Spring Cleaning

April 23, 2009

This morning I felt motivated on cleaning my stash of fabrics. I have three bags of fabrics which are ready to be given away. I've posted on "Freecycle.org". Hopefully somebody will take my unwanted stash.

My current quilt project is another hawaiian quilt. This was suppose to be a gift for someone for Christmas of 2008. That never happened. This quilt was started in the summer of 2008. The applique is all done, and I am in the process of hand quilting. I am approximately 30% of the way done.

My guesstimate is that I'll have this done by the end of summer. Stay tune for the end result.

My goal for this summer is to finish this quilt and another wall-hanging that needs to be quilted. In the mean time, put your thinking cap on and come up with a name for the quilt below. The winner of this quilt will receive a fabric bowl, similar to this one.

The title of the quilt should not exceed more than 8 words. It should not contain any vulgarity. By entering this contest, you agree that I may use the title you come up with on this quilt. More than one entry is allowed per person.

This contest closes when I finish hand quilting the wall hanging. Thus there is currently no end date. I'll post a reminder as soon as I start on the binding.

My inspiration for the nameless quilt above was a trip to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Below are two items that inspired me to come up with the wall hanging. Can you see the resemblance?

Hey!
I am always interested in free fabric if someone else hasn't claimed it. I couldn't figure out how to find it on the Freecycle web site. Contact me if it's still available.
Thanks.

Hi Rachel,

Thanks for your interest. Unfortunately the fabrics are claimed. I see that you are in the Mid-West, and I am in the East- Coast... so that's not going to work. Check your local freecycle town and post asking people if they have fabrics available, and that you would pick me.

PS. Did not know how to contact you, because your blog did not list an email.
