Stash Report – Week 04, 2018

So… Road happened and of course, I bought stuff.  I must say though that I didn’t go crazy like I could have gone.  I bought 6.5 yards of fabric and it’s fabric I couldn’t get here.  At least not easily.  I bought imported Asian fabric with fun prints. Here’s an example of what I got:

I love it. It’s linen and something I’ll probably use in a cute bag but I’ve been collecting linen over the last few years and haven’t used it.  I’m sure none of you do this! 😉  I do not know what I’m going to do with it yet.  I did spend a few hours this weekend making the back for Celtic Solstice and I’m almost done.  This past week I’ve been piecing scrap fabric together and making fabric.  I have enjoyed it.  At first, my intention was to use the made fabric for the back of Celtic solstice as these scraps were all the scraps from making the top.  But it was looking like a hot mess.  I was enjoying the piecing though so I kept going even though the more I did the more I decided not to use it for the back.  Now I’ve got a bunch of mini blocks that I could probably cut down to match them all to a particular size, attach it to coordinating strips and then create a little top. Or I can save them and create scrappy crazy quilts. I don’t know. But it’s gotten me out of my funk and into my sewing again.  So much so that I am almost done with my back. I ended up taking the larger chunks of Celtic Solstice fabric that I didn’t cut into and piecing the together.  I’m at about 93″ x 90″ and I need it to be closer to 120″ x 120″.  I believe my top is at 115″ x 115″.  It’s been awhile.  But that’s the measurement in my head.  I’m pretty sure it’s correct or at the very least not bigger than it. I had to connect with my Bernina dealer to make sure it would fit on their long arm for when I go in to quilt this.  So I’m getting closer to having a finished.  I hope that comes soon.

Slow Stitching Sunday

I have a family thing to go to today.  I’m going to try to get some stitching done today so we’ll see.  It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a picture of the block I’m working on for Rainbow Garden so here is where I am at the moment:
