Sunday Stash - 02/26/17

I've fallen down the rabbit hole...just kidding. But I have purchased more fabric. I have also used lots of fabric too. I had high hopes of having lots more finished, but alas I was distracted by squirrels. I finished quilting Mecca's Courtyard Tiles quilt and had planned on binding it on Tuesday. But as I was preparing an area to cut it (it is bigger than anything I've ever done before), I was moving some things around and Sharla and I got distracted looking for some floor lamps. We wasted a ton of time, because what we liked wasn't available around here, and what was available we didn't like. So the quilt didn't get bound. But since it is finished quilting I get to count the front (because it hasn't been counted before) and the backing. Here is a peek at it as I came off the long arm.

I did get started on piecing the matching pillow shams and I've made some good progress on them. If all goes well I will be quilting them next weekend at the latest. I did have to purchase a little more fabric for them. I could have squeaked by with what I had, but there wouldn't have been much variety in them and I want them to look good. So here is what I bought.

Here are the numbers for this week.

Fabric Used this Week: 23 1/4
Fabric Used year to Date: 61 1/8 yards
Fabric Added this Week: 2 1/2 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 8 1/2 yards
Net Fabric for 2017: 52 5/8 yards used

I'm working on binding Mecca's quilt and finishing the piecing of the shams this weekend. I hope to finish both by next Sunday. Also Sharla is almost finished with her February project and hopes to finish it today. As of right now I'm hoping this is my last fabric purchase for a bit, but who knows, I could win the lottery and go hog wild. I am linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times - Sunday Stash and Sunday Stash #217 with Molli Sparkles. I hope ya'll have a wonderful week.


  1. Congrats on the finish--pretty quilt!

  2. It's looking great. Good luck with the pillow shams.

  3. I love your finished quilt. Also love your fabric you bought for the pillow shams. They are going to be gorgeous pillow cases. What is the line of fabric called?

  4. It can be very easy to get distracted! I will be slowly coming back to quilting after being away for 10 days for QuiltCon. Mecca's quilt looks lovely and I hope the binding goes on smoothly.

  5. Congrats on a finishing the quilting on a gorgeous quilt and on such great stash numbers.
