DWM and Blog Post 501

I didn’t notice at the time but my last blog entry was my 500th post.  Goodness, who knew I’d keep up with a blog….not me certainly.  It helps to track of information, like where to find the Bapron pattern 🙂 and how many projects I’ve worked on/finished (which are not the same thing) 😉  Design Wall Mondays, hosted by Judy at Patchwork Times, have been great at keeping me sewing, even if it’s one block, just to have something new to show.   It’s also given me the itch to make room for a larger design wall!  Click here to see Judy’s DWM post and check out what other quilters are working on. 

My wall has the new Grandmother’s Choice block, New Jersey: Suffrage Pioneer, the 5th block of her BOTW.

……and a 36 patch block……I’ve been wanting to make a quilt from 36 patch blocks ever since seeing Crazy Mom’s QAL in 2011.   How many will I make????

The Grandmother’s Choice block from week 4, Kansas Sunflower, is now in progress:

Hey, I didn’t say much progress, just some progress 😉 

I managed to get the backing for the Scrap Vomit quilt done and I made the binding too.  The top was finished quite a while ago using these blocks. 

Which is why I used red & black for the binding.

I used up some larger pieces of fabrics for the backing and I think it will look fine once it’s quilted……another terrible photo 🙁


So that brings us to the stash report…….


Stash Report –

  • Fabric in:  1 yards (GW jumper)
  • Fabric out: 7.5 yards (scrap backing and binding)
  • YTD Fabric in: 117.5 yards
  • YTD Fabric out: 66 yards
  • Net Fabric In/(Out): 51.5 yards and only 3 months left this year to get to my publicly stated goal of no more than 25 net in for 2012, YIKES.

Happy Quilting, Cherie
