Sunday Stash Report, September 23, 2011

Darn the weekend is going way too fast.  Two day weekends which is what I had for years just don't compare against the three day weekends that I get bimonthly these days.  Funny that I wasn't sure I could live with the Off Friday every other week...just couldn't imagine not being at work five days every week.  NOW I can't wait for them; got one coming this week!  YIPPEE!

Since my last post on Thursday all 12 cats are finished. Check one off the to do list!

Next to check off is my September UFO the pansy block that's part of Kourageous.  I'm most fond of the pansy flower over any other flower, but OMG this design is incredible.  I'm working on this today.  I WILL have it done before the day is can help me by keeping your fingers and toes crossed that I'm successful.  If things don't go well today I've still got most of the week to get through it.  This block is not the pansy as you can see, it's the iris that I corrected.  Look back to previous posts.  Do you see my mistake?

I didn't make as much progress as I'd hoped yesterday on Kolonial.  I do have a few dark stars (sounds like a sci-fi program) assembled, but still a ways to go.  I'm starting to ponder my quilting thread color and design.  Kerry is all lined up to get this one quilted just as soon as I'm ready. 

Memory Lane Quilt Shop got some business from me on Saturday.  My Mom had me shopping for a back for a Bonnie Hunter project she finished up.  She's so lucky to have her giving a lecture and two day workshop in her area the second weekend of October.  Show and Tell, with a little luck, will have Mom's quilt displayed when Bonnie visits.  What started out being a pink backing has turned into white, black, and gray.  I fought hard to go the pink, but just couldn't make it work in my mind.  Next I thought a teal thread would be the way to go...but that changed too.  Mom...are you ready?  It is going to be fabulous with the quilt design I selected that matches the paisley in the border.

I'm all cut and ready to sew on Sunshine Quilt Guild's Setpember BOM. Thought I'd throw in a blue/rust color Fall batik. Notice how similar this background is to the Memory Lane purchase? Love it!

My stash report suffered from my Memory Lane visit; Mom it's all your fault for taking me to Memory Lane!  They had a must get neutral as their bolt of the day.  (You must have a nearby quilt shop that does this too.)  20% off a batik neutral...come on how can it be resisted?

Used this week: 0 yards
Used YTD: 192.50 yards
Purchased this week: 3 yards
Purchased YTD: 98.75 yards
Net Fabric Used in 2011: 93.75 yards

This week with a purchase my Net Fabric Used in 2011 takes a bit of a dive.  Got to get Kolonial done!  Check out others using their stash at Patchwork Times.  Have a quilty week everybody!

Sorry I got you in trouble, lol. Just think we don't even live in the same state and I still get you in trouble. Your cats are really cute, looking forward to seeing the finished project. Glad that Kerry can quilt my top. Katie is so busy, hate to ask her, but after the holidays, she will hear from me....

Love the cats and especially the pansy! Yup - I would've been right in line behind you to get a neutral batik on sale - can't pass that up.

I would have bought the batik too - it is great! Even with a little hit this week, your numbers are great.
