Suday Stash Report and Block Exchange fun !!

Stash Report: I did buy 2 fat quarters this week. I used up 2 yards of black for my 4 patch posie top pictured earlier this week.
I still have about 1.5 totes.

To bust the stash I am going to make locker hooked rugs with my scrap fabrics; and I think I am going to make another rag quilt. I have other ideas for the charm packs I was given for Christmas. I think a disappearing 9 patch is in one.

The block exchange was fantastic!! I learned so much from everyone there. I learned that mixing hand quilting and stippling looks beautiful. I learned that making a Dear Jane is possible, A, started in Dec and she has 84 of the little blocks done. I have someone to help me paper piece if I can't figure it out.

I also learned that every one is so creative and had such great ideas. Embroidering X cross stitch in seams was a great addition to a quilt top. I also had a great time visiting.

We are going to exchange blocks again next Nov. a tutorial will be posted soon for my Circle of Friends in the exchange. Watch for it on the side column.

Here is the Road to the White House Block Exchange 2009 !
Here is a preview for the next block exchange:

Vicki, Regarding your comment on my blog, it is really sickening that this sort of thing is so common with insurance companies & we don't seem to have any recourse. Ah well, I'm going to go read your blog now & not think about insurance for a while.
