I am quilting a little quilt top (60 x 70) for my sister Phyllis . She used the BQ Pattern by Maple Island Quilts. The good news for me, she used up some of my stash for the backing.
Yesterday, Phyllis and I headed north for a Gulf States Quilting Association Meeting. The speaker, Dorinda Evans is a prolific award winning scrap quilter -- WOW, she is an awesome scrapper!!! We brought Phyllis' twelve year old granddaughter Alissa, who made her first quilt at 5. Gulf States has opened their membership to Juniors, so of course we have signed her up. We actually came home with NO new stash. After an inspiring meeting, we were ready to come home and sew.
I also got to meet Donita from DT Quilts. It is so cool to meet the quilters we visit with regularly on line. Be sure to go drop by and tell her hello.
Here is my report:
Used (finished only): (20) yards
Used to Date: (116.40) yards
Purchased Year to Date: 126.50
Net: 10.1 yards --Goal is 150 yards.
This means, if I just finish what I have started and not buy anything, there is still a slim chance I will make it -- but I will sure give it a try.
For more stash reports, visit Judy at Patchwork Times -- where I will be linking up with others.
