Sunday Stash Report, August 7, 2016

Saturday when I had anticipated working on Kalvery...

I found myself driven to the cork birdhouse that has been sitting on my pantry table for the better part of a week.  It needed some remodeling!  Needless to say it took all morning.  I'm not really one to work on this type of "crafty" projects.  No Mom I'm not going to convert =^.^=  It was fun, but there must be a better glue gun than the one I have.  Talking about glue; this project used more than you could possibly guess.  I even fashioned a perch with a cooking skewer for the birdies to rest on before they make their way inside.
Next I sewed down the binding on Katchaklaus.  (This is one of the fun names to say along with Kwitcherbitchin' and Kookoo Katchu.)
Small Stars
Block 12
Block 11
I did cut out all the pieces for the last two large blocks and six stars.  I made one extra star just because the fabrics were handy and nearly the right size.  It may either replace one that is in the project now or make its way to the back or the sleeve.
Inner Borders
These pieces separate the blocks.  The two fabrics are for the inner and outer border.  The red goes next to the eagles and then around the entire pieced center.  The tan will go next and finally a dark blue outer border.

Today I sew!  See how much I get done when you return for tomorrow's Design Wall Monday. change to my stash stats this week.  See other quilters using their stash through the links at Patchwork Times.

Bird house looks good. I completely understand about not being crafty. Fabric only, please, preferably flat for quilts¡

Birdhouse looks great! I am glad you took the time to finish it. You are almost there with Kalvery. I am sure it will be done by next week's stash report.
