My fabric stash is medium sized but very varied. Too varied to co-ordinate, I almost always have to buy more fabric for each project.

I have sent out your giveaway goodies,  Mokki !  Congratulations!!

I had fun reading  all of the stash comments, and here are some fun comments:

  • I think my stash is in the medium range...of course that doesn't stop me from adding to it, lol. 

  • I have a --shh-- large stash. One of my friends said it's like paint for a painter, you need a lot of choices. :-) Somehow, I find I still have to make trips to the LQS or online stores, drat, you know how much I hate that...haha. 

  • Small in comparison to a fabric store. Ha! 
  • I think my stash is small.   My husband thinks it's huge!


Another week on the Irish Chain Twist Quilt-A-Long

I am having so much fun doing my weekly "homework" on my first Irish Chain quilt.
Melissa, at Happy Quilting,  has it all divided up into weekly work units. This is making the process of creating the blocks very enjoyable.

This week we worked on assembling the Appliqued Chain Block.

These orange peels will be machine appliqued onto the block next week.

 I was totally prepared for this fusible applique' step, after working on applique' all last year when Amanda, The Patchsmith, and I made our Patchque' blocks!

Spreading out some of the blocks.... to get a feel of what my quilt will look like!

Of course, I wouldn't be as far along, if I didn't have my faithful little helper working on the job right beside me!
Whiskers helped me lay out my Modern Patchwork Blocks from last week.

"Oops... wait a second while I get this little thread off of my face...."

' Yes, these  will be "nappable" '  upon the quilt's completion

I am adding my  assembled blocks to the Happy Quilting Quilt-A-Long Flickr group and  posting  it on social media with using #irishchaintwistqal.  Hop on over to see all of the gorgeous fabrics!!

I can hardly wait for Thursday to come, for the next set of instructions in our Quilt-A-Long!
Don't you love it when you are working on a project that you just can't wait to work on!!

I'm off to my sewing room!
