Sunday Stash Report - Week 8

Another very busy week around here!  Lots of sewing for the new patterns as well as a few other things. Friday I headed to The Village Quilter for a sewing night with some members of the Philly Modern Quilt Guild.  I had a great time... and of course I did some shopping!


3 yards of Central Park by Kate Spain
{yes more central park... I'm kinda hooked}

4.5 yards of County Fair by Denyse Schmidt... and it was on sale!!

6 yards of other fabric

and I bought a jelly roll from my own business
I know that sounds funny... but I keep my personal stash and business inventory separate.



I made a mug rug for the Philly Modern Quilt Guild swap.

We had a great time swapping mug rugs.  Andrew wrote a recap of it on the PMQG blog.

I cut up lots of fabric for these blocks.  I'm making "The Tempest" by Cherry House.

Lots & lots of fabric out for my new quilts... & if all goes well with the photo shoots this week you'll be seeing them by the end of the week!

4 yards out of Nest flannel by Tula Pink to be used as backing for my Nest braid quilt.  I blogged that I had the borders on this quilt back in May of 2009... eek!  So why didn't It get quilted and finished back then?...

This is why!
eek!  I actually cut a hole in the quilt top... accidentally of course.  At the time I was so upset and didn't know what to do that I stuck it in a box and figured I'd come up with a plan later.  Well almost 2 years later and I don't want to let it stay in a box any longer... so I have a plan and I'm going to as Tim Gunn would say... "Make it work!"

I know you are very busy but I hope you share with us how you fix that hole. There are many of us who are in a similar situation and would love a possible solution. Thank you, in advance, if you have the time. Can't wait to see that pile of quilts.

Vicky said...

Your numbers are phenominal! Okay, you're my official hero du jour! xo

Karen H said...

Fun stuff! I so wish there was a Modern Quilt Guild in my area..... but I live out in the boonies.

Jennifer said...

I can't wait to see that quilt in the pile with the blue flowered binding...from what I can see I love those fabrics, I would love to know what they are!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Your Nest braid is gorgeous and I'm sure you'll make it work!
Waiting to see that stack of quilts for your new patterns - wow!

Jackie's Stitches said...

I cut a little hole in a wall hanging I was making. Given the amount of work I'd already put into it, I just couldn't start over. So like you, I made it work. I just made the fmq'ing a little bit more dense there. It's not perfect but it doesn't jump up and don't shouting "look at me" either.

I hope you have a great photo shoots with that stack of projects because it looks interesting!

Becky (My Fabric Obsession) said...

Wow, impressive numbers. I can see why you needed some sweatshop workers to help! bummed I couldn't make the sewing night. Hopefully next time.

Marti said...

I agree, very impressive numbers. Cutting that quilt would have made me sick. Hope you get that piece replaced or appliqued in a way that makes you happy with it again.

You have really been buzzing along. Can't wait to see that stack of quilts Julie. I am anxious to get back to quilting but more baby stuff to do first. Good things I get lots of cuddles in return. As for central park, its going to be the inspiration for the nursery. my daughter loved it too.

Angie in SoCal said...

Almost 100 yards - wow. LOL I'll be happy to get to 10.

Look forward to seeing your quilts.

Alexis said...

I too want to see how you fix the hole, I'm hoping to learn something.

Jennifer said...

Wow, amazing numbers and great projects to boot!

Angie @ CraftedAngles said...

Great stash report! This is a huge number. You have been quite busy!! I also started a stash report. It has been two weeks so far.

Amanda Murphy said...

I love how different all the quilts are - just looking at your stacks makes me happy!

Tricia said...

Awesome progress! It was a very good week for you. Can't wait to see that Nest quilt finished though!
