In just a few hours, I had prepared the fabric, and cut enough strips for 3 1/2 jelly rolls!! Who'd a thought. And so, what will I do with the strips? Well, there are at least 3 charity quilts in that box waiting for the next pallet-cleansing activity.
In the last post, I told you about my desire to make a comprehensive index of all of the quilts I have made. And, I DID! Okay... so I found 2 more project boxes buried in the studio closet yesterday - both UFOs. I wonder how many more there are.... But this has been a great project. Not only did I dig in all of the closets to find quilts and projects, I examined every quilt to see if it needed a sleeve or label, and made a note of whether it has been in any quilt shows or if it wants to be in one. There are a few shy quilts in my collection that would have a hissy fit if I tried to put them in a show. If you would like to have a blank version of the Excel spreadsheet for your own index, just shoot me an email.
News from the studio
Current Project: Hunter's StarI have wanted to make a hunter's star quilt for a good while, ever since I saw a beautiful powdery blue and white one at the 2013 or 2014 Sycamore Stitchers' show. So, not long ago, I was snooping around pinterest for hunter's star quilts, and ran across a very scrappy and adorable project from the Hopeful Homemaker called Scrappy Hunter's Star. The pieces are all cut from layer cakes! Do you think I have some gorgeous layer cakes in the studio? Of course I do! I was totally overwhelmed to think about making the quilt all scrappy like the pattern, so I'll just use all the same fabric in a block, and scrappy up the block layout.

Learning for the weekThere is a difference between a hissy-fit and a conniption-fit, and southern girls know what it is. We also know the difference between a smidge, a hair, a tad, and a bit. It's just a fraction.
Enjoy! Now let's go quilt something!
