Midweek: Hourglass finish, OMG completed, and the stash report


Arabic Hourglass is finished.  I did rip out and re-sew the misturned blocks. However, as I basted it I found a dark block next to a dark block.  I left that one alone.  

I pieced the left over blocks into the back. 

I started and finished three other quilts this month.  The baby quilt (on the left) was my One Monthly Goal. The others just happened!

BTW, the baby arrived November 16.  His mother had some complications but both she and the baby are doing well.  The postponed shower will instead be a welcome party sometime in the new year.

The stash report for November:

Fabric IN:  157-1/2 yards (138 from an estate sale and 19-1/2 from the guild free table).  $265.00 = $1.68 per yard. 

Fabric OUT:  61-3/8 yards.

Fabric IN, YTD:  2016 yards, $2047.00, $1.01 per yard.

Fabric OUT, YTD:  985-1/4 yards.   

Net GAIN: 1031.  Yikes!  But I could've spent time at the casino (or one of the numerous "play slots here" places), which I did not.

Linking up with Midweek Makers Wednesday Wait Loss OMG at Stories from the Sewing Room


  1. Congrats on the finishes. Happy to hear Mom is doing better...child birth can be a scary thing!

  2. Yikes, indeed! Do you have LTD (Lifetime-to-Date) IN and OUT numbers (or a close facsimile thereof)?

  6. You had very productive month. I love that baby quilt. That is one of my favorite blocks for baby quilts.

  7. Had the same thing happen with my sister--baby came on the day of the shower so we just had it later, to welcome the baby. Wow you've had such a productive month! Love each of these quilts they are so pretty, but especially Arabic Hourglass. Stunning! Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.

  8. Your hourglass quilt is an unusual variation and very intriguing. I love how it finished. Another very productive month for you!

  9. All the quilts look great. Glad to hear mom and baby are doing well.
