Stash Report - May 11, 2014

All in all this was a productive week, thanks to three days at a guild retreat. 

You can read about my progress here and here.

Although I had aspirations of accomplishing more, I'm still happy with the outcome.

One yard went for bindings on Irish Gran and the Cruise Quilt, two quilts that had already been counted out of my stash.

I added the final border and made the back on Bargello with a Twist for another four yards out.


And I used two yards for the back on Sand and Surf. I recounted the process of making the diagonal pieced back in Friday's post here.

Total used this week:  7 yards.  I came close to finishing True Blue, Baby Blocks, and Elegant Garden.  Now that I have selected borders and sashing for these, it should be easy to finish them this week.

  1. Wow! What a great week for you! All the quits are so pretty! Congrats!

    1. Thanks, Melanie. I save all my "big" work for retreats where I can spread out. That usually means I have a lot of finishes with borders and bindings. Makes me feel good, anyway.

  2. Congrats on getting so much done at your retreat. Love all the bright colors in your quilts.

    1. Hope you're enjoying a lovely day like we are here.

  3. You go girl~ Your quilts are beautiful!

    1. Thanks John'aLee. I've been missing your beautiful posts. Hope all is well.
