I have stash reporting this week! I finished the quilting on my Gracie’s Star quilt. The pattern is from http://www.quiltintia.com. I quilted it with Jodie Beamish’s Rosie panto. Seems I use that one a lot, but this is the only quilt of my very own with it. Today I got the binding stitched to the front, ready for nighttime snuggling under it, while I do the hand stitching, watching TV. I used 8 yards backing and binding. I am going to enjoy using this quilt. It just makes me feel good.
I used the red in this star for the binding.
I love this fabric, that is in some of the blocks, and I used it for backing, also.
I’m getting kind of antsy to start some new projects, but I’m trying to make myself finish some first. I want some finishes before this year is finished! I do need to start a commissioned baby quilt soon, though. I keep forgetting about that, and the baby is due the end of January. Better start picking some fabric from my stash for that!
My Mom delivered the comfort quilt I made, for our friend with breast cancer, to her today. She loved it. She had a mastectomy a week ago Thursday. The test results have revealed that she had two different cancers in that breast. There will be some chemo, but I think the prognosis is still good. She has an appointment tomorrow, so maybe we will know more after that.
I’ve had a wonderful weekend, here at home, with my family. I hope yours has been good, as well!
