Fabric Fast Stats

IMG_8566OK so each week as I sift & sort through my stash I always find something I forgot about ….last weekend it was a stash of purple & gold FQ’s they were hidden under a project I have saved for a few years. I remember sorting these FQ’s for a certain project in a certain book I loaned out. But now that time has passed I already have a quilt made like the one I was going to make..and decided to make an “O” quilt. I see them on Pinterest all the time…and it just appeals to me. So I put this together using those purples & golds. I had more gold but decided that 1 gold ring would look best. 🙂 Very modern.  I also pieced the back and binding. I have been piecing a lot lately because I have been stressed and piecing seems to calm me down more than quilting. So I am keeping up with my work and going into la-la land. It’s teenager stress. IMG_8567 IMG_8568

I also found a quilt in American Patchwork & quilting a few weeks ago that just appealed to me. It’s in the June 2011 issue. It’s called 9 Patch Delight. Mine looks a bit different because I used scraps…really old scraps and FQ’s from my stash. I think I cleaned out some of the oldest parts of my stash….I should have maybe used more tone on tones to give the eye a place to rest…..but it is what it is.IMG_8610 IMG_8611

This is the second HUGE quilt I have made recently and even though every thing worked according to the pattern instructions my quilt is a few inches bigger than the pattern is supposed to finish at? So my quarter inch seem must be off? I am not sure….but this was supposed to finish at 109 square…and I measured 114 square. Which is fine it doesn’t bother me….just have to have bigger backings. 🙂IMG_8619 IMG_8618 IMG_8617 IMG_8620
