Stash Report – Week 8, 2015

I received 3 yards of backing for the secret project.  So I’ve added some.  I know I bought way too much fabric for this quilt but I didn’t like how it was turning out and had to get the right fabric for it.  I’d searched the LQS’s in my area but couldn’t find anything so I turned to the online options.  Unfortunately, sometimes you buy things and when they arrive the fabric (while pretty) isn’t the right shade.  🙁  So I have to buy something else.  Part of me wants to start a new project with the leftovers.  But my goal this year is to stay with consistent and committed to finishing one project at a time and that means I cannot start something new right now.  And I’ve got a list of projects to finish before I can start something new. We’ll see if my creative self listens to my logical self.  🙂  It’s already February and I haven’t started something new yet so things are starting on the right foot this year.  Then again, it’s only February.  Now is the time to do a small project to give myself the sense of something new but still have it done in one weekend so it doesn’t become another UFO.

Even though I’ve added I’ll be having some finishes soon.  This project will be done this afternoon and while the top to Tell It To The Stars will probably be finished this week (I’ve only got 3 sides of the final border left to do.)  I do not want to quilt it on Bailey, my mid arm, until I’ve practiced a bit.  So I’m going to add borders to my Month by Month quilt and use that as my practice quilt.  I may add the finished top to Tell It To The Stars since it is a finished top.  I’ll just have to remember to only add the backing and the binding when I actually finish it completely.  We’ll see how that goes.
