May 2nd, 2010 - Stash Stuff Week #18

This is really a non-report because nothing quilting happened this week except I added some fabic. I was a busy bee this week, getting my son organized for his trip to New York , taking my mom to the doctor, an appointment at the bank and haircuts. Busy, busy!

Fabric added this week: 1.75 yds

Fabric added YTD: 56.95 yds

Fabric used this week: 0 yds

 Fabric used YTD: 100.29 yds

Net fabric busted: 43.34 yds

 I went to a sewing show yesterday  and  I got this pattern from Bigfork Bay Cotton Company and they have some really neat patterns. There was this other one that caught my eye but when I saw the tulips I switched them. I can always get the other one once I complete this one. I picked up 7 fat quarters for this and hopefully I have enough other colours in my stash to complete this.


I also picked up this pattern by Frieda Anderson and boy, does she have some really cool patterns! I had a hard time choosing which one I liked  best. All the  patterns had a bonus pattern with them except this one. Oh well, what can I say? I thought this one fit in with my stuff the best.

 I also picked up this gadget, threads and wool pieces.The black thread is a 12 weight for some blackwork and the white is for machine piecing. That tool is for making cording. I’ve always wanted one to make the colour cording that I want but I never got around to buying one. And Roxanne’s glue baste is a wonderful tool. I use it instead of pins when appliqueing or sewing labels on the back of a quilt. Great stuff!

So now I should start sewing up a storm. I say that every week but this last week has been a no-go in the sewing department. Hopefully this week I can get something done. No appointments yet but you never know who’s going to call. Have a great week!

    Nice patterns…. I always like to buy the flower ones, even though I have never made one. One of these days, right?

    Some weeks we just have to take care of family. That is what matters most. Then some weeks we get to sew. You picked up some wonderful patterns. I can hardly wait to see what you do with them. Don’t you love quilt shows? I am glad you had fun.

    Those patterns are wonderful! I love Frieda’s stuff. I use that glue-baste too!
