My inaugural stash report is here! I have been collecting fabric for years, and I inherited some cool stuff from some friends and family - yay!
In July, I was visiting family and along the way stopped at several shops on the Row by Row Experience.
I bought something at each shop, and tried really hard to stay within my preset budget - but didn't quite make it ;) There is an assortment of fat quarters, half and full yard cuts, a new tool, and a spool of YLI hand quilting thread.
It turned out that some of the shops I intended to stop at were also involved in a smaller 15 store hop within Southern Ontario called the July Shop Hop. That hop was really cool in that by visiting each shop you received a free block kit. Each store had a display of the sampler quilt they made from each shops' blocks - some were on point, others straight, some with cornerstones, others without....I only went to 5 shops, but I had enough extra fabric by adding 2 fqs of my own to cut 9 blocks! Hopefully I'll have some progress to show on those soon!
In all, I had a great time, and some of these fabrics have already been cut into! Hopefully my stash will be slowly decreasing with time! Beginning next time I hope to show some going out - but I think there may be another fabric order on the horizon too.....
Current yardage: 593yd
Our little quilting group is making great progress this month on our Starry Night QAL, I'm the last to finish!
My latest memory quilt was delivered last weekend, and it's a cute one!
A new applique technique this month really challenged my fabric folding ability!
Starry Night QAL January blocks complete! Our group made 12 blocks last week for our new quilt along :)
Mary is a local quilting friend who loves to piece, but gets bogged down during quilting. These are 2 of the quilts I machine quited for her this spring :)
