fabric report 6/21

I decided not to border the blue and yellow quilt but I haven't done anything else to it yet.  I really need to get moving-look at my numbers!  Darn Dr Who fabric! 
 
I ended up finding the Starry Night Dr Who fabric and bought three yards.  I'll be glad I did someday.  













Then I ordered six fat quarters of Kiss the Cook by Dear Stella.  Red really loves the fabric.  I think I'll make potholders out of it.

to border or not to border

We've been under a tropical storm warning since last night so I spent the day sewing.  Now I'm trying to decide if I want to border this one or not.

Fabric Report

Guess I better get moving on my blue and yellow quilt!  I went to Joann's and bought a yard each of two different Dr Who fabrics and three yards of an adorable Viking flannel. I also ordered some fat quarters online but they aren't here yet!

new project

For some reason I really been drawn to blue lately-it must be all that Cub Scouting!  I normally don't care for blue at all but I saw a HST quilt in blues and yellows somewhere and was really captured by it.  So this has pushed it's way to the top of my queue. I was trying to decide if I wanted to add some light blue but after playing around I'm definitely going to go for the high contrast of blue and yellow.

fabric report

I haven't done any sewing to speak of this week. Neither did I purchase any fabric though I was sorely tempted! I've been focusing on digging through boxes of stuff that are all over the house in hopes of getting rid of some of them.  I did start on the Gingham Check Shawlette pattern I downloaded from knitpicks.com.  I'm doing it in shades of yellow for my sister.  I've started it about five times.  I hope I'm doing it properly!

the one that got away. . .


I was really happy to finish this quilt for the Auction.  It went to our good friend Danny for $300!  And, even better, look at the state of my fabric report!

gone fishin'


So here is my weekend's work.  I still need to decide what I am going to do about the borders.  The pattern has a two inch stop border and a six inch outer border.  I don't think the stop border is going to work-plus I'm out of fabric!  So I think I am going to just use the brown fishing lures fabric.  Need to calculate that out.  I did end up replacing the canoe fabric with the blue float bobbin fabric. Thankfully, it was on sale as was the other yard of batik I added to stash. I'm looking forward to next week's fabric report as I am going to claim all I used in this quit-plus three yards of backing!
