Just Back from the Quilter – Vicksburg!

I just received my Vicksburg quilt back from Terri Kanyuck, who did an outstanding job quilting it.  This was a free BOM from Dawn Hesse of Linen Closet Quilts.  Dawn’s finished quilt can be seen here and here.  I only used fabric from my stash, as Dawn encouraged and I’m so happy with the results.

Really, Terri’s quilting is wonderful and really makes this quilt sing! Check out these close ups.

I couldn’t be happier.  I think I’ll try my hand at blocking this top, something I’ve not done before, as I’m toying with the idea of entering it in a quilt show.

Hey, it’s Design Wall Monday and here’ what’s on my wall.  Quite a bit has happened in the sewing arena since I last posted 🙂

More Grandmother’s Choice and First Saturday blocks.  More on those later 🙂


Stash Report for 2012 –

  • Fabric in:  3.5 yards
  • Fabric out: 0 yards 
  • YTD Fabric in: 150.75 yards
  • YTD Fabric out: 79.25 yards
  • Net Fabric In/(Out): 71.5 yards – quite a bit more than my goal of 25 yards but then there really isn’t a penalty for overdoing it 😉  And really, who turns down the opportunity to purchase out-of-print Ami Simms fabric??

And you certainly don’t say no to Christmas gifts of fabrics!

As for 2013, well, there’s been a few thrifted shirts acquired but at $0.79/lb, that’s not being bad, just THRIFTY!
