That Girl's Quilt Along

Jennifer from That Girl, That Quilt is having a quilt along with weekly posts on her blog. It looks like a good one! Fast to make and, even better, stash busting! You'll need a charm pack (or 40 5" squares), and some solid fabrics. She's already gotten started, but is still in the beginning stages. Right now she's on the fabric cutting step. I have so many things going on right now, but I might have to sneak this one in...

You can find the previous posts here: First post (not the quilt in the picture), Week 1 (supply list), and Week 2 (cutting).

Design Wall Monday - 10/04/10

This Dear Jane block (J4) as well as block L12 are on my design wall right now. I am in between projects and I decided to make a couple of these since I haven't made any in quite a while. I started with this one because it was simple and I wanted to ease back into it. L12 was more difficult. Very small (foundation) piecing, which is done. Now I just need to applique four teeny tiny triangles onto the corners. I'm not great at applique and I'm not looking forward to doing such small pieces. Just gotta do it, though!

Stash Busting 2010 - Week 40

I haven't made a stash busting report in a while. I didn't do much sewing over the summer and then I started to lose track of what I had been using. I need to start using a spreadsheet to track as I go. I believe I've used about 5 yards since my last stash post. I made the entire pinwheel quilt and pillow from stash (yay!!). Now to figure out how much I've purchased. I'm pretty sure I've only bought 1/2 yard for a possible border that I didn't end up using. I've certainly looked at a lot of fabric online that I would love to buy!
