petthefabric: I love your choice of fabric, also. Lucky daughter.

petthefabric 02-24-2021 05:59 PM

Thanks for the encouragement

Great use of color, petthefabric!

This picture is the width of the twin matress top, and a little longer. It's sewn together. Now to add the skirts. The height of our bed is 24". I have plenty of yardage to add 20". Daughter said 12" or longer. What do you think?

I feel the need to go into the lion's den. My LQS had to relocate - lost their lease downtown - the landlord found it more profitable to rent to a marijuana shop. I have not been in the new store and want to check it out. Do I need anything? NO! If I go in, will I find something I want? Could be.

To help support the new location (and satisfy your curiosity) you can buy notions(ie rotary blades, needles, thread etc) and not add to your stash...just sayin' Irishrose2

Pet TF it is going to be fabulous!

Conchalea 02-25-2021 12:34 PM

Tuesday K & I went to our county's LQS because she had a birthday coupon & I had one for an enticement to come back after an absence of 2 months. I bought a yard + for a border around my Star of the Show UFO. I have some leftover fabric from the blocks, but not quite enough for the border I wanted. I also have enough for the full backing so shouldn't need anymore fabric. Hooray!

I don't need any of those, either. I could buy some plain black - they are the ones that carry my favorite - Northcutt Blackest Black. I don't have any plain white, either, but in truth, I rarely use it.
I am expecting some bad news tomorrow - I see some retail therapy coming up.

Irishrose2: Prayers being sent.

I like to pick up FQ’s for blenders...cheap enough and doesn’t take up a lot of space. Hoping tomorrow goes well..lifting prayers!

Irishrose, thinking of you and sending virtual hugs your way.

What 241 9P's look like!

Pleased to say I have the 9P's cut from the 1 1/2" bins all sewn together for the strip quilt.

Conchalea 02-28-2021 06:25 AM

Congratulations OK! Do you have any small.squares left now?

And I still have lots of strips!

Question: If we leave blocks such as OK's 9p in a jar like hers, with other squares in similar colors, will the 9p reproduce as fast as other scraps?

I think I had better put a lid on it and seal it up; what do you think?

retiredteacher09 02-28-2021 04:24 PM

oksewglad: I would say the hardest part is done for your quilt. I like the way you have them in the large jar.

Conchalea and oksewglad; Thanks for the chuckles. I needed that today. :)

froggyinNewMexco 02-28-2021 04:26 PM

Haven't bought any fabric, Found fabric for backing for five quilts of various sizes in my stash, took them to the long armers, had to mortgage the house to pay for the quilting, and don't miss any fabric. I think it is breeding!

You're welcome, Connie...hugs. But now I have to dive into scraps and look for same number of 3 1/2" neutrals and then decide if the fabric I was planning on using for the unpieced strips will look good with them!

froggyinNM...wow 5 quilts; good for you!

Chuckling here!!

I am so pleased that I am working on precuts... I have 3 projects going that involve the vast amount of my Tilda fabrics.....and a bolt of 9 yards of a Tilda solid that I should use all of it by the time I’m done. my precuts are dwindling..yah!

This is completed and used up a bunch of my gray and white bolts. Still have a bit of each left but I use these colors frequently so I should blast through each fairly soon. Then...tackle the other bolts of gray and white. Lol.. This is a King size Buffalo Check for our bed. I used 2 layers of batting...wool and cotton... super warm and poofy...

oksewglad 03-01-2021 07:48 PM

Well done, Teen. Quilting complements the pieced top so well.


retiredteacher09 03-01-2021 09:28 PM

Thanks oksewglad! My DMIL always said that you never stop worrying about your children. 🙂. One needed to find a different vehicle so we were sharing my car for a week and the other one was interviewing for a job promotion. Vehicle was found and promotion was given. 👍

Teen: Lovely quilt. That will be super warm.

They look great! I was thinking that my pipes of scrap squares is starting to bulge out of it's container. Time for it to achieve it's destiny in scrap quilt glory!

jmoore 03-02-2021 03:47 AM

WMUTeach, thank you for the link to Lori Holt’s stars...yours look great and nice cuddly crib quilt.

Petthefabric, I really like your quilt and fabric choice...where did you find the California fabric?

Teen, fabulous quilting on your gray and white quilt...it is very sophisticated.

I recently purchased a bolt of Kona white solid when Greenfairyquilts had a sale but since I have a small stash, it will come in handy for background and sashing in future projects.

rryder 03-02-2021 04:39 AM

Wow, Teen, that looks great. Love the quilting on it, too.

Rob

Teen 03-02-2021 09:05 AM

Thank you, everyone.

jmoore....That bolt of white is the perfect bolt to have, in my opinion. All of my bolts are mostly fabrics for blenders, background, or backing....colors I use often. Good to have..

petthefabric 03-02-2021 09:15 AM

jmoore; the fabric has names of all the states. Since they moved from California to Florida I thought it fit. Bought it on-line, but don't remember store. Selvage says, "Windham Fabrics presents 'Across the USA' Origional Artwork C Michael Mullan Licensed, by Wild Apple Pattern #52206 C OEKO-TEX".

Teen, your buffalo check is beautiful! Congrats on plowing through your pre-cuts.

thank you...I’ll see if It is still available.

Posted this in pictures...a January UFO finish that used 9 yards of stash fabric in setting, border, binding and backing not counting the 9P blocks.

https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictur...g-t314592.html

Almost finished with a top made completely from stash...yippee more fabric gone.

retiredteacher09 03-04-2021 06:39 PM

Oksewglad: Great finish and use of yardage. Wahoo!

rryder 03-05-2021 03:23 AM

Congratulations on using up stash, finishing a UFO and creating a beautiful quilt!

oksewglad, those wee, tiny 9 patches are something. I have friends doing the OMG quilt and this reminds me of the little intricate blocks. What an beautiful accomplishment! Like your green background to unify the whole piece. Stand and take a bow. Lovely.

Julienm1 03-05-2021 04:08 AM

Finished the last block for PL last night. Only 30 were needed so went really fast. Now waiting for sashing fabric that I ordered from Marshall's. USPS has been waiting for the package since Monday. Luckily I have other projects to work on until it gets here. https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images...es/biggrin.png

Thanks WMUTeach...True confession time. I've started cutting for the OMG quilt. Been making 4P as leaders and enders on the quilt I finished last night. I need 444 of them which measure 1" finished and they are all coming from my 1" bin. When you start with a 1" square and end up with a 1/2" block three fourths of the fabric is in the seam allowances!

Julienm1 03-05-2021 07:01 AM

Found black fab that works for sashing. Let the sewing begin!
