Sunday Stash Report: The Droids I was Looking For

2 Comments

Yesterday I finished the twin-sized Droid quilt from The Stitch’s Droid Quilt Along.  It used nine and a half yards, but I did need to buy an extra half yard of the white Kona background.  This concludes my Christmas sewing, just in time.  I experimented with using my tablet for these photos, not too impressed.

I really like the vertical straight line quilting, but as always with walking foot quilting, it seemed to take forever, and that long quilt got heavy on my shoulders.

I used two classic Star Wars prints for the backing, pieced in a giant Disappearing Four Patch.

This week:  + .5 yards,  – 9.5 yards
This year:  + 134.75 yards,  – 184.25 yards
Net fabric destashed  in 2015:  49.50 yards

And, of course I had it officially tested.  It passed!
