Today’s Quilting Project

  Here’s a corner of the quit top I pulled out of the crate to work on today.  This is just a largish lap quilt size that will be a charitable donation quilt.  It is made from fabrics that were swapped while attending a Romp in Texas Hill Country – a TQP retreat at the T Bar M Ranch, New Braunfels, Texas.  One of the swapw we did there was a fat quarter swap of Texas and western themed fabrics so I cut them up to make this scrappy quilt.  I pulled together a couple pieces of blue fabrics to make the backing – one being the horeshoe and flower print used in the quilt blocks – and pieced a backing for it and got it layered this morning. 

I’ve now got about a quarter of the center of the top quilted and the gold border stitched in the ditch.  The center is just quilted with meandering loops and stars in a gold thread.  Hmmm… can I get this one all quilted and binding attached so I can hand stitch on it tonight?  Maybe, I don’t know for certain…. but I do know for certain that it’s way past lunch time and I’m hungry so time for a break!

Stashbusting Report 5/27 and Camp Loopy update

Well that’s truly annoying – apparently wordpress is up to it’s old tricks of deleting text and images and sending out a blank post.  So let’s try this again! 😦

 First – Pinwheel Posey is is finally completed  – binding finished and all.  Not only was it my May UFO Challenge project but it is also one of the Quilts from the Crate so now I’ve got I think 5 of the tops from that crate pulled out and finished — tho many more to go.


Only 1/2 yard used this week for binding so 30 yarrds purchased YTD; 41.75 used; net busted 10.75. 

 Then  there was the start of Camp Loopy at 12:01 a.m. and of course I was still up so got started on my project and worked on it for oh about three movies worth of time. LOL

I wasn’t sure if my choice of Zauberball yarn would look good in the scarf – I was afraid the transition from color to color would be more abrupt but as you can see in the scarf photo – it’s turning out so pretty.  As it transitions to the next shade, both colors are twisted together for a while so it moves gradually from shade to shade.  I absolutely love it.
