Stash Busting week 27

Report time!!
Stash - 179 1/2 yrds
Old Stash counted - (will I ever get back to counting it!!!) lol! - 0
Fabric added - 1 1/4 yrd (friend gave me halloween stuff she didn't want!)
F.A.Y.T.D. - 19 1/4 yrds
Fab. used. - still at zero. I will have some numbers to show really soon though...
(yeah, and free beer tomorrow at your favorite pub!!!)

and my new stash total is as of today!!! drum roll please!!! 180 3/4 yrds!!!!

And here is the Halloween fabric she gave me!! I think a pillow case would work - or even another fabric bowl!! the only bowl I made (and loved doing it!! is out of halloween stuff!!!

And here are the last two big "Twilight" blks!! this project is on it's last legs!! I could start to put it together now - I still have those little friendship stars to do, but I have enough to at least start..... but I will make more, then start to put it up on the wall!!! I am so bloody excited to be getting to the end of these projects I have bee doing in bits and peices!!! that 20 min a day sewing is HUGE!! for me!!! Even on the days that I can only get that much time to sew, it really helps - like these blks - it was 3 days to do it, but I did it and that is what counts!! Here they are:

I thought that I would like the blue/purple pink the best, but you know what, I like the green and pink a bit more!!! I think because the blue blends into the background, kinda fades a bit (but I do like that effect too - especially when everyone is up and together......) the pink just pops off the blk!!

Ahhh, they are done!!! YEAH!!!!

Next I am going to show you the start to the Bonnie Hunter mystery in the Quiltmakers magazine. With two of my work-as-you-go projects now amost done, I had to fill in the empty!!

I have used up all my leader/enders just before this project came out!! And I do want it done in Christmas stuff - and looking at this bright/dull.... I have my doubts... but, I am not going to question it!! It's a mystery, and it will be just fine!!! And fun to do, so once I get more blks made up to sew together, it won't look so - weird I guess......

Onto the Quilt Show!!!

this is my friends quilt - she is a brand new quilter - and she is sewing up a storm!! Always asking us to do classes and loves the whole process. She actually quilted this one herself!!!! she is having a blast with her new 'hobby'!! Obsession is more like it, but it has helped her kick the smoking habit!! So hey, whatever it takes - go Girl!!!!

Bargello is on my list to do - and I will!!! I love 'em. A heart one though??? I am not sure. It sure is pretty though, and I do like it...... I just don't know. but I love 'em!!!!

This quilt just took my breath away, and I told the lady who made it, if she was ever going to consider getting rid of it, please think of me!! Beautiful!! And all made out of batik leader and enders!!! Absoulty gorgeous!!!!!!!!!

And this one hung on the back wall, center under a basketball hooo!!! It was a nice 'picture' to have hanging on the wall!!!

For a group of 15-20 people, and not everyone 'helped' - it was a very succeful show. Everyone has such a differnt eye, such diverse skills and such beauty. I didn't pick and choose my pics, I just walked down the line's and took a pic of each one as I passed, thinking I would be getting them all. Some of the ones I didn't get were stunning. And some just cute for the size of them!!! I loved being there all three days, and the people were so nice - from all over!!! Great time.

I have more pics for later!!! Stay tuned!!!


  1. I still love those Twilight blocks!

    You started the Mystery without me.....

  2. Thanks for the quilt show--those were gorgeous!

    I saw Bonnie's mystery quilt but haven't really read through it yet, so not sure if I'm going to start it, but congrats on getting going on yours!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have never seen a heart bargello. That would be interesting. I hope to finish my Lightning Strikes in the next few weeks. Going to work on it now!

  4. Your Twilight blocks look great, and I look forward to this Mystery!
    More wonderful quilts! Wow! Surprizing what a small group can do! 8-)
