Fabric Fast Stats 04-13-14

This week I was slow going. I am not sure what I have been doing? Household stuff? adjusting into routine? I have no idea. But I just couldn’t seem to get it together in the studio. But I did put together the City Planner 9 Patch.IMG_8643

I also put together this quilt. The center of each block are printed panels. I am not sure why….but I let myself get sucked into these quilts every once in awhile. I added frames to each block and put them together. What I lack in piecing-> I am going to make up for in quilting. I think, I can bring this (cheater) quilt to life with my long arm.  🙂IMG_8644 IMG_8646

I also made a little wallhanging with some of the leftovers. The name of the line is called “Everlastings” by Sandy Gervais. (moda)IMG_8645


I also had to cut backing & Binding for a Round Robin quilt that came back to me this week. I just used extra wide muslin for my backing……the quilt is another HUGE one…so I had to use a yard of 30’s fabric for binding. Between the few Round Robin quilts I have had to add to and to finish my own…I have scraps of 30’s yardage left. That is officially the first type of fabric I have wiped out of my stash. I have several vintage projects that need to be worked on…???? But knowing me….I would add something modern to them anyway. 🙂 I can’t wait to quilt my 30’s quilt. Other than my GFG that just came back….I did not have a 30’s quilt in my collection. So now I have 2. And they both came back in the same week? Pretty Awesome!

I keep asking myself if I am going to start quilting some of these quilts that I keep making? Seriously the bins are getting ridiculous again. But I stand in front of the machine all of the time…so I have a hard time motivating myself to work on my own sometimes. It comes & goes in spurts. So I just have to go with the flow.

I also got a SWOON quilt back this week. Amy and I have been trading for years…she made a Swoon for herself and for me. OF course all of my fabrics were Amy Butler….so I chose a Backing from my AB stash and it’s called “Charisma” Pretty perfect right? That was 5 yards. plus half a yard for binding. IMG_8655 IMG_8656
