Granny Squares Quilt: Finished!

I finally finished the Granny Squares quilt for my friend! I used the Blue Elephant Stitches tutorial.

My husband helped me get pictures of it :) The backing was from the huge stash of fabric I got from my mom last year. I still have a ton of this fabric! I machine bound the quilt in white. I really like the idea of using the same color binding as the background.

My friend loves cupcakes so I used a cupcake print for it :) I used variegated thread for the quilting. I quilted around the granny squares and then around the outside border.

She was married in July but I only finished it yesterday :( Better late than never I suppose! Isn’t finishing quilts inspiring! I kind of want to make another one now. If only I had the time :(

Stash Report – Week of May 20, 2012

This week I worked on Granny Squares from my stash and I stopped by JoAnn’s last night to get some Granny Squares and small yardage. I want to try and use all different pink fabrics on each Granny Square, but that’s going to be hard!! Maybe I’ll use the solids twice at the very least :blush: Here are the new fabrics I picked up:

Used year to Date: 0.25 yards
Added this Week: 1.25 yards
Added Year to Date: 1.25 yards
Net Used for 2012: 1 yards

Happy Quilting!!

Stash Report – Week of May 6, 2012

I was inspired by Judy over at Patchwork Times to sit down and measure out my stash of fabric. I didn’t really want to face how much fabric I might have shoved under the bed, lol. After all the measuring and adding, I estimate my stash to be around 97 yards!! :omg: And that’s not even including my scraps bin, which has a couple of charm packs and a layer cake in it… :blush:

I’m going to start as of today; I have no idea how much fabric I’ve used so far and I do not want to figure it out!! So here’s my stash report:

Used this Week: 0 yards
Used year to Date: 0 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards
Added Year to Date: 97 yards
Net Used for 2012: 0 yards

I really need to get rid of some fabric apparently!!
