Sunday Stash Quilting Report


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!

  1. This is absolutely lovely – they’re not color combinations I would normally think of, but it’s just beautiful! I love the quilting, as well. Simply gorgeous.

  2. You throw down a binding challenge after you have sewn it on to the front already??!!! LOL Something smells…. but it isn’t your quilt! It’s pretty!!

  3. That quilting design is perfect. But what I love the most, those fabrics look exactly like some fabrics in my Civil War Repro stash. My favorites. You have a beautiful quilt!

  4. I’m late in adding my comments – but your Gracie Star’s came out just beautiful. It’s been fun watching it come together. You really made it shine.

  5. Randi,

    Thanks for sending me the link so I could see your quilt. It is beautiful! I will have to bookmark this site and keep checking in on you and your latest creations.

    Take care,

    Susan Ziegler
