So I’ve been on vacation and I haven’t been quilting. What happens when I am not quilting? I buy fabric. Not all of the fabric I bought were purchased for quilting. I actually bought some for bags and clothes. But they all go in the same stash so I’m adding it. All 13 yards of it. 🙂 Which since one skirt can use about 2 yards is not that much at all.
The fabric stash:
- Used since last time: 0 yards
- Used year to date: 9.5 yards
- Added since last time: 13 yards
- Added year to Date: 36 yards
- Net ADDED for 2017: 26.5 yards
Slow Stitching Sunday
And for Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy at Kathy Quilts… I’m kind of done with Block 7 for A Rainbow Garden!
Here’s where I was last time:
Here’s where I am now:
I actually need to do some embellishments like french knots but I’m not feeling those at the moment. If I think it needs it later, I’ll add it. For now, I like where it’s at.
I have to get going on block 8 but that means pulling my UFO bin out of the closet and I do not know if I have the energy for that today. I may just do some binding on Missing Ivy since I’ve only got a week left in the month. I’m pretty close to being done so I can possibly get it done. I just have to do it.

Summer is a hard time to make progress on inside projects, like quilts. Enjoy your new fabrics.
I am sure that you can finish that binding. That is usually very mindless stitching. I am looking forward to seeing those bags and skirt.
Thanks Cathie! 🙂
Your block is beautiful as is!
Enjoy your binding… it’s my favourite!
Thanks Kathy! 🙂
That’s not a bad addition for vacation shopping. I do like your block, even if you never add a single French knot.
Thanks Susan! 🙂
Very pretty applique – love the colors!
