while chatting with Jenny and Brian this weekend I mentioned I had made my own bumper pads before Jenny was born. And, that led me to comment that I still had some of the fabric left in my stash. Brian's comment was it was way too old to have sitting around still. So, what do you all think? Is a 30+ year old fabric too old to keep in the stash and use?
Yep, it's a calico. No ultra sounds unless there was a major issue so we didn't know if we'd have a boy or a girl so the room was done in browns and yellows. Which at the time I liked. I still like this calico although I don't think I've used it in any of my recent scrap quilts. Hum, maybe I should cut a piece to put in the big scrap quilt that is currently on the back burner while I do some little projects, although I am still using the borders as leader/enders.
I loaded this stretched star quilt on Ruthie today and got it quilted in about an hour and a half. Just large free motion stippling. I cut and pinned the binding tonight but will be sewing it together tomorrow.
I guess I wimped out on my goals for last week. There wasn't much on the list:
• Sew on 2009 Bunny Hill BOM A Tisket, A Tasket.
• Finish Sophia's sweater.
• Load something on Ruthie.
• Enjoy a safe trip to Maryland.
I did all but loading something on Ruthie last week.
Here is a short goal list for the rest of this week.
• Finish the stretched star quilt -- make & sew on binding.
• Finish a surprise doll quilt... it needs to go in the mail to Heather ~~ waving at you up in Canada.
• Add a border to the Valentine's Quilt.
• Make the backing for Super Duper Easy quilt, Mysteries for Relay #13. See the top here.
Hum, I may need to redefine the word SHORT. I was pleasantly surprised to realize it wouldn't be all that hard to put together the backing for Super Duper once I found some fabric. In fact, I was able to find enough of one fabric to use. It won't take long to quilt although it won't be as fast as the stretched stars.
