Juststitchin, Justknittin, Justhandwork of all kinds…..
First and most importantly,
Happy Mother’s day to my Mom!
The sun is shining here and the birds are singing so it’s a very nice day here in the mid 60’s – especially nice to see the sun since rain is predicted for most of the rest of the week. In Arizona – Mom is probably having a very hot day and wishing for some of our rain.
As for the stashbusting report — not much added to it this week. 3/4 yards used for binding and framing strips. But nothing purchased either. Hopefully I’ll be adding some backings on to next week’s progress and get another top or two layered.
However, I did manage to get three baggies of leftover blocks busted out of the UFO boxes and combined into a top so that was good–just didn’t require much other fabric added to it other than a couple framing strips.
Here’s the combination of the batik Kats, the framed bricks and the framed triangles. I think 4 years or so sitting in the stash was long enough for them. So all the Kats were used, all except about 5 or 6 bricks and 7 triangles were left over. I just need to attach the triangle borders to the sides of the quilt and then I think I’ll call that one done – leaving the angled corners. I did keep 6 of the triangles and made this little piece..
Don’t know what I’ll do with it – potholder, candle mat or table center piece, or maybe just a little wallhanging that will go on my office cubicle wall. Who knows – but the rest of the left over blocks have hit the waste basket.
And check these out – I’m waiting for them to cool to see if I’ve perfected my chocolate chip/orange scone recipe. I used mini chips this time instead of chocolate chunks — much easier to quickly fold them in tho I may have got a bit carried away with how many I added — but they’re little chips right??
Time to get to some sewing — get those borders attached and then maybe dig through the UFO baggies again to see what I can come up with next — oh yes, and refill my coffee cup and taste test those scones! 🙂
Denise , your mothers day quilt is stunning!
Thanks Betsy. I may have to contemplate actually making one similar to it. I love tulips.
I love how the Cat and Brick quilt is coming out. What a creative way to use all those blocks.
Love your quilt! And um, friend – you can NEVER have too much chocolate!!! – kind of like fabric LOL
Thanks – but too much fabric is much better for me – less fattening than too much chocolate. LOL
Those scones sure do look delicious. Would you be so kind to share the recipe, please.
I’ll post it when I get a chance.
love both KAT projects. This quilt is a good combo of extra blocks. The topper is purr-fect! . I soooo need to get the last of my blocks set into something useful. That’s a project for another day…maybe one that includes WWanda to help me sew 🙂
