Goodies from Quilt Show and Stash Report

A different rug pattern- each rug uses 7 1/4 yards - where do I sign up???

Some hand quilting stencils and a few fqs for a applique class. It's repro design and hubby silly man wants the wall hanging to be the same as the pic on the
pattern :( I'm not big on repros

A couple of purse patterns and nice leather handles for purses. One pattern uses the 2 1/2" squares ( great as mine are breeding again) and the other the 5" charms :)

Isn't this a great template? It's a giant tumbler :) You get 2 tumblers from a fq. And who doesn't have fqs or more of fabric we have no recollection of buying????

Lastly I bought 4 1/2 yards of blue to make this pattern that one of my guild members designed.

So lets see, we've had 4 yards of border and binding fabric in
4 1/2 yards of snuggler fabric in
15 yards of muslin for backing in (90")
3 fqs in

We've used 4 yards of the muslin and 4 yards for borders and binding.
Yikes that leaves me in a huge hole.....but the muslin and border stuff is getting used as I finish each of the Girl Scout quilts. I have 3 quilted
1 waiting for trimming and binding
2 with binding sewn on and down
2 tops
1 with borders ready to load tomorrow morning
and a box of blocks waiting for it's turn.
All the binding is made and borders cut

Not the best report but it's the worst one in awhile-lol.

I have this rug pattern and have been threatening to do one for over a year. I will get there, I will get there....

Those rugs patterns sure look interesting. The bag handles...for quilted bags, I'm assuming. I want to see those!

You've found some lovely treasures. Can't wait to see the rug finished!
