Sunday Stash Report, August 1, 2010

Not only is it the start of a new week, but the start of another month. August already! We had a beautiful day in San Diego today. The sun was shining and a real nice breeze was coming in off the ocean. Several friends got together to enjoy it and remember the birthdays of two special men, my brother and a close friend recently parted. They both would have enjoyed our celebration at the Green Flash on such a beautiful day just off the beach. Later in the day after the chores were done I headed up to my sewing room to put the finishing touches on Kotton Kandy Kocktail. This project came together nicely this past week. It finished at 55 1/2 by 70 1/2. I also got the back pieced together. I have some leftover strips from the Cotton Candy Hoffman Bali Pop that I used and some from my strips stash to make the binding as well. This project used fabrics from my stash entirely.

Used this week: 8 yards
Used YTD: 18 yards
Purchased this week: 0 yards
Purchased YTD: 0 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2010: 18 yards

My next project is already selected. It will be from the Timeless Treasures pattern called Blue Moon. Mine will be coined Karibbean. I've got batiks to use for this project; several dark navy prints and a light blue that has a small design for the background that will pull all the navy prints together. More on Karibbean tomorrow.

I think this is a very pretty and great use of your fabric. Nice quilt. Ugh, August. Who let that month in already??? First signs of the end of summer are already upon us here in the North country.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I wanted to reply to your comment about adding warm colors to my quilt. I just have a few blocks made and put them up to see if I would like the setting. I have oodles of blocks to make yet. Thanks for the input. :)
