Hooray! I have finished several things just in time to count them for the end-of-the year report!
We had the annual Christmas fair at school, and I made bags again — this time in several sizes. The small gift bags were the best sellers, especially the ones sized to hold DVDs and CDs.
I also made the usual grocery-shopping sized bags in bright fabrics. Here is my table in the corner of the school hall. A coat rack makes a great display for hanging bags!
I made this green String Quilt top for a friend and have already pieced the backing. Now it just needs quilting and binding.
And best of all, I finished the purple and green Puss in the Corner quilt in time to give it as a gift on Christmas Eve. It has gone to our older daughter’s long-time boyfriend, who admired the colours when I first started working on it, many months ago. He was really pleased to have it.
The full-length picture turned out a bit dark, but here’s one during the quilting that shows the true colours better:
I quilted this project using a Continuous Curve motif designed by Carla Barrett. Then I went back and stitched a quarter inch inside the edge of each large centre patch. The backing was pieced using large left-over pieces of green and purple fabrics.
All that activity brings me back into positive numbers! Here are my totals:
Bought this report: 0
Total fabric in this year: 54 yards
Used this report: 32 yards
Total used this year: 76 yards
Total (net): 22 yards
Thank you, Judy Laquidara, for hosting the Stash Report. I would like to continue participating in 2011 and hope to be more regular in my reporting.
Happy New Year, everyone, and Happy Quilting!
