I had to buy fabric for borders of three different quilts. This is the first fabric bought this year. I can sew most of this up pretty fast on two of the quilts.

This week I put together a charity quilt. I was trying to decide what to do when I found a great print so I just sewed that one up whole cloth style, same with the backing. Then I quilted it up fasto-speedo and tah-da! an almost finished quilt. I really would of bound it but I had a problem. I have been going to a gym and one day I did upper body workout. I tell you my arms were so sore. I found out that triceps are really involved when you use the rotary cutter. My muscles were so sore I couldn't cut. So it still needs to be bound.

So the end result is a draw for the week. Same amount came in as went out. Not bad.

I am still plugging away on my basket quilt. I have 1 and 1/2 borders done. Progress is being made.

Hope you have a great week QFF*!

Remember, we do this for fun..


  1. I love the colors in your quilt!

  2. Good numbers for the year - and it is amazing what muscles we use for sewing, even though we may not use up too many calories!


  3. Wow great you used the exact same amount as you brought in. That is a winning week!!

  4. Your numbers are great! At this rate at the end of the year you will have reached your fabric goals and you'll have beautiful arms! Keep up the great work!
