I hope you are enjoying your day with Family and Friends!

This week on my Design Wall is Survivor. This quilt was started over a year ago during the 2013 San Diego Quilt Show. It was a class by Joyce Weeks and I a using all fabrics from my stash, including the chedder, which I purchased sometime ago. This quilt requires a lot of cutting, and is very scrappy. So that is what I have been working on this week. I will catch a little bit of sewing time today in between having a great Turkey dinner courtesy of DH and Mimi's. Then I am off to work, as I have one of thoses jobs in retail and we open the store at 6pm!  

Counting down the hours until Bonnie releases the first clue of her Grand Illusion Mystery tomorrow!!!

Sunday Stash Report

This week I have a finish to report. Pfefferneuse is done. This is my UFO for December, so I am ahead with this one. But still have October (Lilibet's Garden) and November (Survivor) to complete.

Check this out. I really love the pink and brown, and all the fabrics came from my stash. Mostly leftovers from the Dear Jane Quilt. This one I am going to try to quilt this month.

Just a few adds to report. I am getting ready for Bonnie Hunter's new Mystery Quilt called
 Grand Illusion. The first clue will be out right after Thanksgiving.  I had the greens, pinks, neutrals and blacks, but needed the constant yellow and the turquoise blues. So after a quick trip to Rosie's I now have everything needed to get started. If you have not done one of Bonnie's Mystery Quilts, I would recommend that you check it out and see if you would like to play along.

I also added a couple of neutrals and some reds for a quilt I will be making next year sometime called Lady of Lake Erie.

Here are the current numbers!

Used this week: 15 yards.
Used YTD: 123.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 6.0 yards.
Purchased YTD: 89.5 yards
Net Fabric used in 2014: 34. yards

Sunday Stash Report

Well, I sort of have a finish for this week. I have finished all the chevron units for our swap coming up at the end of November. All 288 of them. Yes these did take awhile to sew together, but I did get some purple and blue bonus half square triangles to use in a couple of other projects!

Now I just have to pack them up and get to Sandi by the end of the month. These units will be used in Bonnie Hunters Midnight Flight quilt from her new book. You can check it out here.

So really, nothing added and nothing subtracted for this week. Hopefully soon!

Used this week: 0 yards.
Used YTD: 108.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 0 yards.
Purchased YTD: 83.5 yards
Net Fabric used in 2014: 25.0 yards

See how everyone else is doing at Patchwork Times.
