Sunday Stash and Stitching Report, week 23

I've been stitching up a storm in the past couple of days, working on the third of four large rosettes for La Passacaglia, found in the book called Millefiori Quilts, by Willyne Hammerstein.
 Right now, I'm working on putting on a round of the bright greens. Then, there will be another round of pentagons, and then a partial round of light grey stars. Here's a close up of part of the rosette that shows the fabrics better.
This project continues to captivate almost all my time and attention, limiting the amount of work I'm doing on other projects that would use up fabric a lot faster. I won't count the fabrics in this rosette as used until it's done. Unfortunately, due to my incoming stash in the past couple of weeks, that puts me very deeply in the red. I did shopping while we were away, and then I had 2 packages delivered this week. Almost all of the fabrics were designs that are appropriate for fussy cutting for this project. I now have way more fabric for this thing than can possibly be used for this, so I really don't know exactly what I'm going to do with all of it. Oh well, it's new, and all of the stuff I've been buying lately is completely different than anything else I have in my stash. There are several other quilts in the book this one came in, so that might be an option. This report is actually for two weeks, since I didn't do one last week.

Used this week:                              0 yards
Used this year:                               41 yards      
Added this week:                           21.5 yards
Added this year:                            59.25 yards
Net stash added:                            18.25 yards

I'm linking up to Judy's Fabric Report,  Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching and Angie's WIPs be Gone. Then, It's back to more green pentagons and diamonds.


  1. Gorgeous! There is so much to see in just this one rosette!

  2. Wonderful work, love your fussy cutting, you need the new fabric in your stash.

  3. I'm really enjoying and growing more enamoured of this pentagon project. So beautiful, Cathy. So glad you linked to WIPs Be Gone to share this marvelous quilts.


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.
