DWM Post Finally

I went to Paducah to see the AQS quilt show and had a wonderful time 🙂  I saw Quilt Man & Bobbin, enjoyed great meals with friends and indulged in way too much retail therapy…….but Gail Garber, in her lecture says we need lots and lots of colors to chose from so stash enhancement is needed 🙂 

Here’s what’s on my design wall for this last Monday in April.  Check out other design walls on Judy’s DWM post here

I made another Barbara Brackman Civil War BOW, number 26 Apple Tree.  Only 6 or 7 blocks more to go!

And got my April First Saturday block finished.

Now for the one and only picture I’ll show of how very, very bad I was in Paducah.

In my very weak defense, the red fabric on the bottom left pile is for a quilt backing and the gray/blue/yellow/white prints are for a baby quilt needed by July.  The rest, I have no defense…..


Stash Report –

  • Fabric in:  60 yards (Paducah, ‘nough said)
  • Fabric out: 0 yards
  • YTD Fabric in: 93.5 yards
  • YTD Fabric out: 20.5 yards
  • Net Fabric In/(Out): 73 yards (must remember the goal is no more than 25 net in 🙁 )

 Happy Quilting, Cherie

AAQI Pictures

After registering my three AAQI Priority quilts, I’ve been waiting for their pictures to be loaded.  I’ve checked the site almost every day and today was the the day the last two quilts were loaded 🙂  Check out 9650 and 9651.  Now I’ll be checking everyday to see when they move to either the “Quilts for Sale” page or to next month’s auction.  It’s getting a bit competitive to have a quilt in the auction so I expect mine will go to the “Quilts for Sale” page but then they would have a chance to go to Houston if they hang around long enough 🙂 

MIA Monday

I’ve been missing in action and thank you to those of you who came looking for me 🙂

First up, one of my AAQI Priority quilts, Squared, has had it’s photo loaded in the Quilt Waiting for Assignment page, woo hoo!

It’s Design Wall Monday so click over to Judy’s DWM post for links to other DWM posts.  I have a completed top for my design wall!  It’s a log cabin project from scrap club.   It is being inspected by Capser and Simontacchi because that’s their job, you know!

While I was MIA I participated in the St Louis Shop Hop with Darlene, Marilyn and Jeanne.  We had such a fun time and they’re still smiling at stop #11!

I was very good on the first shop hop day, but the second day……..well, here’s what I snagged.

The cute ice cream and laminated owl prints aren’t for me…they are going to Italy for my DD to play with.  I can’t resist scraps and grab bags with scraps, well I’m in heaven.  Cross Patches, our shop hop stop #12, had grab bags of scraps in a basket in the back of the store.  The stack of scraps on the right in the top photo is the pile of scraps I got…..they are a wonderful mix of fabrics and I love them!  I picked up a few other pieces of fabric…….looks like I’m gravitating towards gold/pumpkin colors, doesn’t it? 

I have been working on my hexie project on the train as I haven’t taken the time to prep my next applique block.  My flower garden is growing 🙂
