This week was a week of work. I honestly didn’t get much done once I finished the binding on Orca Bay. Went to a guild meeting on Wednesday, and Friday and Saturday made a scrappy backing, cut binding, and quilted that jelly roll quilt. Once you sew the strips end to end, there are 5 seams. I decided not to show a picture of mine, because I bought a jelly roll from Ebay to make this and didn’t realize there were only 5 fabrics in it. So, it is not as attractive. I put a 3 inch border around it when complete. I made this quilt because 1) I have to make a cuddle quilt for the local women’s shelter anyway
2) As an example of what we can do on a workshop day so that other members can make their quilt to fulfil the above requirement.
Now, as to the stash situation. I had picked up a QOV to quilt last weekend when I was visiting my old hometown (I take them to quilt and eventually return them). Well, I should have looked in the bag. What was in there was not one top, backing and binding, but TWO slightly undersized tops. So……yesterday I ran to a local store and purchased fabric for an extra border, backing. and maybe binding for both tops. Then I threw that fabric in the washer for a quick wash. Pulled it out of the dryer late last night.
So, even though I am in “NET STASHED” territory at the moment, that will most likely change before the end of the week (perhaps even the end of this day).
