Stash Report - Week 13

This week, my primary goal was to get the binding on my Five Easy Pieces quilt so that I could get it finished by the end of the month. I trimmed and sewed it on last night and I have almost one full side of it hand stitched now. My goal is one side per day so I will be done with it by Tuesday! 

I also got a quilt my mom asked me to quilt loaded and quilted this week and it will go back to her today. It was so nice to work on a quickie - quilting done in 45 minutes! I did a freehand loops and flowers pattern and really enjoyed the freehand quilting, since it is soooo much faster than a panto. I used Signature Trilobal Polyester in the top and didn't have any of the issues I've had with this thread in the past, and Robison Anton in the bobbin. It took a full bobbin and a partial one, so I only had one stop in the whole quilt. 

All that I used from the stash this week was the fabric for my binding. 

Fabric added this week: 0
Fabric used this week: 3/4 yard

Fabric added year to date: 8 3/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 21 3/4 yards

Net fabric used: 13 3/8 yards

No change on the patterns this week, so I am still at a net of 0 patterns used for the year.

Love the quilting! And you are right for the most part - free hand quilting is usually quicker. As long as it is not a super dense pattern! :)

Great quilting! I love it when my thread cooperates.

Nice job on the machine quilting!

Love the quilting on your mom's quilt. It looks great. I love quick quilts to quilt. I'm doing hand binding on an almost king size quilt right now too, so I can feel your pain. It's taking me about 2 hours a night to do a side, though tonight I spent 5 hours on it and got 2.5 sides done. One side left!
