This week I really did buy a lot of fabric. My excuse? Really it is a very, very good one. A local store was closing out its fabric department. I resisted at 50% off....didn't even go in. I tried to resist at 75% off but I went in just to look. There was some really nice stuff still left. I bought three 7 yard pieces for backings. I don't have many backing pieces in my stash. I figured for $2.25 a yard I couldn't go wrong. I also picked up several really nice patterns for a song. 

This week on my DWR I finished appliquing all the circles on the arcs and managed to piece 12 melon pieces. I am so glad to see the circles done. Yea!!!!! I still have 288 petals to applique down but that is just a walk in the park compared to 1,932 circles. Most of the petals are prepped. I still have a few of those to starch. 

This week I put my Spring Beauty on the machine. I have quilted 5 of 7 rows. Hopefully I will have it finished next week. I am counting the backing in this weeks numbers. Want to have a peek?

I hope you have a wonderful week sewing. Don't get overheated and remember to drink lots of water.
