WIP Wednesday: The Ocean

I’m not very good at low volume. I really admire the neutral nurseries, especially the nautical ones. I just couldnt quite get there.

I had this pretty, pale sea glass fabric ready for the inner borders, but I found it blah. One final check of the fabric closet found the last of the fish batik, and they really wanted to swim with the whales. I think it fits just right, but it sure isn’t neutral, is it?

Sunday Stash Report: 7/1/18

Sewing happened! But just a little and not a finish. I’ve almost put together a baby quilt top I had been doing as leader-and-enders. When it’s finished it will be completely from (very old) stash.

What did happen this week is that I got a bug to to sew some things from panels, so I bought 11.25 yards from eQuilter. I think all of it was on sale. That took my numbers down a lot, but I’m finding the fabric inspiring.

This week: + 11.25 yards, – 0 yards

This year: + 55.50 yards, – 72.25 yards

Net destashed added in 2018: 16.25 yards

Yuri hopes you’re staying on top of your stash!

Very little sewing happening here, so you can look at my garden.

I’ve completed one baby quilt, this nautical quilt, since my last report, using 3.5 yards.

(I’ve also ordered some fabric, but we won’t talk about that until it arrives.)

This week: + 0 yards, – 3.5 yards

This year: + 44.25 yards, – 72.25 yards

Net destashed added in 2018: 28 yards

Good luck with whatever you’re doing!

May / June Goals

PicMonkey Collage May 2018May flew by, but I did accomplish my goals!

May Goals:

  1.  Complete Clue #4, Summer Stars at Fawn Lake.  Yes!
  2. Complete Clue #5, assembling the top.  Yes!
  3. Make donation blocks (This month, Kat asks us to make blocks for her friend Briawna.)  Yes, I made a dozen, and they’re in the mail!
  4.  Make a low-ish volume baby quilt.  Yes, the Train baby quilt (in a post soon). 

I’m doing the smaller (63″ x 72″) Fawn Lake quilt, so I think it needs some 6″ borders to bring it up to bed size.  And I have the perfect fabric!

June Goals:

  1. Add borders to Summer Stars at Fawn Lake.
  2. Quilt and bind Summer Stars at Fawn Lake.
  3. Make Heart baby quilt.  (low volume)
  4. Make Anchor baby quilt.  (low volume)


We’re looking at a week of cooler weather here (whew!), so I’m excited to get started on my June goals.

Good sewing to you this month!
