TUSAL - 10/23/14


Once again I have joined a bunch of other stitchers -

In Daffycat’s TUSAL - HERE -

It's a Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long - ;))

To play the game -

I have to fill my glass container -

With saved thread clippings -

Or ORTS - Old Ratty Threads -

Fabric trimmings -

Stitching cast-offs -


And then -

On (or about) the New Moon -

Take a picture of the ORTS in my jar -

Post it to my blog -

With a link back to her TUSAL post - HERE -

Label the Totally Useless posts with “TUSAL” -

And then visit her blog and comment on her ORT report for that month's TUSAL - ;))


It's EASY -

It's TOTALLY USELESS -

And -

It's FUN!! - ;))

This year I decided NOT to empty my jar each time -

Maybe a year-to-date accumulation of ORTs -

Will make it look like actually DID something - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I wanted to make a quilt for my sister-in-law similar to the one that I had made for my sister - ;))

I only needed 4 fabrics so I found a light and dark yellow/gold batik and a light and dark purple/green colored batik. I also got a dark green batik for the tiny inner border. Hopefully it would go with her family room or office furnishings - ;))

I used a "soft curves" technique by Alex Anderson for quilting the center portion and quilted a grid in the border - ;))

I challenged myself to complete it before Christmas - and I did - barely. I finished the binding and sewing on the label on Saturday, December 22, 2007. We left on Sunday, December 23, 2007 to spend Christmas with her and her family - ;))



QJ - 2007

P.S. - The label says "my favorite sister-in-law" - the joke is that she's my "only" sister-in-law - ;))
