Stash Report 2012 – Week 16

Today I feel like death warmed over.  Been fighting a cold and this morning I have definitely been dragged behind enemy lines.  Yesterday was our guild’s sew Saturday and I made a jelly roll quilt.  Learned a valuable lesson.  After sewing the strips together, just kind of  make long arm-length folds.  DO NOT ROLL the strips. We spent about 20 minutes getting that fixed.  What can I say?  It seemed like a good idea at the time.

So I used my jelly rolls, gave away a jelly roll, gave away my UFO and some additional fabric, and made a back.  And got a fat quarter in an exchange.  Still in the red territory, but hoping I’ll change that this week.  And still within my goal.  Put a border on the X-block quilt, and made the backing.
Also, it was a pretty busy week–guild meeting, my volunteer week, very busy at work (worked late one evening).  So I didn’t have nearly the sewing time I normally would.

As I mentioned, my alligator quilt (was my UFO for February, and March, and I guess now April ) is still in progress and has actually made it onto my frame.  At present, I have quilted the top border.   It will be totally freehand quilted, no pantos.  I did a little light marking to help me place the background design around the applique.

  1. Congratulations on getting your alligator quilt on the frame. I know what you mean about fighting a cold. I’ve been doing the same thing for the last 3 days. Yesterday I finally surrendered. Maybe I should have done that sooner. I feel much better this morning.
