Net Used in quilts 2017:                                 125.51 yards 
A couple of other fun facts are:

Prairie Moon is doing a 350 blocks challenge this year:
Number of equivalent blocks:                      981
Perimeter in inches                                    8872
Number of UFOs finished this year:              35
UFO Yardage Used                                131.65
Amount of yardage used in UFOs              72%
Number of Spools Used this week           0
Number of Spools Used this year            5

I really think counting bobbins will be the way I go next year.
My spools are too big.

I'm still in the red for September, but I only need 7.4 yards to break even.
I'm over the 100 yards in the original of the 100 net yards used for the year, but would really like to make that more.

Thinking this is going to be a good week.


First Covered in Love Quilt is quilted.

Quilted leaves in a semi organic way.

I just got 2 QOVs added to my list, so one will be loaded next.

Pencil case

Teal colored lining.
I found this fabric when I was putting away all the laundry basket full of fabric I'd used lately.
DD wanted another one.
I used this pattern in Instructables.
It went together very nicely.
I would rather have the pouch lined, so I'll see if I can remember how to do that.
I think DD will like it the way it is too.

I'm linking up to Elm Street Bag It

Whoop Whoop

Confessions of a Fabric Addict Does a Whoop Whoop Post on Fridays.
I missed it on Friday, but here goes.

I've not quilted anything because I don't want to sew batting together.
I want to, but I don't want to stop and do it.
So, I started working on my Spring Jelly Roll, which happens to include the art from Special Reach last year.
I'll put this together into a small quilt and they will auction it off at their event.

I did get another row sewn on the baby clothing quilt.
It is cute, but I have a mental issue with this quilt.
It is big and heavy.
It takes abut 20 minutes to pin all the seams before sewing.
But, I'm making progress.

I'm also making a small bag for the the Elm Street Bag It Challenge.
I'm making a pencil case for my DD.

I really need to finish off postcards, which would mean I'd change the foot and be able to get to sewing batting together.

Happiness is quilting

Are your working on the Happiness is Quilting BOM?
Block #8 is out.
This is my Block #8

I'd love to see what you have done.

Putting fabric away

I've been sewing and putting my extra fabric in a thirty-one laundry hamper.
They are pretty.
I have one for the cut off pieces and one for fabric to be put away.
I was being a good girl and straightening up before I sewed.
It's been 2 hours and this is what I have.
What's still left in the basket.
I'm tired and it will have to wait.

Scraps to go into the scrap drawers, sorted by color.
I've used the blue and greens for the Irish Stars quilt along.

Large pieces of fabric that need to go back on the shelves.
Will they fit?????

I made some progress, but so much more to go.

That laundry basket holds a lot.

Third table runner

Same Fabric, but the 10 minute table runner.
This one is done.
I really want to figure out how to make it with batting, but I had to give it a try.
I am done with this UFO as soon as I quilt the others.
