Sunday Stash - 06/18/17

Happy Father's Day to everyone. My wonderful father is in heaven today, hopefully smiling down on us. I still miss him. But he would want me to be happy not sad, so let's talk about things that make me happy...and you guessed it quilting.

I'm happy to say I the numbers are going in the right direction because I've shown off my flimsy of Hollywood's zombie quilt. It is a really simply quilt, but since he is a dog, I'm guessing he won't care one way or the other. This way it shows off the cute fabrics. And I did learn something with this quilt...zombie's can't climb trees.  I'm not sure that helps me much because I can't climb them either.


Now Sharla and I also kept up with our #100days100blocks2017 this week. As of yesterday we were through block 42, yes that means we are over 40% done and we are still going strong...well I am. We both picked out the fabric we want to use for the sashing, but won't purchase it until later unless is goes on sale.  Here are my blocks for the week.


Sharla is not enjoying the HST or snowball corners, so last Tuesday, I did all of those pieces for her. I didn't trim the HST or put any of the blocks together. I just sewed the diagonal seams and put them in a baggie for her.  She still doesn't love the blocks, but they aren't driving her as crazy as they were. Here are her blocks from last week.


Sharla still needs to work more on her Bistro quilt, but I know if she puts her mind to it she can get it done. Luckily I can count my finish now that it has been shown. So let's talk numbers.

Fabric Used this Week: 3 1/4 yard
Fabric Used year to Date: 121 3/4 yards
Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 68 yards
Net Fabric for 2017: 53 3/4 yards used

Not bad in my books, would I like it to be a bigger number sure, but at least we're in the black. I know we will be buying some fabric in July when we open and count our piggy bank savings. We've already picked out some of what we want. But we are also going to be good and use some of the money to service our sewing machines. I am linking up with Quilt Paint Create, and you can join in too, just check out her linky party.

  4. Hi, I think you have showcased your zombies perfectly with the sashings around the blocks. I never knew you could get such fabrics. I love the two different colour collections in your new blocks. Really shows the effects of colour choices. Lovely quilting.
