Some of This, Some of That Week 38
Well I used 2 yards to make another B3Quilt.
This is a Moda pattern from their Go Big Block 2 booklet. Measures 32" square - just right for a preemie quilt. It went together fast although I didn't do it in rows as they suggested. I made the 5 nine-patch blocks that form an "x" in the middle of the quilt and then made the triangles in the center of the edges.
I liked the pattern so much that I decided to make the Raffle quilt for the Friends of the Library using this pattern to make a album quilt that will be raffled off Oct-December.
That's what's on my design wall barely. It's too big - LOL. Will measure 58" square. The very center block will have the family's name in the center. My daugher does great calligraphy and I'm going to ask her to write it in for us. But first we have to have a winner. Will take 3.75 yards from my stash.
Lastly, I've been going through my stash seeing if I can find fabrics to go with my RSC 2015 orange blocks. These are the ones I've picked so far. What do you think? Please advise. If I use all these it will be another 1/2 yard from my stash as most of this is from the St. Anne's stash. This baby quilt will go to them. It's going to be a simple quilt as I want to highlight the stars. So for my stash report I can say I'll have used 6.25 yards this past week for a YTD total of 81.20 yards de-stashed.
Slow stitching wise I have one more basket to do, and I will really start those leaves -lol. If only I'd stop finding things I have to do, I might make some progress on those WIPs.
I'm linking to Judy's Patchwork Times, Lyn's BOMs Away, Connie's Linky Tuesday, and Esther's Wow. Check them out. And leave me a comment - I'll come visit and see your goodies.
