If you would like to see how others are doing on their stash check out Judy's blog. It is great fun.
I have my FIRST FINISH for the year. Woohoo. I quilted up the Flowers Forever top and got it bound. It is now hanging in my front entry way. Someday it may actually make its way onto a bed. Because of the binding I am able to say I am 3/4 of a yard ahead of the game. Here are some pictures of the finished quilt.
I am not too happy with the background fill I used. I think it is too dense. I hate overquilted quilts and I think this just about qualifies as one. I am learning. I have my Grandmothers Diamond Ring on the machine and I am having lots of fun using my Circle Lord to do a motif in the hexagons. It reminds me of the spirograph I used to play with when I was a kid.

I don't know how much quilting I will get done this coming week. We are going to Ariz. for a wedding and will be there for a week. I wish I could take my longarm with me. Now that would be fun. I should prep a couple of blocks that I could do hand applique on. We'll see.

Have a great week of busting stash.
