Sunday Stash Report, March 20, 2022


After a very long time this beautiful Lonestar is finished.  There were three that my friend Christy found homes for recently and this one found me.  According to Christy her friend Hulda says her Great Grandmother Lillie Knight hand stitched the top.  Lillie came to California about 1908 from Maine.  Hulda thinks this project was made in the 1920s or 1930s.  Kerry did the quilting perfectly to accentuate the spaces and the unique lonestar design.  It finishes at 90" square.  A red fabric that matches very closely to the red Lillie used is the binding.  Well Lillie I hope you are happy with the finish.  It was an honor to accomplish it for you.

During the week Kackling came back to me.  I have the project trimmed up and ready for so magic putting together a sleeve with the extra pieces.  I am uncertain if it will be an orange or a black binding.  Leaning towards orange...

That same day Karryon came back too.  Also have this one trimmed up and ready for sleeve and binding.  I don't have any extra pieces so will likely use the gray that is also the backing for it.  Red fabric will be the binding of this I'm sure.

Kyushu came too!  What an exciting week for me from Kerry!  I have it on my table ready for trimming.  I have to audition the aquas in my stash to see if something will work for binding.  I have a few pieces to add into the sleeve that will also be from backing fabric.

There is no change to stash numbers.  Most of the week was spent hand sewing either on the Lonestar or Koastline.  I'm gathering projects for my Quilting Retreat in Yuma, AZ today.  DH has kitty sitting for a few days...he's good at this=^.^=

Hope your week ahead is a good one =^.^=
