This Week's Projects

The weekend went by with no sewing done... but I did manage to get some items crossed off my list last night when Christine came over to sew and tonight after supper.

At February's meeting of the London Friendship Quilter's guild, we will be handing in our purple nine patches for the 9 patch swap mystery quilt. I have mine done early this month!  I have to make 72 HST blocks as well sometime this month...those are still on my list.

I also made pillowcases for two cousins...The narrow band on each pillowcase is fabric that belonged to my grandmother. When she died, I was given a suitcase full of material that belonged to her. I have used much of it to make pillowcases for all her great and great, great grandchildren.

There is a new baby in the family too so he will be receiving a fabric book and a pillowcase. The turquoise fabric belonged to Grandma.

Another cousin and his wife will be having a new baby any day now. I made another quilted book for this baby.

I am getting closer to being able to start a new project.  The long arm quilter called tonight and the Outhouse quilt is done and ready for me to pick up. I will be working on binding tomorrow night so that I can give it to its new owner this weekend.

Next up, a couple of quilt backings need to be pieced.

My weekly stash report: I used 4.25 yards this week for a total of 14.25 yards used this year. I have purchased 8 yards of fabric this year. That means, my stash has been reduced by 6.25 yards of fabric in 2013.
