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
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!!
Oh my goodness! No sooner do I see that I was featured at JAQS, I continue clicking through my blogroll and see that Positively Perfect was featured on QuiltStory’s Fabric Tuesday, too!
My quilt on QuiltStory!
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!
