Big improvements in the stash department this week!!
At guild on Monday I took advantage of the large tables to lay out and measure three projects I had worked on at retreat so that I could cut borders and sashings. "Playing with Colors" is now a flimsy, ready for quilting -- my only finish for the week. 2.75 yards out!
Sashing was added to the Elegant Garden blocks -- center finished, borders ready to cut and apply. BTW, I found the pattern in 40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts by Evelyn Sloppy. 0 yards out. ;-(
In spite of my best intentions, I did not get the borders on True Blue. BUT my time was not wasted. In searching for examples to illustrate a lecture I'll be giving tomorrow night, I came across a group of color-coordinated practice blocks. I shipped them off to Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict who assures me that Rita, her "orphan block queen" will work her magic and create something lovely for their quilt ministry. 1.75 yards out!
I didn't stop there, however. Liberated by the feeling of giving up a dozen-plus blocks, I started looking around for other things I knew I would never use or that I had so much of I could share. Soon panels and novelty prints and fat quarters and yardage suitable for backs began piling up.
I will be delivering the pile to Sarah on Tuesday. 53.5 yards out !!!!!
I have now officially recovered from my spending spree in Paducah. AND I have space on the top shelf for wide backs.
AND I have a clean cutting table.
(Please, don't turn around and look at my sewing table or the floor or my project storage cubes!!!)
