Stash Report Week 26

Used this Week: 9 yards
Used year to Date: 31 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards
Added Year to Date: 8 yards
Net Used for 2014: 33 yards

Forgot about this one and it was so exciting. Back story: I was there when this young woman was born and she has always been dear to my heart so when this happened I knew we had to have a quilt to commemorate the event. I had been hoarding saving these fabrics to make myself a winter quilt but this was much more important and the perfect use.

She was named Aurora, Queen of the Snows for the St. Paul Winter Carnival 2014 and we held a reception in our hometown. She was looking at this:
an ice sculpture that was made in her likeness!
And then I got to give her this:

Me, Penny and Julie(Aurora's Mom) at the reception. We have been friends for over 30 years...alot of shared memories and now we are becoming Grandmas instead of young Moms. Love you girls!

Second Swap Supernova Block, it is so fun getting to know another Quilter whom I have never met. She lives in Texas.
These are BIG, unfinished 18".

Auril BOM so far:
Making them from sewing themed fabrics and it will be for me!

Gotta run,

As Always,

Stash Report Week 25

Talk about an absentee blogger....phew, it has been almost 3 months! I feel like starting out "Forgive me Judy. It has been 3 months since my last report" What do you think I would get for penance? LOL

The time just flies when you are having fun. I am still here and these are my numbers the best I can figure:
Used this Week: 2 yards
Used year to Date: 22 yards
Added this Week: 6 yards
Added Year to Date: 8 yards
Net Used for 2014: 14 yards

I am not going to try to catch up completely but will hit the highlights:
Yesterday was the Zumbrota Arts in the Park Quilt Show at the Historic Methodist Church. Here are some of my favorites.

And the People's Choice Winner was:
"Simple Pleasures" by Janet Stark. It was quilted by "Peggy's Custom Quilting" of Minnesota. Janet also received a $50.00 gift Certificate from All in Stitches. Thanks Sandy!

We have also been busy with the car. DH spent the day in the sun while I was working the show.
People's Choice Award
1st Place 1900-1959

...and Excelsior Bay

There has been quilting going on also.
I ran a "Quilts of Valor" Mystery for our Guild, results in July.
Participating in a Supernova block exchange with a quilter I have never met. It has been so fun getting to know her! The party is here at Late Night Quilter. First blocks...I sent the one on the left and received the one on the right. You make 2 exactly the same and send one! Going to be an awesome quilt! Thanks Amy.
