Sunday Stash Report

This week I have a couple of small finishes to report. The three Calendar Quilts are completed, April, May and June.

Next are the adds. 
Sandi and I took my DD to pick out fabrics for a quilt I will be making for her and her new husband. We started with these fabrics from Memory Lane.

We then headed to Rosies, where she fell in love with the fabrics below. They will be used in a pattern called Between the Lines by Denyse Schmidt Quilts. We will be making it more controlled than scrappy, as the picture shows. The rejected fabric has found a place in my stash for a future project.

The next group of fabrics, were purchased for a future Buggy Barn class, called Believe. I love these Santa's!

Almost done with our Shopping at Rosies! I  found a few more neutrals and a red for a couple of different projects in the works.

All in all, I added about 26 yards to the stash this week. I am looking forward to a few more finishes to get the stash back in check!

Used this week: 6.0 yards.
Used YTD: 86.0 Yards
Purchased this week: 26.0 yards.
Purchased YTD: 73.0 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 13 yards.

Design Wall Monday

Here we are well into August and I am just getting started on my August UFO. This month it was Lucky #7- Lady of Lake Erie. This is from the June/July 2011 issue of Quiltmaker Magazine and is another pattern by Bonnie Hunter. I am making mine in reds/neutrals, and it will be for my Mom.

Below are all the reds cut out and ready to go. There are 50 different fabrics, all from my stash. I have about half of the neutrals cut out. So tonight I am off to cut a bit more, before I get sewing.

If you have time, head over to Kwiltnkats to see our annual San Diego Humane Society Quilt. I think this is the 10th year we have made a quilt for the Fur Ball auction. This one is super cute with dogs and doghouses!
