Stash Report

All week long I have stealing bits of time here and there.  When the phone would ring I would turn the phone on speaker and pin a row….I would pin a row on each evening.  Gradually day by day, I ended up with this….

CrissCross
The top is finished!  This is Criss Cross Applesauce.  It is made with shirts.  After seeing it in pictures, I wonder if I should have added blue borders instead…but all in all…I love it.

If you are looking for the pattern, you can find it here in Bonnie Hunter’s Scraps & Shirttails II: Continuing the Art of Quilting Green.  This quilt was on my UFO list so I am so-so happy to have this one step farther to completion.

There were no number movements in my stash…

Here are my numbers…

Used this Week:   0 yards

Used year to Date:  45 yards  +  16.5 Moda fabric + 6 yards of recycled fabric…

    that’s a great quilt! i agree with you that the green borders just fit that quilt to a T.
    Nice job, and a nice finish! Congratulations on using up all those shirtings and little bits of “spare” time.

    What a beautiful quilt Jo! I haven’t ventured in to working with shirts yet but the beauty of your quilt makes me want to make a mad dash to the thrift stores!

    Jo–Great job once again. Having a UFO finish makes one feel good and ready for another project. I cannot wait to see what you have hiding from us on your secret project. I will be good. Have a great day.

    I think that blue borders would have been fine, but the green borders add a zing that livens the design. How big is the flimsy? (It looks huge to me. That happens with Bonnie’s quilts, I know from much experience. )
