Stash Report - Week 11, 2012

For my stash report today, I'll have to say that I'm getting ready to use up a LOT of fabric.

Today is going to be for basting all the tops I can find that I have backs for. I'll be quilting them up because...


This is Emily. I chose the name because I thought that Emily sounded like a Sweet Sixteen girl, lol.

I'm SO excited to have her at last. She's a sit down 16" throat mid-arm.

I'm ready to work!

Here are some of the things I've been working on.

Make sure you check out all the stash busting going on at Judy's blog!

Design Wall Monday - March 5, 2012

On my design wall today is a practice piece.

I'm practicing channel quilting and I made up this practice piece to see what it looked like.

First I started by doing 45º angles together, but that didn't give me the look I wanted.

Then, I tried 45º and 60º criss-crossing...

That was more what I wanted...A diamond shaped crossing.

Here's a close up that shows the different things I tried and how I labeled them.

This was such a useful exercise! I got to see how my piece would look before I did it.

It's a lot better than what I usually do...Just fly over the cliff without looking and hope I don't fall too far, he he he. Maybe I'm growing up!?!?!?!

On another note, my HQ Sweet Sixteen is shipping TODAY! I am so excited, I can barely contain myself!

I really want to get some of my tops basted this week so I can just jump right in and quilt as soon as it gets here.

Make sure and stop by to see what everyone else is up to at Judy's blog.
