Stash Report March 25th

I have been absent from reporting for a while.  I am going to catch up tonight.  I was on a wonderful retreat and accomplished quite a bit but that part of the report will have to be for next week.

I did purchase border fabric, binding and backing fabric for the purple quilt I am working on and a lovely FQ because it was white and blue.

While on retreat, my friends gave me my birthday presents early.  We are trying this year to reduce the $$ involved in these presents.  One in particular gift was a great upcycle project.  My friend, Linda, used a denim jumper and part of a sheet that she found at Goodwill.  She got 2 aprons out of the jumper.  My present was from the front.  Iwill try to get a photo of the other apron which she added patchwork to for embellishment.

A camping we will go

I'm am getting ready for quilt camp this weekend.  Thursday can't get here soon enough.  I have several UFO's in mind to work on as well as a new quilt top for a baby gift.

My current leader and ender project only need 7 more 4 patches and then the blocks are ready to assemble.  This is a Can of Worms quilt from Debby Caffrey.  The UFO must be 6 or so years old.  It is currently on my design wall.  I don't think I will be adding any borders.  This is for my SIL, Pam.

The baby quilt will be using Judy L's pattern Peaches and Cream, however, it is not a monochrome quilt.  It will be interesting to see how it works up with multiple fabrics.

I have not done much sewing recently and my stash reports have become very boring.  I am hoping to change that by the time the retreat is over.

Check out the other design wall reports.
