Sandstone pattern with a pair of matching pillowcases and all the leftover fabric (3 yards out of the stash!) in case my daughter wants to accessorize!?! Nice strategy, don't you think? The top one is the twin size black trains with orange sashing quilt for my grandson. I'm still doing the hand stitching on the binding, but that will occupy my hands during the evenings while I'm visiting.
This finishing flurry has gotten the year off to a great start -- 21 3/4 yards out of the stash -- even I'm surprised! My monthly average has to be 17.66666666 to meet the goal of 212 yards and it's only the 18th?!? But I know at some point I'll get interrupted and so having a big start will be good. I'm sure many of you have also discovered that pillowcases are an excellent way to burn through fabric fast! A quilter told me last year that she used up 100 yards of her stash just doing pillowcases. Never done it? Joan Hawley's Lazy Girl blog has excellent instructions with clear photos -- http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/blog/pdf-files/tutorial-easy-pillow-case-with-contrasting-hem Add to that, giving my daughter all the left over fabric from the quilt and it was an easy 5 yards out of the stash!!
Time to finish packing the car and get on the road! Keep tackling your stash!!
