Stash Report and More :)

This blanket ( I didn't use batting in my windows) used 21 yards of 36" muslin and about 3 yards of assorted prints for the "windows". So using the below top and give away I used or gave away 29 yards of fabric!!! Wow !! Pretty cool. I feel so much better that the Cathedral Windows is finished and fruits and veggies are gone.






This baby is made with a weekend frenzy group. Though I got the cutting directions late, I improvised with about.coms directions, kinda. I pretty much read theirs and changed to what I wanted to do :P. I used 25 different fabrics for the jars, 20 of which were fqs that I'm mailing the rest of them to someone else to do the quilt. WOW!!! 5 yards gone!!!!



People have asked about my sewing case........
A few months back, I took a class with Linda Franz and Monkey on quilted diamonds. Linda had the greatest little "desk" for hand piecing on the go. Hubby especially liked the tip of using just 2 needles at a time. One to pin the end of the seam and one to sew. Most of the times I use that system.There have been alot less missing needles to be found walking around barefoot *S*




This is the case open. A nice lap desk per say. Notice the lovely quilted sewing kit I got from Paula for a Pay it Forward gift :)

Wow -- I love your cathedral windows. Gorgeous. Aren't those little desks wonderful -- I bought one too and love it. Great way to keep things in one spot you can grab on your way out the door!

I like your jar quilt very much, and the cathedral windows too. Wow, it sure used up lots of fabric!

So, where did you get the desk? Looks like it would be nice to have around.

Kim, I think you should write a quilting book or tour the country (Vermont first!) giving quilting classes. Cathedral quilt is awesome.
