Quilt Rush!

Before my report, take 2 minutes to watch this U-tube video, already seen by almost 3 million people, in preparation for next weekend's Royal Nuptials.

The 12th annual "Quilt Rush" shop hop in Northern California is going on as we speak and I'm pleased to say, that for the first time, I completed it!! What fun! If you've never gone on a shop hop before, grab a quilting buddy or your significant other and head off. A few of the shops I'd never been to and, let me tell you, I now know which shop has the best selection of Civil War fabric is AND which shop has the best batik selection. I bought everything on my list and then some! (I like to save up a list so I buy at least a little something in each shop although it is certainly not required). 

Of course, this means my stash report took a hit--although I did make a couple of backs so all is not so bad. I could not resist these fat quarters of "Charlevoix Summer" a 1910-1935 repro by Moda from a shop I like to support that's 80 miles away.

Added this week: 10.75 yards
Used this week: 5.5 yards
Added this year: 80 yards
Used this year: 67 yards
Stash NOT busted: -13 yards
                              HAPPY QUILTING!!
