Stash Report and... some finishes!

Fabric Used this week :     .55 yard - I cut the binding for a jelly roll quilt, then pinned it to it so someone ( preferably NOT me) can bind it!!

Fabric Used YTD:      221.9 yards

Fabrics in this week:   0 Yards
Fabrics Added  YTD:   159.4 yards

Fabrics BUSTED:   62.51 yards

Altho not a lot of fabric was used this week, a lot of quilting got done, which made me happy!

This is a comfort quilt for our quilt guild. It was done as a block of the month - where a lot of people made the same block then turned them in, another gal put them into a top, and I quilted it, and cut the binding strips.... for the *next* person to bind..tee hee 
Here's a close up of the quilting.
I got the Red Jelly Roll Quilt quilted, and binding cut for it. I will be taking it to our May sew day, and letting some sweet quilter bind it.... 
I also got this Jelly roll Quilt quilted, I did lots of waves so it kind of looks like a waving flag.

And last but not least, I got the binding on Wrangler Mans quilt done. He is taking a leadership class this weekend for Shooting Sports in 4-H, and its pretty long, so I layed the quilt across the couch for him to see. He said - Wow I would love a quilt like that. Is it going to a soldier?  

I said - nope its for you... and he smiled, and then he did NOT offer me chocolate. He said NO ONE is to eat around *MY* quilt.

So I guess he liked it, he may keep me around *grin*

Too see other stash reports go to

You've been busy! And even something that stays at home - I am pretty sure certain people will "keep you around" for a long time!!

I love the jelly roll quilt. I am keeping that idea for a future quilt~! As always, I enjoy your quilts. I can partially identify with Wranger Man: I taught 4-H shooting sports for 9 years, however, chocolate should be enjoyed everywhere! Have a great day!

Quilter Kathy said... did accomplish a lot this week...way to go!
