Wow today is 10/10/10, now doesn’t that sound weird? Anyway first with my weekly stats. I did so well using up stash this week. I made a backing for a quilt (yet to be quilted), a backing for a bunch of table runners (currently on the frame) and misc. borders and other things. The only purchase I made was two yards of a pretty Christmas green that I had run out of.
Fabric used this week: 13.25 yards
Fabric used YTD: 213.75
Fabric purchased this week: 2 yards
Fabric purchased YTD: 133.75
Net used in 2010: 80 yards
My goal of using a net of 100 yards this year just might be attainable.
Yesterday was Day 2 of my self declared 4 day weekend. I tended to flit from one project to the next but I did get a lot done.
First I put the binding on this table runner made out of left over binding pieces.
Then I put the borders on these three runners and fused the poinsettias in place. Next step will be stitching around them.
I also cut about half of my batik fat quarters into 2 ½ strips and cut one strip of each color into 2 ½ squares.
I also pieced a backing fabric to quilt about five runners on and got this first runner quilted. I have the next runner pinned in place and will tackle that next time I am in the quilt room.
Now can I have good numbers this next week also since I still have Sunday and Monday of my long weekend?
