Stash Report Week 50, 2012

For the Quilting Gallery's birthday giveaway, go to this post. Today is the last chance to enter.

What a week this has been!

I belong to the Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild and we have a chance to make modern Dresden Plate quilts for display at the April 2013 IQF show. Our quilts were supposed to be done Wednesday for our meeting so that the organizers could take the quilts and photograph them to send to the event people for selection.

Of course, I didn't get my quilt finished, but I wasn't the only one so the deadline was extended to tonight at 5PM.

I took my quilt off the frame last night at 1AM! I need to get the binding made, sewn on and hand stitched down.

I just have to say that I am thrilled with how this turned out! And I got to bust a lot of fabric! I'm going to wait to show the full front of the quilt quilted until I can get the binding on and the threads buried. There are a lot of threads!

Here is one of the pictures that I took before I took the top off the design wall. It was a total fluke of a shot, but I like the effect.

I quilted it with double batting and I didn't have a bad time with it at all! It made the quilt very heavy and I love it! Here is the back of a section of the quilt.

And my bag of scraps from making the blocks. I am going to have to come up with something to do with all of these...
