Weekends always seem to fly by, maybe even more so when they are 3 day weekends. We goofed off on Friday. My Guy and I took a drive over the hills and through the plains to a small town with a quilt shop I'd never been too. It was a very nice place, small but with a reasonable selection of fabrics. As you'll see in the stash report in a sec, I did some significant damage. But I have plans for all the fabric that came home. The only sewing this week was for the McCall's Mystery Quilt. Most of the week has been spent on planning and laying out the next two Fat Quarter Stars blocks for the Moose on the Porch Quilt along.
A new project is also in the planning stages. I've been wanting to participate in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge since last year, but never came up with a project. I wanted a scrappy project that would require one or two scrappy blocks a month. Inspiration struck this weekend and last night was spent roughing out a quilt plan in EQ. I'm behind since I missed January, but I'll catch up before the end of the year. I'm going to start on February's green blocks today.
So not much sewing this week, just lots of planning. So the stash report looks really lopsided.
Used last week: 0.41 yards
Added last week: 21 yards
Used for 2012: 4.3 yards
Added for 2012: 51.5 yards
Net stashed for 2012: 47.2 yards
So what came home?
These are going to be paired with a set of embroidered blocks I dug out of the sewing closet Thursday night. If you read Friday's post, these will be paired with the goose blocks.
I feel in love with the black, rust and beige print on the right. I have a lot of 2.5" rust strips left over from a previous project that will go beautifully with that print. The solid black is for my planned Dresden Plate project. I'm not sure how well that's going to work out, but I've always wanted to use a black background with brights. We'll see if that works.
So over the weekend, I've added 3 new quilts to my quilt "play list" for 2012. Guess I better get busy sewing!
