"This one was started in 2017 but completed last week. I have no idea how much fabric left my stash.  Using the number of yards the pattern suggests, I think about 10 yards left my space.  But new yardage for the backing should be arriving…"

Sherri Eley replied to Beth A. North's discussion 2018 Stashbusting Challenge in the group A Quilting Bee
"Deanna, Nice quilt. I am interested in which Pelon you used in place of the batting.  One reason I do not make many wall quilts is because they do not hang well.  But I have used regular quilt batting and I think that is the major reason…"

Sherri Eley commented on Christine Brown's group UFOs
"Finally finished this UFO this week.  It was a challenge to piece the top because the blocks are on point. A technique I am not fond of doing.  Since I do not have a space for a permanent design wall  it was a combo of placing the…"

You have a lot of experience!   I did one of the quilts you made as well...the one you took a picture of on 9/2.  I got it from the cover of a magazine.  I JUST finished it.  I just took quilting classes in October so I am REALLY new!  I have done two queen sized quilts, one small one and a medium size one.  I'm looking forward to my next one, although I haven't decided what that's going to be.  I would love to make and heirloom quilt that I can pass down to my kids.  I have a 21 year old son and 9 year old boy/girl twins.  I guess I'd better get busy on the one for my oldest!  I am having so much fun buying fabric and picking out patterns.  I have so many things I want to do!
