October 7th Stash Report

This QOV will be sent to Alycia. I used 11.44 yards on this quilt.  I used the pattern found at Kim's Big Quilting Adventure with a few changes. I used a flag fabric for the center of the stars and I didn't add the last two borders. I really like the stars in the sashing.  It finished at 74 x 80 before washing.

Here are some of the blocks that I made for Margaret's Hope Chest. These are for the 4th and last project for the year. For pattern to make these blocks go to their website -

They were fast and easy to make.  You can make 3 blocks from two strips of fabric. The blocks ar 9.5 inches. The centers are 4 inches and the strips are cut at 3 1/4 inches. A good place to donate to. Used 1.5 yards.  Don't mind my messy cutting table - I am not really good at cleaning up between quilts.

Still thinking on what I want my goals to be in 2013. I know I will still make Quilts of Valor and quilts for Ronald's House.  Maybe there won't be any set goals, just make the quilts that  appeal to me, starting new ones or finishing up ones that have been started.

I also know that I DO NOT need to purchase any fabric ever again. The last couple of times I went into a quilt shop I couldn't find anything to buy (Kinda like going to the grocery store when you just had dinner) nothing even tempted me. Had a bunch of coupons for Joann's, pulled into the parking lot and didn't even stop.

I do want to take a paper piecing class. And in January I will place a ad in the paper to see if there are any quilters in my area who would like to get together.

Not sure if "Stash Reports" are something I want to continue. Does anyone else feel uncomfortable making them? Maybe uncomfortable isn't the right word.

This is really a special nice one. The flags in the center are a little unexpected.
