I have been working away at several different projects this week, trying to tie up some loose ends and meet all of my upcoming deadlines. I am not sure it is ever possible to "catch up" but I sure am going to try!
We had a meeting of the Elgin Piecemakers this past week. Here is a picture of all of our red, black and white blocks for this month's charity quilt.
This quilt has been quilted and just needs binding. It will be ready for delivery soon.
Today, I have been working on a round robin quilt. 3 friends and I are participating. I have already put a border on one person's quilt and this one is round 2. We will exchange again in early May for the last round. We hope to get together for lunch to give the quilt tops back to their original owners. We each supplied the middle block and the fabric for the rest of the quilt, although, everyone said that we could add our own fabric to each project. No pictures allowed until the grand reveal.
I did the binding on another kid's charity quilt for the London Friendship Quilters' Guild this week. This is another group project with Nancy piecing the top and back, me supplying the batting and doing the binding and Cathy did the long arm quilting.
My stash report for this week... I purchased some fabric for a workshop that I will be taking later in May. I needed 1/2 yards and my stash consists mostly of fat quarters. I also purchased backing fabric for the quilt at the top of this post.
Fabric used since my last stash report: 4.2 yards
Total fabric used this year: 53.85 yards
Fabric added to the stash since my last report: 10.5 yards
Total fabric added this year: 54.65 yards
Net fabric added this year: 0.8 yards
Until next time...
