This is Moda's "The Boat House." It's going in the "Quilts for Sailors" bin for the next Sailor to earn the Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist badge.
This one, "Lakeside Gatherings" will be for the December Jelly Roll Party at Ruth's Stitchery.
Here is Cozy Quilt's photo of the pattern. Won't this jelly roll be perfect?
Elder Son says "It's OK to buy it just because you think it's pretty." So I did. Winterlude, by 3 Sisters for Moda, goes in the "undesignated jelly rolls" bin.
My friend Lori brought me this lovely birthday prezzie this week. I think I'll use it to stash the sand dollars and shells I picked up at the beach in September.
Inside were a yummy scented candle and soap (which is lending its fragrance to my yarn stash at the moment) and this cool lighted, magnifying seam ripper. I'll report later how it works -- but what a great idea!
I found the little pink pincushion at the Creative Needle in Denver. It fits into the thread holder on the top of my Viking sewing machine. Clever, huh?
We made a second stop on the way home from Front Range Modern Quilt Guild yesterday, at High Prairie Quilts. I almost panicked when I didn't see this fabric where it had been displayed last time I was in the shop -- I need it to finish my Five is Fabulous sampler. Whew, the shop had just been re-arranged!
I took a bunch of patterns I decided "I will never sew this" to quilt guild yesterday. And I decided "I will never finish this quilt," so it becomes this week's "De-Stash" offering.
Sixteen of the LeMoyne Star blocks are finished, and most of the 100 HSTs. The printed setting triangles are included, but you'll need to add some more 30s repros for the center medallion. Knowing me, the background is Kona Snow.
If you haven't seen the 52 Quilts De-Stash before, here's how it works. If you'd like to add this quilt to your own stash, just:
- Comment on this post with your PayPal email address and your zip code.
- The first commenter who completes Step 1 wins the kit! (Sorry, payment must be by PayPal and if you don't include both your PayPal address and zip code, I'll have to go to the next commenter).
- I will send you a PayPal invoice for the postage (it should be less than $10 this week).
- When I receive your payment, I'll mail the kit to you!
In the meanwhile, have you started your "UFO List" for next year?
