Stash Report - Week 19

The week started off well with sewing day on Monday, and I was able to go for the first time since January (I think...maybe I went in Feb, I can't remember). My bee has a large room set up with tables to sew and a few big tables that are great for making backs and borders because you can lay a whole quilt across them. The kids enjoy going too, because they get to run all around the room and sleep/play in their tents. 

I went with the express goal of getting the quilt top and back for my mother in law done. I pulled out my two possibilities for borders and had everyone weigh in on their preference. In the end, I decided (after some good input) to add two more borders instead of just one more. 

After I got the borders done, I cut, pieced, and pressed the binding, then went to work on the back. I was able to use big pieces of the border fabric to piece a back. I picked up some batting at Joann's this week with a 40% off coupon so it is ready to go on the frame when I finish a couple ahead of it. My goal is to have this one done for her birthday in the beginning of July. 

On to the stash report, which is always better when you've made a back :)
