After I returned home from my weekend long retreat, I fell asleep on the couch and failed to post my Sunday Stash Stats.  I used quite a bit this last week in preparation of my weekend long retreat. 

Used this week:   17.75 yards
Used year to date in 2012:  137.375 yards

Added this week:  4.5 yards
Added year to date in 2012:  119.75 yards

Net used in 2012:  17.625 yards

And the same thing is on my design wall as last week.  Nothing to show you though.  I did manage to work on this quilt.  I have cut out the flag background and traced off the big state to applique on it.  I have also prepared and traced the bluebonnet pieces to applique on the state.  Dang there are a lot of small pieces to applique for the bluebonnet.



  1. My husband walked by the computer as I was reading your blog. He is admiring the lights above your frame. They appear to be attached to the frame. Are they a Gammill accessory? I a MegaQuilter on a Next Generation frame and would love to have better lighting!
    I read your blog on a regular basis and always enjoy seeing what you are working on.

  2. Quilty mama, Thanks for being a dedicated reader. Yes, the lights are a Gammill accessory. I bought a package when I purchased the machine so I don't remember how much they were. I love, love them and my eyes do too! I'm sure if you contact your local Gammill dealer they could help you out. I also know there are aftermarket lights out there as I remember seeing them in a booth at MQS but of course, I didn't pay much attention to them as I didn't need any.


Your comments make my day. I love to hear what you have to say. Please leave me a comment.
