I guess you could say I was side tracked this week. First from sewing and second from not buying fabric.
The first distraction was Indulgence in Death. It came out on Tuesday and not much of anything got done for a couple of days. I love this series. 

The second happened when I purchased two fat quarter bundles. Luckily they have only 20 and 24 fat quarters. I need to make three similar quilts that measure about 60 x 80. When I saw these collections I grabbed them. They are both from Riley Blake and are Quite Contrary  (L) and Isabella (R). Then I picked up a bolt of green flannel for the backings. All total that was 26 yards. I am thinking of using Miss Rosies Ashcombe pattern.

On Thursday a plea went out for twin quilts from a local humanitarian center. Since I was feeling a little bad about being in the red I pulled out stash and quickly cut out a Bricks quilt and started sewing the blocks together. The blocks are all finished and now on my design board. I will get it put together and then quilted this week. The backing is sewn up but I won't count that until next week.
I hope you have a great week sewing up your stash.
