Sunday Finishes

I've been really good about not adding to my stash for most of this year.  But yesterday I went on a little fabric tour with a friend (hereafter called "Enabler" :) ).  She lives outside of town, so took me out to a couple of shops in that end, which I hadn't been to before.  Needless to say, I could not walk out of them empty handed. In total, I came home with 4 yards of fabric - 2 yards of some of Northcott's new Oh Canada! line, and 2 yards (8 fat quarters) of Stonehenge, just because it was pretty.

To balance that out, I do have a couple of finishes to show you. First, I have my Modern Rainbow quilt.  I finished stitching the binding on it just in time to show it off at my guild Show and Tell last Monday.  4 yards of fabric for backing & lining for this quilt, plus 1/2 yard for binding. 

And I finished my "Sailing the Sunset" quilt. The applique is now stitched down (raw edge applique was the final decision). I really like the way this quilt changed, when I added the sailboat. Definitely a technique I'm going to keep in mind.  Fabric for this one and the next was already reported.

In fact, this quilt, another convergence, might be the next one to get spruced up with some applique.  The colours seem a bit dull, so it would be nice to find something to brighten this one up a bit.  Butterflies and flowers, perhaps, to draw from the floral print in the lower left.

Stash totals for this week:
4 yards in
4.5 yards out

Stash totals for the year:
99 3/4 yards in
209 3/4 yards out
Total: 110 yards out

  1. Great finishes! I did a fusible applique on a muted background once -- still not quilted -- and I plan to do more. Maybe I'll feature it on my next TBT!

  2. I really liked your modern rainbow, when you showed it on Monday. Love the bright colours.

  3. I like your modern rainbow finish too. Congrats on so many finishes.
