Fabric Fast Stats

So it’s been a few weeks since I posted a Fabric Fast Stat…weird. I told you that August was weird for me. I have been working on more hand sewing than machine sewing…..it’s a nice welcome change. It doesn’t require lots of yardage…but I do find a satisfaction in hand embroidery. It’s very relaxing…kind of like reading. Although it’s not helping with my new found TV addiction. If I keep adding series to my list…I may have to quit my day job just to keep up on the tv. *wink*

I decided I have to try to finish one of my OOOOOOLLLLLDDDD embroidery projects before I start a new one. So I am about halfway through a baby quilt. I maybe have to work on a few of my UFO’s until October because I am going to start a  Sue Spargo Class ay my LQS and that will keep me busy. I also signed up for the Sue Spargo Craftsy class…..so I could technically start on my Butterfly quilt as well. I may do that…I just haven’t exactly decided on what color background I want to make for my butterflies yet.

I have also tried to make it a personal goal of mine to have all of the projects I started this year..actually quilted. not just sitting in the the bins waiting to be quilted…..I don’t have that much time left in the year……but it’s good to have a goal. I am doing pretty well so far.

 

Fabric Count  424+4+4+.5+5 =437.5 yards used.

I used 4 yards for the love quilt (front, back & binding)

4 yards for the Gilmore Chickies (front, back & binding)

(I chose a low number for those because I used scraps for the backings on those)

.5 for Clarissa’s Embroidery project.

5 yards of flannel backing for my asterisk quilt. I pieced all I had left of flannel for the backing on that quilt…….I want to get it quilted this week. I am trying to decide between an all over flower design or a simple custom design……or wavy lines? It’s difficult to decide. But it’s a scrappy quilt that I love…it’s not perfectly pieced…so I can’t go crazy custom. as soon as I decide it will be finished. 🙂

 

It’s weird again..I have not been posting my doll quilts here on my blog…I will start doing that. But I am running a Doll Quilt swap on Fb and I make a new DQ each month…and our group is doing so well. It’s so much fun!  If you would like to join our monthly swap…please friend me on FB. You can opt in or out each month as your schedule dictates. All skill levels welcome.
