Stashbusting Report and Machine Quilting with Flat Stanley
Well the stashbusting is off to a good start. Zero purchased and 5 yards used so far – backing for the quilt pictured below with Flat Stanley.
I’ve added a link for this pattern, Braided Flannel Knots in the right sidebar under Weekend Projects. It’s got abbreviated instructions – cutting and placement image for one block, but not specific piecing instructions. It’s a simple block tho so you should be able to lay out your pieces and figure out the assembly easily. I think it would also make a really cute kids quilt with novelty prints in the large center square and coordinating fabrics for the “knotted braid.”
Flat Stanley has been helping me with some machine quilting. We’ve got this one about half way done. He also went out for breakfast to meet a friend of mine, but we forgot to take the camera along. There was only one minor incident, he was playing with a bobbin of thread and got himself in a bit of a tangle. :-)
A more progress has been made on the sock I had to rip out. I’m nearly back to where I was when I discovered the dropped stitch. Stanley is thinking one of those socks might make a good sleeping bag to sleep in.
