Project Quilting Challenge 1

 It's the fourteenth season of Project Quilting!

The theme of the first challenge this year is "one."

My entry is "One World."

This little manatee is here to remind you that we have ONE planet, and it's up to all of us to take care of it.


The conservation theme continues on the backing.

Hop on over to Persimon Dreams to join in the fun next time around!

Spending is a wild, wild guess. We went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival yesterday- first festival in three years!!! I made up for my lack of the previous years' spending. I'm guessing $200 (which may or may not include yarn purchased for my youngest kid).

I went to a quilt show in Berryville, VA a couple of weeks ago. All that came home with me was a fat quarter!

I did bring scraps home from one of my last minigroup meetings.


Spending since last post: $200

Total spending this year: $325.29

Fabric in since last post: 3.5 yards

Fabric in this year: 13.48 yards

Fabric out since last post:  0 yards 

Fabric out this year: 22.12 yards


Net: 8.64 yards OUT

Sunday Stash Report, April 10

No report last week; nothing in or out.

The only fabric out this week was 9-patches made for our guild's service projects, since I'm not in the mood to weigh the trash this week. 12 12.5 inch blocks = 1.3 yards.

I also picked up a kit for this year's Service Projects challenge, for a medallion quilt. That's already started, but it added 3.5 yards to the stash.


This week's thrift shop yielded a few finds. First, a crochet book.


Some bags of floss, a couple of strings of beads, and straight pins.

A milk glass creamer and sugar (no lid unfortunately). Totally goes in the craft budget since I use the milk glass pieces to hold sewing stuff.



Spending this week: $9.25

Total spending this year: $125.29

Fabric in this week: 3.5 yards

Fabric in this year: 13.48 yards

Fabric out this week:  1.3 yards 

Fabric out this year: 22.12 yards


Net: 8.64 yards OUT

Project Quilting 13.6 - Flying Geese

 The last PQ challenge of this season from Kim Lapacek at Persimon Dreams is Flying Geese.

The requirement was to have at least five flying geese blocks.

I made a placemat to donate to our Service Projects. It's 14 x 18, the preferred size for the placemats.
