Sewed the last few seams on this queen-sized top this morning. It’s for Daughter Number Three in fabric she selected and a pattern she approved.
I had to stand on the upstairs balcony to get the picture, because huge! I’m planning to do some piecing on the back, and here are the leftovers I’ll start with. It joins the stack of finished tops, so I’ve scheduled a long arm quilting lesson for the first weekend of June, which should give me time to get the back together.
After the sewing, I decided to assess the state of the stash I swore not to accumulate. Now, have some mercy, because some of the stuff in these pictures has been in my possession for over 20 years. But some of it, more than half of it, has been purchased since March. Here are the quilty bits (and a few chunks that might be large enough for other purposes):
Yeah, the pic cut off on the right, the camera can only capture so much, and I stood on a chair to get what I got. I think that table is 2×4 feet.
Here is the yardage that will become clothing and/or backing:
Yesterday, when I said I would not need more fabric until next year’s Fabric Fair, I didn’t realize how serious I was! I think I will hold off on any purchases not needed to complete something I’ve started with what you see here. And yes, there are two complete planned tops on the table, along with a slew of random possibilities.
If you’ll excuse me now, I need to go clear off my bed and my idea space.
P.S. I’ve changed the name of the the category “cass knits” to “cass makes things,” because I do way more than knit these days. The slug will stay the same so that all the links continue to work. Carry on!
