stash report May 9, 2021

I bought these fat quarter  bundles in preparation for a new quilt I am making as part of our Friday quilt group. At least Linda and I are making a quilt called sea swept., others may join as we go along. I have chosen to make it with batiks in the colors on the pattern. I pulled some fabric from my small, but, rarely used, stash of batiks. I was worried I didn't have enough.

I stitched at least 15 minutes every day this week. I had a sew day with friends on Friday.

I changed things up a bit, as I search for a new project for rug hooking at our guild meeting. I started a random free form circle rug to use leftover bits. I drew a few more circles, and, will play in the wool while I decide. Here is where I left it in 2019

 I am linking to:
