Stash Report - Nov 4
As I said yesterday, it's been a busy week, with progress on a couple of quilts. In addition to the piecing I accomplished, I finished quilting my checkerboard last night. Now I just have to bind it - this is a big quilt - 95" square - so binding will take a while.
I quilted in two colours - dark in the dark square and cream in the light squares. I like the end results - and as far as I can tell I managed to do this (2 passes on the long arm) without creating a pleat in the backing.
Used this week:
2 yards - borders for current quilt
3.5 yards - backing
1/2 yard - finishing UFO
