Stash Report - Weeks 6-9 2014

I haven't done a stash report since the beginning of the month because there hasn't been anything to report, so we'll call this the "no report stash report."  The good news is that it means that I have been working on my goals for the month, which include doing lots of quilting and getting a UFO into a top.  

My goal for this weekend is to get my stained glass log cabin into a finished top and I am pretty close.  I decided that I should chunk it together rather than put the rows together because the blocks are all sized and trimmed a little differently.  This started as a bee project, where each person in the bee made one block, so the full set of blocks was made by about 15 different people.  If you've ever worked on a project with blocks from multiple people, you know that no one makes the same size blocks! 

I divided the quilt into four sections and pieced each section together, and today I will join those sections into the top. 

No shopping or cutting have happened over the whole month of February, so my stash report stats haven't changed one bit.  I am headed out to my bee retreat next Sunday afternoon, so I should have some cutting to report soon. I haven't yet done any pre-cutting, but must get to it this week so I can be efficient at retreat.

Hopefully I will have something to report next week!

I am in the same boat! Only my retreat isn't until April.

What a stunning quilt! It is gorgeous.

I have only traded blocks with one person and the blocks she sent varied a whole half inch from being too small to being too big. I decided it is best if I just make my own blocks. I am not saying my blocks were perfect but a whole heck of a lot closer to the size we picked.

I've heard of assembling a quilt in sections, but haven't tried it. However, as I was assembling row after row of Celtic Solstice yesterday the thought did enter my mind. I'll try it on the next one.
Gorgeous quilt, BTW!

Actually your numbers are great. And I love that bright and colorful log cabin. Thanks for sharing, Jennifer!

It looks pretty awesome! Where is the pattern from? It could make for a great scrap quilt. :)
