This week I was able to use 3/4 yard binding  the ugly quilt that could. I love to use bias and the black I had was a scrap so I was cutting out strips that were only 13" long. I don't think I have pieced a one color binding with so many seams. Good thing it is black because you just can't see the seams.

I dodged a bullet this week. On Wednesday a few of my quilt buds I went on a mini shop hop. We returned to the store that had the Fresh Cotton fat quarter bundle. Oh let me tell you temptation was great. I picked it up, fondled it, and dithered. In the end I put it down, patted it lovingly and told it I had too much going on right now and it just wasn't fitting into my list of things I want to do. Do I regret it? No, because I have figured out that fabric manufactures keep making beautiful fabric. When I am ready there will be something new that I will love just as much if not more.

I did buy a pattern from a local designer and now I am looking for fabric for that. Simply Sweet is calling my name as well as Flower Sugar. We will see. I am trying to hold off until I get more of the DWR put together. I appliqued the circles on 50 of the arcs this week. So total arcs done is 200 with 132 left to do. Woo Hoo.

Since I don't have any pictures of quilts made this week haw about one of a quilt I made several years ago. This was a fun string quilt. I was made for a guild auction. Pattern is from Quilter's Cache.

I hope you have a great week busting that stash.


  1. Congrats to you for not letting that FQ bundle come home with you!

  2. You're so strong! It probably would have ended up following me home!

  3. Good job on the will power. You are right - there is always a new fabric that catches our attention.
