stashbusting report

2 fqs came in last week for the QAL blocks. I still need to finish cutting sashing for the blocks and get it pieced. Nancy said I was safe as I didn't go over a yard :)

I finished the Carolina Crossroads top :) I'm very happy with it and can't wait to get it quilted.

I also finished the Grandma Cora top. That one is being mailed to Mel to practice her feathers on *VBG*

I've been playing with the Viking and put Ethel up for a well deserved rest. Poor gal has been the main piecing machine as I just didn't get the 1/4" seam on the Viking. But yesterday I called one of my friends in VA to help talk her through the feather points of the feathered star we're paper piecing and she has the same machine and was a huge help!!! So now I know what to do when it's beeping at me :) and more importantly why. But I got the top row done of my star and I need to finish putting the other two rows of parts together tomorrow or maybe Tuesday.

I have a bunch of Ocean Wave parts that need to be trimmed to piece more blocks- we're stuck at 32 I think .

Everyone is home tomorrow so I doubt much of the sewing will get done.....
Enjoy the day if you're off

I like the way your Carolina Crossroads turned out. Of all I've seen, yours is my favorite so far.

Keep up the good work!
