Stash Report, Week 30, 2014

I have usage to report, and more than just a couple of inches....... finally. And it's because of making the backing for this.
Cactus Rose is finally loaded and the quilting started. I'm about 1/8th of the way done. I'm doing tons of stitch in the ditch, and lots of echoing and leaf shapes and a little bit of McTavish style and a bit of pebbling as well. I don't want the quilting to take over the piece, but to complement it, and look like it was meant to be this way. While I was at the sew-in day yesterday, I saw some quilting that Lorna was doing, and the filled leaves in the outer border section of this quilt were inspired by what she was doing. This is going to be a time consuming project, nut I'm thinking it will be well worth the time.

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
