Stash Report and Secret Quilt
Thought I didn't have anything to report but then I had to pull a piece for a sewing class today. Pulled out six yards to make a blouse and skirt! And .01 yards for the bits and pieces for LE. Here are my numbers:
in 0.0 yds.; out 6.01 yds.
Stash YTD: in 8.5 yds., out 92.42 yds.
Donated YTD: 40.96 yds
Net for 2013: out 83.92 yds
I'm linking to Judy's Patchwork Times to see how others are de-stashing.
And now for the secret quilt. I couldn't show it to you before in case my friend read my blog or we got it to her. She lost her husband quite suddenly (He was only 72). Bette (also a good friend and quilter) and I wanted to give her a quilt since we couldn't be there with her. Well now we can:
|Bette has this fabulous stash of flower fabrics. So instead of flowers, we sent her a flower garden.|
|Appropriately, I had bed of roses fabric for the back. The hearts you see together - the white one is for Val's DH and the other for her - forever together.|
|Bette found just the right words and printed them on fabric. I then added some flowers and a border and sewed it to the back.|
|Bette then tied the quilt. We bound it and sent it off|
We love you Val!
