A funny thing happened earlier. I was thinking, Gee, I haven't posted to my blog in awhile. So I run downstairs to take a pic of my fabric stash and a backing that I have been working on. DH calls to tell me that gas will be going up .18 tomorrow and I should go fill the car up. So out the door the little guy and I go. Get back home and check Google Blog and there I see a quilt of mine. *S* My friend Mary at Quilt Hollow has posted to introduce my blog to her blogging friends. *S* Mary is the one that got me to start blogging a short while ago. She and I must have been sending vibes to each other, over the pond, to remind me to post. *S* Below is my fabric stash, although it's not all of it. This is just my favorites. I still have 1 or 2 totes full of fabrics that I bought over the years and aren't really what I want to use.
Just last weekend, I sent a couple of quilt tops to Mary to do her magic on. I still have 2 more that I am piecing backings for. While working on these backs, I've pulled out of my stash of older fabrics and some from the same lines that are in the tops. I noticed that some of my pieces of fabrics now have fold lines in them that are a bit lighter. So now, I'm determined to use up some of my stash and not let this happen again. Let this be a warning to you, either use it up, or re-fold from time to time. I went on and used a piece with those fold lines and figure that will be my humble part of this quilt and, also, a reminder to use up the stash. See the fabric in the lower right hand side. That's the lighter fold lines.
After I get these 2 backings done, I'm going to start cutting strips from my stash for a Lady of the Lake Quilt. I found the perfect border fabric in my stash and I used EQ software to design it out to see if I have enough. The blocks will be set on point and the border fabric will be the corner and side triangles. The fabric below is the border fabric that I chose. This from the Harvest Home by Brannock/Patek for Moda. I'm a big Moda fan!
Until next time......I have other quilts that I don't think I've even taken pics of yet. I'll get to that for my next post.
