'Sis'tery Weekend

So my sister Caroline is visiting me for a week this week. The plan is to do the Mystery Weekend at Glad Creations on Oct 11 and 12. We spent the last two days cutting out our fabric for the quilt. So we needed a post to celebrate the accomplishment of finishing the cutting for the quilt. I'm a statistician, so here are the stats for this quilt. The quilts finished size will be 90"x110". It requires 16 7/8 yards of fabrics. There are dark fabrics, medium fabrics, one accent fabric and one background fabric. The dark fabrics get cut up into 331 pieces. The medium fabrics get cut up into 213 pieces. The accent fabric gets cut into 44 fabrics. The background fabrics gets cut up into 416 pieces. Do the math, that adds up to a grand total of 1004 pieces. Wish us luck!

I picked fabrics designed by Kaffe Fassett, in the first photo. Caroline did a mix of fabric but the majority of them are from Moda, in the second photo.

Caroline also brought a great recipe with her from Martha Stewart Everyday Food magazine. She made Rigatoni with Roasted Pumpkin and Goat Cheese. As you can see from the picture she did a good job. Let me tell you it was delicious.
