Stash Report Sunday & Design Wall Monday

Well, I'm running behind yet again, hush, I don't want to hear a word about laziness because I might be found guilty!


There has been no change again to the stash report: (linking to Patchwork Times)

Used This Week: 0 yards
Used Year to Date: 0 yards
Added This Week: 2 yards
Added Year to Date: 2 yards
Net Used for 2013: -2 yards



Physically on my design wall is this quilt.  I recently bought the gold fabric for the inner border, but in putting it up on the design wall with the quilt center and the outer border, I'm not happy with it, so will be looking for a new gold, something that reads a little darker and flatter - not so bright - and more like the solid (mottled) gold squares in the quilt.  The background of that fabric is that way, but the gold 'paint' is brighter and I just don't like how it looks.  There will be more to write about this quilt at a later date :)  (Linking to Patchwork Times)


My Easy Street piecing is finally done and in essence, I considered it still on the design wall until it was, which was late yesterday.  I tried to get a shot of it outside in natural light, but there wasn't a really good place, i.e. clean place, to lay it down, so right on the dead leaf-covered lawn it went.  I also took a pic of it indoors draped over kitchen chairs.  I've yet to decide if I'll add borders or not.  I like it this way, but I also like what I've seen where others have added borders.

Easy Street will probably go into the UFO pile until I decide whether to add borders, or to quilt it as is, and if the latter, I need to wait until I get some other projects quilted to free up my basting pins! I'm not going to buy any more of them!


  1. Oh wow! Very pretty. I love the colors and the design. It would be nice with or without a border...tuff decision!

  2. LEE!! It's lovely -- really lovely!! You did a great job with this quilt and I love it in the golds!!! I do a border ... something very simple ... maybe a simple 2-3 inch sashing border in the red?? :)
