So, I will stay at the 25 yds. out plan again this year, Beth!
Sounds great!!!! I am going to shoot for 75 yards.
Hi Ginny, I only finished a bit of the cross-stitch embroidery on the Duck blocks. My cleaning lady gave me 2 vintage embroidery packages with the blocks done that were on offer for free in her apt. I enjoyed finishing it into a quilt someone would love. The colours are all the embroidery on the blocks. I used a beautiful bright flowered fabric that I bought at the QOV garage sale on the back - no scraps! But there are lots of green scraps in the sashing, cornerstones and scrap binding. The light green fabric with the butterflies I bought on sale from CT several years ago. It has a few little flaws like 2 small stains and a few faded blue ink stains that must have been there for a while.
Well, I am not moving real fast yet. Been doing customer quilts. I have the backing ready for the two completed tops. Once my backlog is done, which should be this weekend, I can quilt some of mine and get them off to the binder.
I am working on the wedding dress, putting some bling on the embroideries. It got accepted into the Mid Atlantic Quilt Show in West Virginia. Hoping to win a ribbon there.
Now that is busting some stash girl.
I was a bad girl, decided I needed to make a double irish chain quilt for someone and bought a couple yards of fabric in red.
Great job Elizabeth. You are on a roll girlfriend.
I did a no no, I had to buy a few blacks for a project I am making. I seem to be running out that color lately. It is only one yard, a 1/3 of three blacks.
Working from my scraps stash right now. I am making a scrap strip quilt. It should be done in the next day or two if I keep at this pace. Have to do some bookwork and a customer quilt but it is making great tv time with hubby. he has let me set up the sewing machine in the living room with him. How sweet. LOL
I just posted my Half-Framed 4 Patch and its Scrappy Pieced backing. Then, I lost them. Anyway if you find them they are another entry for the Stash Busting 2020 Challenge.
They are not at my house yet. LOL
