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:
Also apparently I did last week’s counts wrong so here are my NEW counts:
Used this Week: 0.25 yards
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
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!!
This is the first time one of my quilts has been recognized in the quilting community like this, I’m just so excited! I’m glad so many people like the quilt. Thank you Heather and Megan!
It’s nice to be recognized for something you put so much hard work into, isn’t it?
The quilt for mu cousin is finished! I used this Positively Perfect quilt pattern and a jelly roll of Cape Ann fabrics, among others, to make it. I tried to get some outdoor pictures of the quilt this time and I also messed around with the contrast and other settings in Photoshop, so maybe this time my pictures are a bit better!
You can see the quilting really well in this shot. I did a diamond pattern on the pluses and dots, and then lines on the borders.
The back was pieced together using leftover pieces from the two border fabrics on the front, and leftover pieces from the Jelly roll. I also had one more plus left over somehow, so I used that in the backing, too.
You can see the binding a bit better on this one. I used all the leftover stripey fabrics from the jelly roll to machine bind my quilt. I love that I can just grab a few strips from my Jelly roll to bind the quilt! Makes things so easy.
This “made with love” label was on one of the selvage pieces! How nice is that? So I added in my name and date to the label. Forgive the smudging… I want to keep things as anonymous as possible. :blush:
