting last Tuesday.  The Challenge was a Beetles theme using three provided fabrics and having a beetle not a Beetle in the project.  No win for me, but I overheard nice comments while the membership voted for their favorite two.  Mine has the Beetles song Roll Over Beethoven using fabric 1 in the sheet music, fabric 2 in the lyrics, and fabric 3 in the beetle of the three letter "Os" as well as the binding.  Notice the dog Beethoven from the Universal Pictures movies that began in 1992.  Beethoven has a top hat on and is rolling over between the four vinyl records.  The back shares the lyrics and the story of Beethoven. 

Challenge fabrics are on the right with fabric 1 at the top, fabric 2 next, and fabric 3 at the bottom.  The fabric on the left is the back and the middle is the background.

The fabric charm packs were given for participation in the Challenge and a door prize win.  The evening was packed with all kinds of fun!

The rest of this week will be on catching up on all the binding projects, finishing Hearts of Hope, and hopefully cutting out Kauldron.  Hope your week catches you up on starts and finishes.
