Week 8 Stash

I was a little better this week than last. I didn't buy 23 yards of fabric for one thing! LOL

I also started a new quilt. My husband is a huge Civil War buff and since this year is the 150th anniversary of the beginning of this historical event I thought I'd ask him if he wanted me to make him a quilt to honor it. (This is the guy who implied about 8 years ago that we had too many quilts in the house--HAHAHAHA, too many quilts!! Not possible. . . )

Anyway, he surprised me by saying 'yes' he did want a Civil War quilt--for our California King-Sized Bed! So, I've planned out a 110" x 110" quilt using 'Birds In The Air blocks', inspired by a quilt I saw in Nancy Rink's booth at the Road to California Quilt Show. (I bought all the fabric in the form of a fat quarter tower from her too!)

So I used 5 yards of it for the blocks pictured here:

Fabric purchased this week: 0
Fabric purchased year to date: 50 yards
Fabric used this week: 4.25 yards
Fabric used year to date: 42 yards
Net used: -8 yards

See what all the other Happy Quilters are doing on Judy's wonderful blog!
